Boost Your Productivity in These Cute Coffee Shops


Caffeine and assignments just go well together. With the school year starting to gear up, it’s nice to leave the library once in a while and check out some of the cute coffee shops that are near you. Studying on campus all the time can get boring, so go explore the city for the sake of your GPA!

Blended Café | LIV Apartments
Studying may not be the most fun activity ever, but it’s not as bad if you don’t have to leave the building, right? Grab some coffee and a breakfast sandwich right downstairs and get settled in for a day of productivity!

Pressed | 750 Gladstone St. | 2 min. walk
A rustic spot serving fair-trade coffee and gourmet sandwiches. They’ve got beer on tap too, for when you get to reward yourself for finishing your work.
P.S. Show your LIV key tag and get 10% off (excluding alcohol)!

Bar Robo | 692 Somerset St. W | 10 min. walk
Delicious premium coffee and baked goods galore. They always have cool events going on at night and on weekends, so drop by on an evening for some fun!

Happy Goat Coffee Co. | 35 Rue Laurel | 15 min. walk
High quality, fresh and fair-trade coffee every time. The perfect spot to get your work done!

Jackson Café | 10 Daly Ave. | 20 min. bus ride
Located in the new John Ruddy Cube Art Gallery, this modern and exciting café has tons of natural light and an aesthetic atmosphere. Stroll through and admire the art for a nice break.

Black Squirrel Books & Espresso Bar | 1073 Bank St. | 25 min. bus ride
A bookstore and a café all in one – does it really get any better than that? They host live events all week long, so stay a little longer and enjoy this hip spot.

Whether it’s a short elevator ride or a 20 minute bus ride, you deserve to ditch the library and get some fresh air. Wishing everyone a good start to the semester!
