It was hard to ignore L-eat Express last week, with its free coffee each and every morning. But hey, it worked — and into the café I went for the very first time. When you step inside, the first thing you’ll notice is a tall metal rack with the day’s pastries, cookies and baked desserts. If only every morning could start, guilt-free, with one these delicious pastries and a whole milk latte.

Pictured above: the dark chocolate chip cookies, topped with a sprinkle of fleur de sel. Cookies are $2 each, $10 for a half-dozen or $20 for a full dozen. The café’s frozen dough ($7) can be purchased to make your own cookies at home.  

For those looking for more substance, there are egg sandwiches ($3.75) with egg, basil, tomato, arugula and cheddar; or the breakfast express ($4) with chive scrambled eggs, potato hash, spinach and cheddar cheese, +/- bacon. 

L-eat Express, 410 Adelaide St. W., 416-601-9226
