Nothing holds your hand, drags you to the shower and says “it’s time to roll out of bed and conquer today” like an encouraging mug of hot coffee – or iced coffee, if you’re into that. Luckily for us, Brampton feels the same way about caffeinated beverages, and proof of that lies in the fact that our city has so many cafe options to choose from! Here are ten places that will give you that zing you’re looking for!
1. Starbucks, 65 Dufay Road
You’re no stranger to Starbs, and you might have mixed feelings about the wait line, but you always go back for a reason – it’s home. Your expectations are always met, the staff knows your name, your drinks will never let you down and the space is always familiar and inviting. Make your way home in Brampton again.
2. Tim Hortons, 10621 Chinguacousy Road
Good old Timmies is always there for every Canadian who needs a pick-me-up! You can’t go wrong with a classic Double-Double paired with exceptionally yummy and perfectly bite-sized Timbits!
