George Bernard Shaw once said, “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.” His words appear true in the life of all human beings and especially students.

On the days when you arrive for 8 a.m. class or study late for your exams, all one needs is a meal that can turn the pressure off in a single bite.

Cafe 260 is across the street from George Brown College’s centre for business. It is a four minute walk from the St. James campus. The cafe offers all day long ‘Breggfast’ sandwiches and burritos which range from around $3.25 to $6.25, with the option of adding avocado, cheese, ham, and tomatoes.

The cafe offers a variety of made to order fresh sandwiches, paninis, soups, and vegan options. According to staff at the cafe, the tuna sandwich is one of the most popular items on the menu.

Cafe 260 also offers an enormous range of hot beverages. There is coffee and espresso-based drinks, hot chocolate, as well as iced drinks ranging from Italian sodas, Americanos, chai and matcha. The most popular beverage for students is the Nutella latte which costs $4.25.

Apart from the quick bite and quick sip options, the cafe also offers a variety of baked goods, including cookies, muffins, brownies, tarts, bagels as well as vegan and gluten free options to serve the belly.

The main highlight of the cafe is that no frozen veggies or sandwiches are used. Everything from beverages to sandwiches is made fresh.

The service is smooth and the food presentation is mouth watering. The prices are student friendly and the food quality is more than just satisfying for a one time meal. The ambiance is pleasant and its proximity to the GBC campuses makes it an ideal spot for students to satisfy their taste buds.
