MANIC COFFEE BRINGS SOME ‘CAFE SOCIETY’ TO COLLEGE STREET BY NOT OFFERING WI-FI

MANICCOFFEE2After visiting coffee-mad cities PORTLAND and SEATTLE, Matthew Lee decided TORONTO needs a cafe where people actually look at each other and talk over coffee. He’s proudly declared that his Manic Coffee shop has entered the Wi-Fi Liberation Zone, and he plans to keep it there.

MANICCOFFEE1Mathew Lee: “When you look at cafes with Wi-Fi, they’re full of people just working away on their laptops. It’s a closed-off environment where everyone is in their own little world. When you take Wi-Fi away, you’re encouraging people to have a conversation with people next to them.”
