Competition for Balzac's?

This is a pleasant cafe on the market square. The coffee I had was very good; so was the savoury scone I had with it. The choice of baked goods was not as great as at Balzac's, but the coffee was every bit as good. Very convenient for people looking for a coffee and a pastry before or after a... read more

I needed to cut dairy from my diet, and the americano is so smooth, with a creamy texture, I no longer need milk/cream. The staff welcome questions about the beans, the farm they come from and how it all works. Don't get me started on the savoury scones...

Among the many coffee houses in Stratford, it's hard to choose one as the best. However, I would put Revel Caffée at or near the top. It's relaxed, the owner takes the time to speak with customers, there's a small book shelf stocked with books and local newspapers, and at the back a patio. Tables at the front window give... More

This is the best coffee shop in Stratford! The attention payed to the quality of coffee and the skill of the baristas is outstanding. And the in-house pastry chef is creative, using imagination and skill to create wonderful delicacies!

Delicious coffee in a community setting. Great pasties baked on site. Wonderful gathering place for friends and family. We always get out the Scrabble game from their game table and enjoy a little family competition while we savor our lattes and croissants.

Revel Caffe is a very pleasant independent coffee shop! The coffee is great and the back patio is a lovely place to sit and enjoy one of their amazing pastries. This is a relaxing place to drink coffee with the locals while in town seeing plays.

We met up with my wife's cousin and this was the place he recommended. It did not disappoint. It was ideal for our mini reunion as the cafe has a huge community table which would seat at least 12 people. Food looks good and coffee was very satisfactory. I had a hot chocolate, which was very tasty.

I own a cafe in London Ontario, and like to drink lots of different types of coffee when I am out of town, but more importantly, I enjoy the suggestions of my peers in selecting and supporting local business. I visited Revel when I was passing through Stratford last Sunday as I had heard only good things about it. Unfortunately,... More

Revel makes an excellent cold-pressed ice coffee. It was by far the best coffee we had during our stay in Stratford.
