Lots of hot drink choices on the menu. Latte with maple syrup soooo good. Drinks are made to order and high quality. Atmosphere is warm and inviting.

This is a good, old-fashioned main street coffee shop with great coffee and good snacks. The interior hasn't changed much over the years, which is good, and it's a great place to linger. Sometimes it's a bit too popular - there have been times we've wanted to go there but there hasn't been a place to sit - but that's... More

Most times in Stratford we pop in for coffee and a treat. Both are of great quality. We sit in the front window and enjoy the locals and theatre goers walk by.

Wow I did not think anything could be better than Starbuck's, but this is! The coffee is smooth and not bitter, like Starbuck's.

It was a bit busy and crowded when I went. The interior seemed a little bit run down. That said, it was homely and cosy enough. The furniture wasn't the greatest. The chairs kinda uncomfortable. The coffees and teas were reasonable, and there were various options. (As one would expect). A reasonable average place. Reasonably priced stuff too.

The facility was nice and well groomed. Convenient location with outside seating. We had cappuccinos that were average in quality.

Had a great matcha latte that was the perfect temperature and had great flavour. The barista working seemed new but was great and very friendly.

While a bit more expensive and more glamorous that Revel in the town square, we found a service with a smile, comfortable sitting and quite a good and VERY large "cortado" we like the old store feeling and music

Stopped by for my afternoon expresso "pick me up" - tasty. I was surprised they did not sell bulk coffee because the coffee aroma was delicious
