Segovia Coffee Company

This year, a brand new independent coffee shop officially opened its doors in downtown Brampton bringing high-quality coffee beans from Nicaragua. Known as Segovia Coffee Company, it opened its doors at 46 Main Street North on July 12.

Segovia is located at the former home of T by Daniel, an independent tea shop that has since moved into Bramalea City Centre. They roast handcrafted 100 per cent Arabica beans in small batches and serve their coffee across the GTA.

The shop serves treats like empanadas, dulche de leche cookies and of course, a selection of delicious coffee and tea. The cafe space boasts one table at the storefront and a few tables in the back area with a Latin vibe throughout.


Fan D FlameIn 2018, a new Filipino restaurant opened. It’s called Fan “D” Flame, and it’s serving up some delicious food from its spot in the plaza at Main and Bovaird, in the same area at Rona and the passport office.

A ton of classic Filipino dishes, with some Chinese and Western fusion, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. From fried rice and noodles, to chicken wings and spring rolls, to halo-halo and lechon, you’ll find it all at Fan “D” Flame. According to the owners, this new restaurant offers dine-in, takeout and even catering.

Restaurant owners highlight that Fan “D” Flame roasts their pic in house, with an oven that can fit eight pigs for roasting. It’s called Cebu’s lechon, and if you eat pork, this is definitely something you’ll want to try. And, this place serves bubble tea!
