This is a relatively new spot in the Bay Street Village shopping area. Its challenge is that not many people know that it is there or that there is anything going on in this stalled development. But there is actually a great deal going on and the coffee shop is just one of the nice surprises you will encounter if you drive in.
The staff are very friendly. We were there for lunch and the sandwiches are very good. Although we did not have coffee, there was a beautiful cappuccino machine ready to make your favorite coffee beverage, which will be excellent if they do it as well as they make sandwiches.
I did not notice a great selection of pastry, but it was noon, so perhaps if you are looking for a morning coffee shop, there is more available than what I saw.
Give this place a try. They accept all major credit cards and the place is very comfortable. You can also pick anything up for take-out.

Yesterday I had really good coffee with a superb almond croissant. Just what I needed at 9:00am. I find the parking easy and very pleasant service.

What a fantastic find! In under utilized complex near Wal-mart and across the trail from Evie's Spanish Point. All pastries are imported from Europe, great coffee, fantastic sandwiches on great bread. A winner! Very relaxing vibe, urban chic at it's finest. Bravo!

Service was good, very friendly and welcoming. Limited selection of bagels at this time, but they were very good. Coffee was excellent, reasonably priced.
