Definitely worth a try

I've been a handful of times with friends and family and I've never been dissapointed. Yes, their prices are steep but what decent cafe's isn't these days. Warm, inviting atmosphere in the summer and winter.

I get coffee here all the time, and we purchase the beans to brew at home. Always friendly service, and the food is good too. I personally love the spinach and egg breakfast wrap with salsa.

It's a good location, but prices high and not too many places to sit. Went between Boxing Day and New Years with family, and service was not the best. It was busy, but staff wasn't friendly or helpful, and the seating areas were all full. Perhaps just a busy, and off time for them, but was disappointed for the price... More

Cute little coffee shop with lots of beverage, pastry and sandwich options. We spent $20 for 2 drinks, a muffin and a breakfast croissant but they were yummy.

Ashanti has upped the game for cafes in Collingwood with amazing coffee, specialty coffee drinks and amazing baked goods. The sandwiches are wholesome and taste great. Lots of room and wifi to spread out and get work done. Great to meet friends or have business meetings.

I like the atmosphere but I want good coffee in a coffee shop and Ashanti doesn't have it. Very bland, weak coffee. That's a deal breaker for me.
