In our quest for awesome espresso based drinks-our last stop, Thor Espresso mentioned the Indie Coffee pass. It’s a pass that includes Indie coffee shops all over Toronto and allows a user (for a one time fee) a drink with a value of up to $4.00. It’s a great idea-and if the shops weren’t so spread out, Cherry and I would have surely purchased (however we are restricted to shops we can get to within our 1 hour lunch break).
One of such shops was Mylk Uncookies Espresso Boutique! The primary reason for us visiting was to try the Almond Milk lattes that @joyoushealth raves about. It was more than worth it-and the majority of the treats are vegan & gluten free. They also have some raw selections. I was hoping to try the salted caramel bar, but alas, they were sold out. No worries, I had a brownie:
The Almond Milk Latte was delightful! Rich and creamy (with their own home-made almond milk). The gluten free brownie was equally delicious:
The interior of Mylk Uncookies is equally impressive-very clean, minimalist type decor. It’s not a huge space but there’s room to sit down. There were 4 other people there when we arrived and a walk-in.
Cherry and I left Mylk Uncookies 2 happy girls with full bellies! I don’t think we will be making any more lunch time trips but this is a place I would enjoy on the weekend either in the morning or on a late afternoon. Highly recommend stopping by if you are in the neighborhood!
You can find Mylk Uncookies here.
What’s your favorite espresso spot? Is it independent or a chain?
Have you ever tried an almond milk latte?
