Snakes and Lattes

Snakes and Lattes is a board game cafe in Toronto, Canada located at 600 Bloor Street West.[1] Guests pay a cover charge of $5 ($2.50 for children) to stay and play board games as long as they like, from the cafe's collection of over 3000 board games.[1] There is no wifi available at the cafe, as the focus is on playing games and socialising with friends.[2][3] The cafe serves small food and beverage items including some alcoholic beverages. Being of legal drinking age is not required to enter, unlike its upcoming sister location Snakes and Lagers.

History

Snakes and Lattes was opened on August 31, 2010 by French couple Ben Castanie and Aurelia Peynet.[4][2] As the cafe gained popularity it quickly outgrew its seating capacity. In 2011 the adjacent property was purchased and the wall between the two properties was demolished, adding roughly 2000 square-feet to the existing cafe.[5]

In 2014 a sister location was announced called Snakes and Lagers.[6]
