My friends and I enjoyed the funky atmosphere and the unique offerings for lunch. I enjoyed my cabbage pancake (custom-made without the shrimp) garnished with fried eggs, wasabi aioli, bonito flakes and seaweed. It was very similar to okonomiyaki, although I can't remember what it was called on the menu. The service was slow but we were told that it... More

Good quality coffee (hard to find) in a really interesting setting. Great sweet treats to compliment the coffee. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area

We visited here recently for morning coffee. The coffee was not the best I tasted in the area. The real let down was the condition of the toilets. One of the cubicles in the ladies had an "out of order" sign on the door so I obviously used the other one. This toilet would not flush, there was no hand... More

The atmosphere was relaxed, and the food delicious. We referred two other tourist to go for a meal while shopping at a local market down the road. Definitely a great place to visit.

We love to visit Gananoque and this place is just one of the many reasons. It's tiny and you may have to wait if it's full, but the coffee is worth waiting for and the eggs Benedict are the best in town. Locally owned and all homemade. Definitely worth checking out. Good prices too.

Proper coffee from an espresso machine. Makes a very nice change from the filtered stuff. They have sandwiches as well.

Not a huge amount of selections on the menu, but some very different items are available. We went with another couple. They both had the beef dip with a side salad. The sandwich had a generous portion of smoked beef with a coleslaw right in the sandwich and a side salad. Our friends said the beef was really tender and... More

A quaint little coffee shop in Gananoque. Visited for the first time today and was really impressed. The coffee was absolutely delicious and we enjoyed the breakfast pastry. This restaurant will definitely become a regular stop for us!
