Went into the store and couldn't get waited on. The girl on the counter kept taking peoples orders behind me. Did she think I was with someone else! Very rude not to even ask someone trying to be patient. Had to go somewhere else. Won't waste my time going back. PISSED OFF!

Balzak's has several Coffee places across the GTA, and this one in Stratford. All offer superbe Coffees, teas and variations. Baked goods are tops. This is The Stop for us when in Stratford! A must go to!

First time in a Balzac's and wasn't disappointed. Enjoyed hot apple cider and the largest ginger molasses cookie I have ever eaten, with a piece of candied ginger on top. Great place to sit and chat with good people.

For those of us who don't eat dairy, a soy latte is generally the only option available at a coffee house. But having the choice of soy, almond milk, and vanilla almond milk is a first for me. Try the vanilla almond milk latte - you won't be sorry.

Had several opportunities to visit Balzac's and enjoy their delicious hot drinks and pastry selection. The Parisian Mist with the Ginger Molasses cookie provided enough sustenance so I could continue in the shops :) And a very pleasant staff and atmospher.
