Downtown Newmarket is a nice scene, and The Big Bean Cafe is right in the middle of it. The food is OK - sometimes close to inspired, sometimes fairly routine, never terrible,. It's a fun place to eat, hang with the locals, drink in the...More

This is by far my favorite breakfast spot, but one we don't get to often because it is very small and we usually don't like to wait for our coffee in the morning. But if you go midweek it is worth it! With fewer than...More

This local spot has the best, most creative breakfast around. It does get busy, but if you are willing to wait, you won't be disappointed. Some of the staff occasionally seem frazzled, but in their defense, it gets slammed on the weekends! Their dishes are...More
