5 Tasty Cafes in Markham you NEED to Check out!

5 Tasty Cafes in Markham you NEED to Check out!

As the weather begins to get colder, nothing perks you up better than a delicious hot drink – whether that be tea, coffee, hot chocolate or another piping hot beverage to warm you up. For you coffee and tea drinkers out there, here are some awesome local Markham cafes that boast a great selection of drink and food options with a soothing atmosphere.

Here are 5 of my top choices:

1) Alchemy Coffee - 4361 Hwy 7 Unit 1, Unionville, ON 

Despite its name, Alchemy Coffee has more than just a selection of delicious drinks. They also have various pastries that are baked in-house, along with dinner options for anyone looking to grab a bite. The prices are quite reasonable, making it a great choice for tea and coffee drinkers alike!

2) Miss Lin Café - 3601 Hwy 7 #119, Markham, ON 

The beautiful décor, combined with the yummy food options and attentive staff make this a must visit location. The atmosphere is also quite peaceful, and it is the type of establishment that you can bring your laptop to and really get to work!

3) Espresso 21 - 159E Main St, Unionville, ON

This gourmet Italian brunch spot serves delicious pastas, coffee, pastries and even ice cream! The most challenging issue you’ll deal with when dining in or ordering takeout, is figuring out exactly what you want to eat, due to the abundance of choices you have.

4) SCENIC Coffee + Brunch - 8241 Woodbine Ave #7, Markham, ON

Staying true to its name, SCENIC Coffee + Brunch only operates during acceptable brunch times (it normally closes its doors at 3 PM or 3:30 PM depending on the day). The Japanese influence in its menu choices give it unique flavours that you will be hard-pressed to find in other cafes.

5) It’s the Cat’s Meow Café - 138 Robinson St, Markham, ON

This is one of the few cafes I’ve visited which always seems to be bustling and near full capacity. I have yet to visit at a time when it isn’t packed with regulars who frequent this establishment for its high quality coffee along with its tasty lunch and dinner selections.
