Accidently stumbled upon this fantastic small cafe serving excellent fresh food and declious deserts. Owner and server are friendly and attentive to dietary requirements. One of our party had a ceasar lobster salad which had to be specially created due to a lactose problem. It was reported as delicious and showed the versatility of the staff in meeting their customers'... More

Just pop in for the cookies, they are baked fresh and fly off the cookie sheets into the hands of customers. Rich, chocolatey, soft, with just enough runny caramel in the middle. How could you not stop in and have one? Just $2...we bought 4!

We stopped in at the Dreamers Café in April 2014 for lunch. It is on the corner of the quaint main street. The owners are super friendly and the food was fresh and delicious! We had home made Quiche and Sheppard’s pie, both served with Caesar Salad. The coffee and Cappuccino was good and the crazy cookie is fabulous! It... More

I dropped into Dreamers last May while in Port Hope because of all the great cookie reviews. I walked in and right out again twice because the café did seem quite grubby. A couple of hours later I could no longer resist the urge for that cookie. I had my cookie and coffee and must admit it was a fantastic... More

We stopped to check out this lovely downtown. Stopped by Dreamers Cafe, decided on coffee and some delicious dessert! There is a large write up on each table about the origins of the soft cookie with a thumb print filled with caramel and drizzled in chocolate! Pans and pans of these huge sellers! Wonderful atmosphere, and great selection! A nice... More

I am not sure what the hype is about. This is a place that seems to have built a reputation on a single cookie. It's a good cookie - no doubt, but it takes more than a cookie to make a business. Service can be somewhat cold, the cake's are overpriced and the slice portions are tiny and the entire... More

The one thing I have to say is that they have the best cookies in the world! And I love the atmosphere of the cafe, lots of room and nicely decorated. however the other deserts always seemed a bit stale and the cappachino/lattes need improvement. The owner and employees are very nice. I would still go there on occasion. But... More

In Port Hope for work and several people told me I had to try the Crazy Cookie from Dreamers Cafe. I love to bake so of course I had to check it out. I think it is probably the best cookie I have ever eaten!!! So fresh, chocolates, caramel and absolutely no artificial taste. I think it will be a... More

We stopped in to Dreamers Cafe after dinner for dessert. The Apple pie was good, the Pumpkin pie was average but the Crazy cookies and hot chocolate were delicious. It has a cozy, homey atmosphere too...perfect around the holiday season.
