Every time I visit downtown, I seem to stumble in here for a coffee and a snack. Coffee is dependably good. I take it black, and it is never burnt or oily. I had a berry muffin today, which was flavourful and filling. This place...More

I ate in this place multiple times and it is my favorite lunch place in KW. The service IS slow, calling in and ordering upfront is a very good idea, but all food is very fresh, tasty and mostly vegan (they serve dairy cheese which...More

I have been a few times in the past few weeks, as I have rehearsal in a nearby space. I always drop in for a medium roast and a treat. Last time was probably the best peanut butter cookie I've ever had. Very creamy texture,...More

Definately hands down one of the best places to eat out. My wife and i just started our Vegan Diet, and the sandwiches, salad and soup were simply delicious. We had the Angry Vegan and The Benwich, but everything else looked great. Pricing was good,...More

Great little place in the heart of Kitchener. Close to bus station and a lot of paid parking around the area. Had a chai latte that was a little watery and a coffee cake that was a little too dry for my liking. I enjoyed...More

Thanks for your feedback! I am saddened to hear that you think we are pricey. We use organic ingredients, including organic local dairy and the products to make your coffee cake, couple that with fair wage and work policies, a sit-down cafe environment - its...More

If you're vegetarian, or vegan, there are lots of options here. I love the angry vegan sandwich. They always have a great soup, and gluten-free muffins too. A great selection of tea and coffee; I love the stone teapots. Sometimes the music can be a...More

Thanks for the great review! Sometimes in the afternoon, after the caffeine wears out, the music tends to get louder to keep us bouncing! If you ever find it obtrusive, please let us know and we will make the appropriate changes!

This is a great spot for vegans. The menu is diverse and the atmosphere laid-back and charming in that unmatched-furniture, hang-out-on-a-couch way. Between the two of us, we had an Angry Vegan and a panini. The food is good but there's not much of it....More

It is a little pricy but it is great for someone who is new to vegetarianism or veganism. I love that is so close by. They have lots of variety. I would definitely go back. Not a place I would go everyday. But I would...More
