Flat White coffee just like in Australia & New Zealand

Flexitarian | Mar 30, 2010 09:44 AM

I just returned from 6 weeks in Australia where I have been many times and this time I got totally hooked on their Flat White coffee. Flat White refers to the method of preparing the milk that is added to the coffee. It is served in a small cup. A shot of espresso is poured into the cup and then steamed milk (with the froth being folded into the milk as it is being steamed) is added with a slight bit of foam on top, similar to a latte (or maybe a capuccino) but different.

The only place I have been able to find it is at the White Squirrel on Queen St. where I had one this weekend. It was simply the best of any cup of coffee I have ever had in Toronto, but the woman preparing it behind the counter appeared to want to be anywhere but in that coffee shop.

Does anyone know any other places in Toronto that one can get a Flat White? I don't know why it hasn't caught on here since it really is an abolutely delicious cup of coffee.
