About Snakes and Lattes :
The Snakes and Lattes board game café was first opened in Toronto, Canada, and served as an inspiration for opening similar board game cafes in many cities across the world. We have prepared the following review for their College Street location. The exact address is 489 College Street, Toronto, Ontario, and this place offers food, drinks and a library of literally thousands of playable games.
There is street-side parking nearby as well as below-ground paid parking for cars and bikes, and the place is wheelchair accessible. It doesn’t take reservations, it is on a first-come, first-serve base, and there is free Wi-Fi. It is welcoming to kids and accommodating to large groups of people. Alcohol is served from its full bar, and the atmosphere is hipster and it can get pretty loud, especially on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, which are their most popular nights.
The menu is simple and appealing to everybody. The place opens every day at 11 AM and closes at midnight on Sunday to Thursday, and on Friday and Saturday, it stays open up until 2.30 AM.
