After 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.
Mathew 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.” Manic Coffee, 426 College Street – http://www.maniccoffee.com
