“Welcoming neighbourhood cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Sitting here at a comfortable, sunny window table on a Friday morning, surrounded by locals who are relaxing and chatting between the tables about travel & good books & what's happening on the weekend. My son & his girlfriend live nearby & this has become their "third place". It's clear why! In Lesleyville, one of those Toronto neighbourhoods that are not quite as well known as the nearby Beach district, the Annex or Kensington Market, but just as interesting. For people who want a sense of ordinary ambiance, it will give a visitor a good taste of why, years after moving to Vancouver, this city is still the place of my heart. Located on Queen St East between Leslie & Pape, it is a short & interesting street car ride from downtown & the subway. They also seem to have a number of Gluten Free options.

“Awesome coffee ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Almost as good as Melbourne coffee, great friendly staff. We went here everyday whilst staying with family and did not bother trying anywhere else.

“Great coffee and ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

My wife and I have been to Tango Palace twice now, and both times have been great. The staff are very friendly and fun to interact with. The coffee is very good, certainly better than the majority of shops I've been to in Toronto. My wife is primarily a tea drinker, and Tango Palace apparently has excellent tea. She had the lychee and pomegranate tea last time, and it was really exceptional. I had a sip, and it was some of the best tea I've ever had. The treats and cookies are also tasty, but nothing too special.
We really like the atmosphere; it's vintage decoration, and my wife is in love with the old-timey looking espresso machine. The only problem is finding a place to sit, as the cafe is very popular.
The only downside for us is it's on the other side of town. We'll look forward to going the next time we're in the Leslie area!
