We used to go to Pazzo's bakery on Ontario St. They used to offer French pastries and delicious coffee for breakfast plus good customer service; with that in mind we stepped in Revel Café. I ordered a decaf cappuccino and a pain au chocolate. The coffee was extremely bitter, perhaps beans were overly roasted and the pain au chocolate was... More

Fantastic croissants. Superb coffee. Typical coffee house decor and atmosphere. Some seating outside in the back. The little nut crescent cookies are great too.

We have been coming here for our family coffees. We like the atmosphere and service. The selection is great and the different options for "snacks" is great.

We were visiting some old friends from the Netherlands, who live now in Canada. They invited us for a meal at Revell. She had just finished a masterclass at kitchen management, so quite qualified to judge the performance. It turned out to be a fantastic evening with live music. The courses were more or less inspired by the Jewish cuisine.... More

The coffee is weak so I would not recommend Revel for coffee. For tea, treats, atmosphere, and a sense of welcome I do recommend them though. Their London Fogs are delicious!

Revel has had its ups and downs over the years but I've done my best, as a resident determined to support local businesses, to give it a fair shake. Sadly, it always falls short. Some specifics: the space is really very appealing but they don't seem to understand the art of coffee. All over the world people drink different styles... More

A lovely place for a break. Service was a little slow--even accounting for being outside of Toronto. The hibiscus iced tea was delicious.
