Rebecca’s Toronto Guide: Bobbette and Belle

When I was applying to Universities, there was only one thing I knew for sure.

I wanted to be in a city.

While some people crave the allure of big homecoming parties in small University towns where pretty much everyone you meet is between the age of 18-25, I knew that I needed the hustle and bustle of city living. 

I love being out and about in Toronto, exploring coffee shops and restaurants, visiting underground art exhibits and shows, and taking in the sights from each new neighbourhood. After 3 years of living in the city, I have accumulated a pretty good list of Toronto hot spots and hidden gems and I figured it was time that I share some of my favourites with all of you.

Starting off with one of my all time faves: Bobbette and Belle.

Now if you follow me on Instagram (which you should, @RebeccaKazdan, it’s a good time) you have probably heard of Bobbette and Belle because I am very guilty of going there to take various fake studying pictures while using their lattes and baked goods as props (it’s all just so aesthetically pleasing!)

I stumbled upon this little establishment in December of first year when I was looking for somewhere to study for my very first University exam (DRST 1000 – Here and Now: Understanding Live Theatre, I crushed it). I strongly believe that your environment influences how you work, and so I went to find somewhere to foster my inner theatre history nerd.

As soon as I walked into Bobbette and Belle, I feel in love. From its adorable shabby chic decor, to the extensive drink menu, to the array of dessertsthis cafe is the perfect place to live out my sophisticated Parisian fantasy. They also win huge bonus points for being walking distance from Glendon (okay, I admit it is a pretty long walk, but on a nice day it’s totally doable).

But enough of my rambling, it’s time for…

The facts, just the facts

That’s it for this week! If you visit Bobbette and Belle, please let me know what you think! Also be sure to request more places for me to review, because there is nothing I love more than pushing my unsolicited opinions on others via the internet.

À la prochaine,

Rebecca
