Mercury Espresso Bar
915 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4M 1J4, Canada
Mercury is one of Toronto’s original specialty cafés. Opening in 2006 in Leslieville, this staple of the neighbourhood has been ingrained in the community for over a decade. With a focus on partnering with socially conscious coffee suppliers, their list of coffee roasteries over the years is a laundry list of some of the world's best. The selection changes frequently, but you will see names like George Howell, La Cabra, Onyx, Structure and Monogram to name a few. And taking their partnerships a step further, Mercury created their own espresso blend in collaboration with 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters.
The café fits their reputation perfectly. Their corner location and recognizable front façade hasn’t changed very much over the years, except for maybe a couple coats of paint. Whether sitting at the window inside or out on the patio in the summer, one of the best places in the city for a cup of coffee also has some of the city’s best people -watching.
