My granddaughter Sofie was three years old when Espresso Post opened its doors in Downtown Collingwood and started to win awards, support community endeavors and present patrons with tasty food and drinks.
Today, Sofie is 18 and I asked her where she would like to go for lunch; smoothing the way by promising her that grandpa and grandma would treat her to lunch.
“Espresso Post,” said Sofie without hesitation and added “you will like their cauliflower wraps”. She noted that cauliflower is good for you.
Cauliflower. It all sounded too healthy for this grandpa who likes his onion rings. However, I have been a customer at Espresso Post from time to time and know that they have some pleasing choices on their menu.
We got there, my wife Nancy and Sofie and I and in quick order we had our coffees, an iced drink for Sofie and cauliflower wraps for Nancy and me. The sandwiches were delicious. Our total invoice for the three of us was $35.00. There might be less-expensive places at which to have lunch, but I'm betting that cauliflower wraps are healthier than some of the other food choices in town.
As we ate, there were younger patrons and older patrons at tables near us. Also, a steady procession of patrons coming and going with take-outs. Mark, who was serving behind the counter, seemed to know almost everybody by name and the atmosphere was welcoming and jovial.
I watched as a lot of very healthy-looking patrons, who had left bicycles by this restaurant's outdoor patio, came and got their orders.
Espresso Post celebrates 15 years in Downtown Collingwood. In an extremely-competitive restaurant and coffee-shop environment, such as Collingwood's, that longevity is a reflection of customer happiness and a job well done by Mark and staff. That's something to applaud.
Anytime Sofie wants to go back there, I'm in....and I'll gladly order that cauliflower wrap again.
In the meantime, Espresso Post will continue to serve patrons with tasty food and coffee, support community endeavors and win awards.
