Great coffee and neat snacks for a mid morning break. Convenient to Main Street shopping and close to a Queens Inn.

I recently visited Balzac's in Stratford with my wife. We had cappuccino and a brownie. The coffee was no doubt the best I've ever had. Strong, rich flavour that contrasted nicely with the sweet brownie. A perfect little treat. I highly recommend Balzac's and will...More

The coffee and treats were excellent! We frequent other Balzacs and this place maintains the same quality, service and prices as the others that we have visited. A 19th century feel to the inside is just a welcome bonus!

Always an excellent go to in Stratford when you're looking for a delicious jolt of caffeine or sugar fix. We enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and spacious surroundings. Never feel we're being rushed out to make room for the next guests. Would definitely recommend and return.

The coffee at our B&B was not great so this was an essential first stop. We had intended to try a local roaster, but we parked right outside this branch of a Toronto favourite.

Balzac’s is exactly what a good coffee house should be. It serves fantastic coffee, offers delicious pastries and is friendly and comfortable. There are always mostly “locals” there which I take to be a good sign. They offer a very good selection of espresso based...More
