Nice little spot

Enjoyed a little snack prior to attending a wedding. Food was delicious! It was a bit crowded, but worth the time we spend waiting in line.

OMG they have the best cookies I have ever tasted here! Not for the diet minded but cookies were never intended for that. The cafe is adorable and the staff lovely.

Though I thoroughly enjoyed my lobster rolls for lunch, I am still dreaming about the cookies! Bothering the crazy and the crazy Christmas version! I also enjoyed sitting in the more quaint café side with the pretty view!

Nice little cafe, lunch is good here too. I've been here a couple times with my mom and friends and my partner. It's right down town Port Hope. You shouldn't leave Port Hope without a cookie! Deeeelish!

Best place to get coffee in town as well as sweet treat. They also have lunch specials available which are rich in flavor and delicious. I always meet for meetings here with clients or to catch up with friends. And if you haven't already, you must try the crazy cookie!

Quick stop off in Port Hope for breakfast and found our way to Dreamers Cafe. What a delightful find. Great attentive service, amazing breakfast, lovely decor...as if we had somehow found ourselves in a Parisienne Cafe. Apparently home of the famous "Crazy Cookie" which of course we grabbed a dozen for the road. We will be back for more cookies... More

we attempted to order breakfast in this cafe. however, the person who cooks was not available, and the person serving was not certified to prepare cooked food; only to serve coffee and pastries. they will miss out on a lot of business with this plan.

4 of us went to Port Hope from Toronto to see Singing in the Rain at the Capitol Theatre (great production, BTW) and stopped at Dreamer's for lunch before the show. We had read about the famous cookies and thought for sure we would take home at least a dozen. What a horrible disappointment! First the service was soooo slow... More

Good choice of sweets, from cookies to cake. Light meals okay. But most of the time it is self-serve, as you line up at a cramped counter waiting for often surly service, especially from some of the pimple-faced teens.
