Coffee Shops In Toronto That Accept Reusable Cups & Mugs

Hi Everyone,

Now that the world is starting to open up again and Stage 3 is almost upon us in Toronto, coffee shops are starting to see life again - YAY! I was so sad to see some shut down permanently.

I have been craving an oat milk latte like no other, but unfortunately so many coffee shops are now rejecting reusable mugs; which makes that latte a little less appealing. Looking at local coffee shops across Canada, disposable items are on the rise due to COVID restrictions regarding in-house dining. Luckily, there are still a few cafes that realize the importance of lowering their carbon footprint and have not banned the "bring your own mug".

After much research I have compiled a list of coffee shops that you can visit in Toronto (zero waste style).
