My first impression about this coffee shop: "Wow... this is gonna be expensive", but I was wrong. Normal price, delicious coffee, good vibe, just the place that prople working and living in the downtown needs (my case).
Service: Just average, but is ok. Cofe: Delicious taste. I would love to receive it in my table -they don't bring to you- but is fine.
The only thing that I don't like much is that the tables looks and feels tight whit no room for a private moment, specially when you are looking for a time alone and calm. Seems like you will mistake you table and leave your coffee in the ond next to you lol! But beside this, everything was fine. Great job, great place.

I finally stepped through the doors and into a tastefully decorated cafe bistro reminiscent of earlier times with colourful tiles on the floor, brass chandeliers that beg to tell the story of where they originated and ever entertaining street level views from this European feeling cafe. I cannot wait for springtime to enjoy their sidewalk tables tucked away on Temperance Street, right off the hustle and bustle of Yonge Street. Servers are all in period uniform and the crowd is decidedly well heeled downtowners. Check out the history of the wealthy Dineen Family, the possible plight of their historic family mansion and enjoy the carefully restored space bearing their name in this charming cafe. For coffee on the go, there are still plenty of Tim's in the area. This is a place to meet with a special friend or business colleague for some relaxing conversation and warm atmosphere.

Dineen is so much better than the well known chains nearby I don't know where to begin. The coffee is excellent, food is fresh and service is friendly. Value is better than the chains too. Atmosphere is far superior to anything in the area (lots more seating than the same size Sbux).

This has really good coffee and desserts. The atmosphere is really welcoming - you just wanna stay at the cafe after you are done with your coffee and just relax

Sometimes on a Saturday afternoon while shopping at Queen and Yonge, you just want to get out of the crowds and have a nice cup of tea in great surroundings. To that end, walk south of Richmond and get to the Dineen Coffee shop in the revitalized Dineen building. Not only do you get a relaxing environment and a great cup of tea, but you also get to admire the great interior and surroundings created by the restoration.

This is a relatively new favourite but a favourite none the less.
