#PayPalitTO Series | Eating & Drinking For Free in Toronto [Using PayPal] - Episode 4: RSquared Cafe & Mean Bao

Click here for the original post to get more context on this series.

I've gone here a few times whenever I chance out West Queen West and this is one of my favourite coffee spots in this neighborhood.

I've only tried two items (one of them multiple times): The Spanish Latte (latte with condensed milk and cayenne pepper) and the Pink Latte (almond tea with steamed milk).

Unlike Jimmy's Coffee, besides being closer to Bellwoods, there's so much natural lighting here, and so many outlets. The space is equivalent to the Jimmy's on Baldwin, minus the patio (sadly no patio).
Many people work here (since this screams a great work environment) though it's always nice to come chill here and socialize too. It's decorated with artist's work on the front, and old Chinese movie posters at the back.

 All the outlets!

 Spanish Latte. Best. Latte. Ever.

On that note, they have extra treats and small (I mean teeny tiny sandwiches). Can't say much about their food since I've never had it. 

Lastly, they have stamp cards (unlike Jimmy's which I really wish they'd start having)

✎-------------------------------------------------------------------Overall Verdict--------------------------------------------------------------------
- Outlets, outlets everywhere!
- Enough space to sit somewhere
- Great lattes (& coffee I'm sure)

No patio

Mean Bao

✎-------------------------------------------------------------------Overall Verdict--------------------------------------------------------------------
- Great baos. At least their pork one is in my opinion.
- Not really a sit-down area. At least with Mean Bao by the Grange, there's a lot of cafeteria spots, but here, it's more takeout
- Takes a while. But as a pro, it's pretty fresh!
