Start your day right. On the road to becoming a (voluntary) caffeine-addict, George Brown College has plenty of caffeine options. There are a nice number of coffee spots on campus, and plenty of independent cafes to unwind at with a laptop a block or two down or around.

You can simplify the walking distance by bracing the following on-campus and familiar spots:
Cafes: On Campus
–  Tim Hortons (SJ building A, basement and ground)
–  Kings Lounge (menu – SJ building A, ground)

–  Coffee kiosk (SJ building A, level 4)
–  GBCafé (SJ building B, level 2)

Cafes: Familiar spots
–  Starbucks (George/King, SW cnr @ 185 King Street East)
–  Second Cup (Jarvis/King, SE cnr @163 King Street East)
–  Aroma Espresso (Princess/King, NW cnr @ 250 King Street East)

But, since you’re already going to spend the extra dollars, why not try out an independent spot? Strangely, I have never appreciated hot drinks, so I don’t have a word on their roasts – but, reviews I have come across say many great things. Each have an array of sweets, and some, tasty sandwiches!
