“... the most coveted seats, arguably, are those
lining the window bar; those that look out over Yonge
just waiting to devour its sidewalk entertainment.”


Balzac’s is honoured to be the coffee company selected for the recently revitalized Toronto Reference Library, an iconic Toronto institution whose vision is to become “Toronto’s foremost public centre for lifelong learning, the exchange of ideas and community involvement.” This café opens into the Library’s main public space as well as Yonge Street creating a micro-community of book and coffee lovers alike. A winning combination as Balzac himself knew all too well.
