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.

We like the coffee and the teas, only this particular location has annoying waitresses. Maybe they could learn from Starbucks how to give good service.

We have been Balzac's fans since they opened. Purchased beans which the staff ground to perfection. Nice spot for quick snacks and great coffee.

Met a friend for coffee. Enjoyed lattes and an iced coffee. All were excellent. They appeared to have quite a lot of food on offer for a breakfast or snack. Prices were similar to those in Toronto....ie not small town cheap!

Never understood the hype. The coffee is good, but not double the price of other coffee shops. Not of the desserts or food are made in house as I've seen the delivery of bus bins come in on occasional mornings. Great place to sit and...More
