You could easily enjoy a day of yarn shopping in Toronto without every leaving Queen Street. If thatʼs your plan, then we recommend starting out on the far West side, where youʼll find Knit Cafe.
Weʼve been to a few places that have tried to combine tasty yarns with tasty eats but most of them tend to come up short on the culinary side, settling for some good coffee and biscotti of a questionable age. Knit Cafe goes above and beyond, serving vegetarian pizzas, quiches, blondies, and an array of teas and coffees.Their latte even comes highly recommended by the staff of Romni Wools, their competitor down the street, displaying some of that famous Canadian friendliness.
Knit Cafe carries a nice selection of books and Brittany needles, along with yarns from
Malabrigo, Lambʼs Pride, Cascade, Peace Fleece, Misti Alpaca, Sheep Shop Yarn Co., Noro, Handmaiden, Koigu, and Shibui. They have a little roving, and some cute kits from Fleece Artist.Itʼs a good spot to gather your strength for a big day of Toronto Yarn Crawling.
