since we're still on the 'cafe' side of things...

I went to the new cafe in Westdale ("Westdale Cafe") today... it was a bit generic-looking, but nice inside.

The coffee and tea were Planet Bean and Four O'Clock respectively - both fair-trade and organic, and brands I know are decent - Planet Bean is based in Guelph, I think. Several lunch/food options as well.

Speaking to one of the employees, it looks like there's a big emphasis on going green - the cups are compostable, tables and cabinets are bamboo, the floor is flax product, the paint is a zero-emission and the countertops are recycled quartz, etc. Lots of details like that.

Lots of tables and chairs, one comfy banquette - no real couches or chairs, though.it was mostly people older than students, there for lunch or a coffee on their break, which was nice too.
