Seven Grams: Neighbourhood Coffee House

Seven GramsThe Perry's neighbourhood coffee house, is located on the east side of Avenue just south of Davenport. We found out this intimate café gets its name from the measure of ground coffee beans it takes to make the ultimate espresso shot.

Serving premium coffees from all around the globe, Seven Grams acquires its coffee beans from Te Aro, an artisan wholesale coffee roaster located in Toronto’s Leslieville.

The espresso and coffee are made using the La Marzocco GB5 – hand made in Florence, giving you a little taste of Italy! Every espresso drink at Seven Grams is served with two shots of espresso, whether for a strong morning bolt or after-lunch boost. As several coffees have a precise way to be brewed, Seven Grams uses the Trifecta and pour-over method in order to flawlessly create a finely distinguished cup of coffee.

We were wooed even more that most of the delicious baked foods, sandwiches and panini’s are made in-house, including gluten free and vegan options.

As an advocate of supporting local artists in Toronto, the café’s gallery walls are filled with local artwork.  Currently, Matt Durant’s is featured, check out his work online at

This all season café has a quaint patio for warm summer days and a fireplace on the lower level for the cozy winter. With a tranquil atmosphere and two floors there is plenty of seating to enjoy with your favourite beverage, laptop or book.
