Thanks to a few well-known tipplers (coughHemingwaycough), writers have something of a reputation for indulging. Though that may be more stereotype than reality, over the years certain bars and cafés have become linked with the literary crowd who’ve gone there to eat, drink, socialize, and occasionally write. Inspired by a recent LitHub article featuring 35 Literary Cafés. I thought I’d share a couple of them here, as well as adding some the list missed.
Although not as well-known as the others on the list, here are some local-ish spots this Toronto writer thinks are worth a mention:
Writers unknown, famous, and infamous have always populated cafés and bars all over the world. Comment and tell me which ones you think deserve a mention.

Nice article! Coffee and Diet Coke are are
more my speed, but wouldn’t mind an a bit of a tipple from the last one.
Thanks 🙂 I’m not much of a drinker, either, but I could make some exceptions to visit these spots. I haven’t been to the one in Montreal but it strongly reminds me of a place in Ottawa I went to once (there’s definitely a certain look to Canadian bars/restaurants from a certain era).
