We went to this coffee shop numerous times while we were on vacation in Collingwood and really enjoyed it. The atmosphere is pleasant and so was the staff. We also had breakfast the last day we were in town and enjoyed the food too not just the coffee.

Great place to meet friends and sip a cup of bold Java. The owners are friendly and the staff has their busy times but remains calm. Fun times.

It is nice to go into a cafe that has an relaxing, warm atmosphere. it is unlike other local cafe, this one certainly has international feel and flavour in the coffee as well as the ambience. the size of the place is quite large and you can hide in the back if you want to work with free wifi.

We have stopped in for our coffee and pick up a muffin for our drive. Hope to have time to sit and enjoy the nice atmosphere sometime. They have an outdoor seating area and on nice days they open a garage door and you can sit indoors and feel like you are outside. The coffee has been good each time... More

My husband and I were in Collingwood for the weekend and found this nice coffee house. We thought the service was EXCELLENT. It was friendly and attentive. We had a small breakfast there which included a grill cheese with either chips or carrot sticks. Prices were very reasonable and they had really good fresh coffee and a great selection of... More

We were here twice this week. The décor and atmosphere were nice actually but their coffee was just ok. I ordered a decaf latte and it was SUPER strong. Honey had the vanilla latte and it was better. At least they didn't use those awful Monin syrups (they give a bitter aftertaste). Service was good. Didn't really expect much for... More

Good coffee, nice place. A peaceful spot in a busy area. If you like a good cup of coffee & nice environment to enjoy it, this is a good choice

Second time we have been to this place in Collingwood. Coffee has been great each time. Went with my Mother and we each had a coffee and cake. Staff were friendly and went the extra km to be sure we had all we needed.

A group of women gathered here and had a birthday get-together. Because it was midweek, we could ask for tables to be moved, in order for everyone to be seated with each other, and order accommodations were also made. The ambience and choices in the small venue were all-round appealing, though I can't comment on their coffee. Parking isn't too... More

Freshly roasted and brewed Zimbabwean coffee, freshly baked muffins, scones and sausage rolls! That is what makes this coffee house a unique find in the near northern region of Ontario. Relaxing atmosphere makes it the go to place for locals and visitors alike. No more Tim H's for me!
