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.

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.

Dreamers is quite spacious - even around lunch time there seems to be seats to be had. Coffee is good and I sometimes have a cookie of piece of cake. Service could be more cheerful though.

I love café latte and this restaurant did not disappoint. Plus, the desserts make choosing an item very difficult. Great staff; beautiful restaurant.

My husband and I make the trip to port hope every two weeks and our destination is always the dreamers cafe. We get the table at the window and have our tea and crazy cookie. Do a little walk along the river and come home. A nice relaxing Sunday morning. I recommend this spot to all of my friends

This is a favourite for locals. Coffee and dessert are good, but prices are a bit high. Friendly staff and welcoming service. Décor is eclectic and interesting.

Enjoyed the great cookies and friendly service! There are lots of desserts and ice creams to choose from and it's so close to Capitol Theatre.
