great food and coffee; sometimes a little chaotic

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... read more

We were keen to try Twiggs now that Starbucks has closed. Disappointed to find find it had dirty, littered floors, offhand staff and slow service. Sandwiches fair. I tried the Peruvian dark roast which was no more than OK. Clean washrooms. Internet available. Maybe we caught them on a bad day and will try again.

I was in on March 4, I'm not from the area but stopped in on my way back to Ottawa while on a band trip, the best coffee shop I've ever been to! The staff is sooooo friendly and helpful. There wasn't name tags but there is a girl in white top who took my order & all I can... More

Next time you're thinking of spending $7 on a fancy cup of coffee, try Twiggs instead. Better quality product at a better price, and it's local! Pizzas at the McKeown location are also fantastic.

This is a North Bay specialty. The coffee is great, and the menu items are really attractive and reasonably priced. We enjoyed smoked salmon on a bagel, which was excellent. There are specialty coffees, all organic fair trade.....however I usually go for the dark roast. We travel to North Bay several times a year, and always make sure we stop... More

We have been making this our breakfast destination when staying in North Bay. It is a different style of self serve ordering & payment then a waitress will bring your food when done & keep refilling a decent cup of coffee ~ not Tims (thank god)! We were a party of 8 during our last visit & everyone enjoyed their... More

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

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
