Webster Update Toronto December 30, 2009
Great Neighborhood Coffee

Great coffee and homemade treats, nice staff, and very pretentious customers. It's fun to see all the statement glasses, broken-social-scene beards, and designer dogs that the customers are sporting.

Very cute cafe on the roncesvales strip. The interior is very cute and cozy and appearance. Prices are very fair and they have a nice selection of treats to pair with the caffeine beverages. Only downfall is its cash only but that's probably why the prices for everything is really good. Everyone who works here I view friendly and welcoming!

The place is a very simple coffee stop. It is known for their baked goods from the Google reviews. I ordered Americano and one baked cookie. I forget the name of the latter. It's brown, chewy, and not too sweet to eat. You can smell strong flavor of dry longan while eating. Love it so much. The staff is friendly and will chat with you as you want from my observation. However, I think the price... more

Cherry Bomb is our weekend treat. My husband and I go there sometimes on the weekends for a yummy coffee. The staff is friendly, lattes are delicious and their baked goodies are yummers. Some of our faves are pecan scones, date squares, chocolate croissants and the cheddar jalapeño croissants. Everything is fresh and delicious.

I have been here a couple times now and have to admit I have had some of my best coffee here since moving to Toronto. So far I have resisted the temptation to try any of their muffins and baked goods but if appearances are anything to go buy I suspect that they would be just as good if not better than their coffee

I thought this place was ok. Not much interaction with the barista. I just gave him my order, he made it, collected my money, then went back to doing whatever he was doing before, behind the counter.

Despite the larger front of the café, the inside was pretty much empty. Only a coupla long counters and some stools. No patrons, but then again, it was a gorgeous day out!

The best thing Cherry Bomb serves is their muffins. The have a delicious crumble topping. The croissant are also tasty, not as buttery as the French do but decent enough. I love the coffee too. I like a bigger size for the price but it's still worth it. I always find the staff to be friendly and the customers are also very laid back.

Love Cherry Bomb - this is the best coffee shop on Ronces, as far as I'm concerned. All of their pastries are made in-house (freshly baked croissants!!) and there Americano coffee is delicious. The only problem with Cherry Bomb is it's cash only, so just keep that in mind.

Not much of a coffee person... Had a soy latte once, iced latte, and another time lemon ginger tea ( which was just lemon in hot water and cut up ginger- bleh) ...

Lining up here can be a bit chaotic .... I'm sure I picked up someone else's coffee at one time ... All I heard was latte an I was in a hurry ... It ended up being soy latte... Hope the other person wasn't lactose intolerant. Sorry!... more

Being a freelance computer programmer with a penchant for travelling, there are two certainly in my life: Visiting lots of countries and drinking lots of coffee.

One fine day, I found myself in Roncy. I wanted some coffee and pastries and somehow stumbled into Cherry Bomb. I must say, the name alone got me hooked. The place was simple but neat with that irresistible scent of coffee and freshly baked treats. Maybe it's a little hipstery, with an iconic Flying Pigeon mounted on one side, but I would say there's a little bit of vintage/rustic feel to it.... more

Cherry Bomb has a menu full of good coffee, a rockin' soundtrack, and lots of fresh-baked goods on hand. Apparently they've started roasting their own beans too. However, they only have 7 seats, half an outlet (half used by a spot heater), and no Wi-Fi. Interestingly, they chose to keep the door open today, though it's not a warm day. There's a steady stream of customers, which is a good sign... more

Lattes are good but not good enough to have to deal with the snotty employees. You know those early 2000s movies where there was a cliche obnoxious coffee shop barista who acted like ordering coffee from them was pulling them away from their far more important work? Well if you want to experience that first hand head over to cherry bomb

really good pastries. although don't get an espresso with the spicy scone, you won't taste anything. I found the espresso wasn't really full bodied after trying two different espressi. Perhaps it is too much to have 4 grinders all dialed into perfection or perhaps I just like a more full bodied coffee like a ristretto. Def try it out.

I met a friend at this happenin' spot on Roncesvalles. It was my first visit. The "Flying Pigeon" bicycle hanging on the wall that greets customers is a nice touch. They've been built since 1950!

I've been going to Cherry Bomb for two years now. Their coffee was great at first. But now I find their Americanos very inconsistent. Sometimes good sometimes bad. I'm not sure if it's barista dependent though. Any regulars notice the change to the quality of their coffees?
