Hidden away, independent cafes, worth making a special trip to visit.

Recently there was a thread for "Small Lovely Winebar/ Cafe?"
http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/586023.
The 15 replies swiftly moved to recommendations for 'Crush' and 'Le Select', which are not really small or Cafes.

It would be great to have a list of small independant cafes that are worth a special trip to visit, just because they are different or fun in some way. Two that come to mind are:

Regal Heights Cafe; 145 Lauder Av. just south of St.Clair, West of Oakwood. A friendly and informal sort of place, very personal service, limited food, good coffee. Great for quietly reading a newspaper or sitting outside in Summer.

Pan Perdu; North side of St. Clair at Christie. ( many comments in other posts here). Small, excellent, very French, patisserie/Cafe. Limited, high quality food. Slightly pricey. Good for a mind trip to Paris.

Any others that should be added to the list??
