Some coffee shops have a distracting bustle, but Dark Habit in Queens Park is stylish and calm. Seating is limited here and it can be busy during peak times, but for most of the day you’ll easily find space at one of their larger tables, or at the window. Once you’re in you’re in. The excellent soundtrack makes it the perfect place to stop for a couple or three hours to break up the day, and there are few spots in this part of town that care as much about the quality of the coffee they serve as this place does. If only it stayed open past 4pm we’d probably spend our nights here as well as our days.
