Alas, no pictures of this brand new cafe (2 weeks old when I had visited it this spring). Alas, no roast dates either but the cafe by Ontario standards, they are a notch above.
Has Hario dripper stuff for sale, Baratza grinders too. New Diedrich roaster on site. Very drinkable Daterra latte there.
Also I was very impressed by monigram.ca/blog/
(located in Cambridge, Ontario) Yep, they have a roaster on site too. Owner is clearly passionate about the business.
Attention all commercial roasters and café owners : we need to see those “roasted-on” dates!
Visited Northern Quebec last summer –visited a few cafes when we were not camping. Combination of cafe/bar is de rigueur. Two of the three cafes we visited, had bars in them.
Want a artisan crafted microbrewerey oatmeal stout with your takeaway? Grab a beer off the shelf.
We used to be a veritable wasteland here in KW ( Kitchener/Waterloo) – but it is getting better.
