Oretta Cafe – Quaint Italian cafe in the city

Easily missed by passers-by walking along Toronto’s busy King St. sidewalks, Oretta Cafe is the epitome of the definition of ‘quaint’. With art deco-inspired colourful tiles, brass light fixtures, and the smell of freshly brewed coffee from an authentic Italian espresso maker, it’s hard to find another quiet little spot in the city I feel so much at home in.

The facade of the cafe is hidden in plain sight, at the back end of Oretta Restaurant. A narrow alleyway between the restaurant and their formidable competitor, Starbucks, reveals a path to Oretta Cafe’s front doors. Take a big old sniff as you enter the cafe. The smell of freshly baked pizza and pastries is simply intoxicating! And make sure to snag an empty 2-seater table when you get a chance, otherwise there’s a large wooden harvest table with plenty of seating.

Oretta Cafe is a modern twist to the authentic Italian cafe experience, keeping up the warmth and vibrancy of its culture one cup of cappuccino at a time. It’s a must-see spot if you’re looking to check out while still steps away from the hustle of the city.
