There is one thing I can always count on when I go home to Toronto...and that is a perfect latte. It may sound like something relatively easy to come by and yet, time and time again, I find myself disappointed by coffee shops and their respective attempts.
Ok, so maybe I am being a little predujiced here, there are a few places in Boston where you can get a great latte, The South End Buttery for one, has great espresso and thus, a great latte, and the Berkeley Perk Cafe also does a good job. However, these places also have a special resonance because they are unique, singular locations.
In Canada, we have a fabulous coffee chain called Second Cup. Although it does not look like much from the outside, what is brewed within, is really what makes it so much better than...well Starbucks.
