There aren’t many coffee shops in Markham that aren’t Second Cup, Starbucks, and Tim Hortons… and now there is Bean Around the World, a coffee shop from British Columbia that opened its first location here.
I’m not much of a coffee person. Excessive caffeine gives me headaches and I’ve never gotten past the bitter taste of coffee, which is something I don’t intend to get over after seeing the coffee addictions during exam season. However, I do appreciate a place that does a good cup of java and has a couple side options for people who do choose to go without.
If you love your coffee prepared on the spot, Atlas is the place to be. The lady working at the counter was one of the co-owners, and very friendly and easy-going. They opened in late February and already seem to have quite a few regulars.
