With summer on its way we all start to move our caffeine addiction over to something a little more refreshing, iced coffee. Toronto has so many awesome options to mix up your early morning pick-me-up! These iced coffees are some of the best in the city, and they will make your work week just that much better!
1. Balzacs // 43 Hanna Avenue
Balzac's offers a variety of iced coffees, but a must have is the Caffè Affogato. This is a necessity for those hot and humid summer days that always seem to make an appearance. A shot of espresso with a scoop of gelato is the perfect excuse to have dessert before 10 AM.
2. Fika // 28 Kensington Ave
Fika's iced coffee is an amazing Monday morning pick me up. This iced coffee has a hint of mint, which keeps coffee breath at bay!
