The street is just east of Dundurn on Main, making it a prime spot for tourists and GTA-ers alike. Just off the Highway 403 ramp, a short drive would land you in a wonderland of cafes, cheese shops, bakeries, restaurants, clothing retailers, and more.
But back to coffee. Finch on Locke can be found just south of the bridge/train tracks, replacing Johnny's Coffee.
(Side: I'm not exactly certain, though I overhead that the name was the single aspect of the cafe that had changed. The owners supposedly owned another cafe up the Mountain called "Finch", which is why they initially chose "Johnny's". Currently, the cafe goes by "Finch on Locke", which I guess provides somewhat of a differentiation between the two locations.)
Natural light penetrating the outermost table, a reflective piece on the ceiling, and a tiny back window give the illusion of a higher ceiling.
Earning a great deal of appreciation was the Wi-Fi password, which had been clearly identified at the lower right hand corner.
I picked up a medium Mocha and Oatmeal Raisin cookie from the bar, and headed over to a dimly-lit section consisting a series of stout circular tables. Each was anticipated to hold up to a party of two, though the cushioned booth seating along the perimeter added the versatility of sitting as a group, or just merely working alongside others in silent harmony.
Towards the last few sips, a few coffee grinds were uncovered at the bottom of the cup. It's important to note that, generally, the grinds would be removed in their entirety. Though I particularly enjoyed this since it lent a bold, aromatic finish to the beverage.
The delicate string lights was another nice little touch.
