Great place to drop in for a coffee an muffin. Their own coffee blend...great. Service is very friendly , can be a little slow, but that's Ok. Life in Collingwood is a lot slower than a big city, Tsang God.

In addition to the many choices of coffee and teas, Ashanti has wonderful baking, wraps, sandwiches and a daily soup. If you are fortunate enough to be there on a day that they have the Thai Curry Chicken soup - try it! Fantastic! I can see where on review thought it was not as cozy as the Thornbury site -... More

Wonderful atmosphere, great drinks and pastries. We always stop by when we're making our way home from a trip in Blue Mountain. Today we had a cinnamon raisin muffin and lemon square. For drinks, chai latte (Ashanti makes lovely ones), an espresso, and a tea. Definitely a must!

This restaurant is much bigger than Thornburg which makes it feel less warm and welcoming. I had a chai latte which was good but almost tepid. It feels like you are sitting in a warehouse. They have all the space - needs comfier chairs and a fireplace. It was so cool in there I did not take my jacket off.... More

The atmosphere is excellent. The coffee is fresh. Great food if you need a treat! Do some shopping in Thornbury when you're done.

Took my daughter for a visit - being a snow day and all - she really likes the 'vibe' of the coffee culture. She has been with me to most everywhere in town, so I thought I would get her perspective too. Wasn't too busy given the weather outside, but we were greeted with a smile, and very pleasant service... More

Delicious light lunches plus coffee direct from the owners plantation in Africa - what a combination! It doesn't get any better than that!
