This coffee house has a few locations around Toronto. The staff is not stuck up but super friendly and makes you feel comfortable. They offer a variety of pastries and sandwiches as well as pretty cappuccinos:) Thank you for my art work

We stopped in to Dark Horse on the recommendation of a local friend and we were not disappointed. The service was friendly. The coffee and pastries were really good. The space (on Queen near the DVP) was open and attractive.

Visited today, and was not impressed with either the coffee or baristas... The lattes were mediocre at best, and the cafe was a mess and in need of a through cleaning. To top it off the baristas were busy with the pretentious regulars that they...More

We spent an hour here killing some time in east Toronto. We enjoyed a couple of lattes. I was worried about the new location. Its newness loses some of the original homey charm. I think this will pass with use and patina.

This cafe has good big tables to use your laptop and study with wifi. Unfortunately it's super busy and they have very loud music and no outlets.
