Went to this restaurant to use a gift card that I received for Christmas. When paying for my purchase i was advised that my card did not have a balance on it and I was asked for the receipt. Although I did get the receipt with the card I did not keep it. I assumed the card was activated when... More

Catering to wannabe coffee snobs and hipsters, the waitresses are terribly trained, the coffee is terrible but inconsistent, and is way overpriced. The hygiene is also, quite frankly, appalling. I've seen baristas just give their equipment a quick rinse, a wipe with the cloth used on the sandwich prep counter or just leave it for later if they're busy. Whatever... More

The food, coffee, and other beverages are very good to excellent, so Twiggs has much to recommend it. I like that the coffee is fair trade and organic (at least much of the time). But it is often busy, which can mean that staff are scrambling, and you just might get overlooked (at Twiggs, orders placed at the counter, bigger... More

Noting against Tim's, but sometimes you're looking for something a little more in a counter-service restaurant. Nice, low-key atmosphere, even when busy. Dine in or take out. Range of good quality baked goods, sandwiches, pizza, and sides. And excellent coffee roasted on site. Quality does cost a little more, but you don't feel gouged. Service is friendly and fast. The...

I've stopped here a few times and I love it. The soup and sandwiches are delicious and the pizza is to die for! They make the crust there and all the topping are fresh. The coffee is also good and cheaper than the chains like Tim Hortons and such. They have homemade pie and cake that is also delicious. They... More

Stopped here for lunch recently while passing through the Bay. It was busy, certainly a locals hangout. i tried the pizza, it was only $7 or $8. I thought it was for one person, this thing was huge, served on a cookie sheet, very delicious and hand made. half of it came home in a box with me. Coffee was... More

This isn't your regular Coffee shop, this place has it all and some food. Their gourmet pizzas are tasty and very reasonably priced. The down town Twiggs doesn't have the same menu (ie pizzas) and also a "better than a coffee shop", the McKeown Twiggs has a better atmosphere and menu. My only room for improvement mention is they should... More
