Spill the Beans
It’s not yet spring but already the denizens of Yorkville are perched outside people-gazing and sipping espressos in the sun.
These days the hotspot seems to be Zaza, a new espresso bar run by two gregarious Neapolitans.
The coffee is superb, “the best this side of Milan!” insists one regular. Beyond the usual fare, (espresso, latte, cappuccino, macchiato) Zaza plans to add affogato, espresso granita and gelato to the roster.
Don’t miss the delicious biscotti, homemade by an elderly signora and delivered fresh daily. And if it’s something cold you crave, try any one of the Italian aperitivi cooling in the fridge.
Zaza, 75 Yorkville Ave., Toronto, 416-823-4719.
