Simple and Good

Pretty much everything you'd want in a coffee shop! The service was slow but, hey, I wasn't in a hurry so I didn't mind. The coffee was excellent (I had a vanilla latte) and I was happy they had ample seating so I could stay for a moment or two. The atmosphere is appropriately casual and fun, with... read more

Continues to be an attractive choice for coffee and a great sandwich. Both are made from scratch. Fresh! Outside tables a real summer treat. The Bay Algoma area is the place!

Great eclectic atmosphere and wonderful coffee. We were there for lunch and had delicious sandwiches plated with sides of pasta salad and taco chips providing many textures and flavours that nicely complimented each other. Free wifi is offered and there is also a quaint little patio at the back. Unfortunately it was too warm to sit outside the day we... More

If I lived in Thunder Bay, I would be a regular. Stopped for coffee on my way out of town. The iced latte was perfect. Friendly staff and nice ambiance.

Tasty sprout sandwiches - but the price is higher then what I would expect. Definitely a nice healthy alternative to fast food. Sneaky parking available in the back if you didn't want to park on Algoma.

We were shopping in the area and stopped in for lunch. We were not disappointed. Turkey Panini was excellent. Everything was fresh and had great flavor. Coffee was perfect. They even made a London Fog tea perfectly. Overall a great experience!

First time here, on the advice of a TBay resident....a wonderful choice to meet up for a coffee and light lunch. Five of us, including two kids...everybody happy with their meals and drinks. The room is eclectic, attractively furnished. The little patio out the back might have been nice on a sunnier day but seemed coolish and needs a little... More
