Located on a trendy strip of Yonge St. between Sheppard Ave and Finch Ave, you
will find Bellissimo Café. From the outside it has a bit of a sandwich shop look with lots of signs to
inform you of the varied coffee treats that await you inside, but it does sport a tiny patio, which ain't

The interior is clean and the comfortable chairs and donut shop like tables are spaced out
pretty well. On one side u will find a wall of mugs, all for sale at rather inflated prices. On the other side is a
huge assortment of Tea's and other drinkables. Above, there are two TV's which were playing MuchMusic whilst we drank
The menu includes many a dessert, with lots of fresh fruits and real whip cream. The selection
of cakes, on the other hand are slightly lacking, but this coffee shop makes up for it by preparing a lot of their
desserts as you order. We were not so impressed with the somewhat MTV crowd atmosphere, but the 'school girls'
did indeed impress, if ever so slightly.
Can You Say Huge
Then there came this monstrous piece of cake. As mentioned, the selection was pretty
thin, just tree cakes in the display, but this one caught our eye. It's arrival produced both gasps and
embarrassment. We looked around to see if anyone was laughing.
We here at Coffee Club have run into some pretty big slices in our time, but we feel

Was it good? The fresh fruit was a treat drizzled with chocolate syrup and the whip
cream was fresh made, not canned. At first bite the cake was pretty good, but as one progressed thru the slice,
one found it getting mighty sweet and frosted. We would put this slice between alright and good.
What About The Coffee Jack?
House Blend: Oh we liked this one very much. It taste real fresh, just the
right strength, and yummy. It remined me of the Royal Blend at Second Cup.
