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. The exact address is 45 Eglinton Ave. E Toronto, just east of Yonge St., and this place offers food, drinks and a library of literally thousands of playable games.
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.
