Great Neighbourhood Deli

We loved this friendly, affordable little deli/coffee shop, just up from the fancier (and much more expensive) Old Town eateries. Three big deli sandwiches (ham & cheese & 2 chicken) with beverages were $20. The barista/sandwich maker was friendly and helpful.

I went into Korky's after a mediocre dinner and a long evening at the pool with the kids. We were in an adventurous mood and tried their exotic flavor. The owner was gracious kind and patient, he created a new dessert to suit the mood I was in. He hit the nail in the head!!! Amazing service! Cute little homey... More

We stopped by this shop because we were craving an afternoon cappuccino. This was labeled a coffee shop, so we went in (there was no one else inside at the time). The clerk was very nice, but clearly she was not a trained barista as the cappuccinos tasted just a bit like warmed milk and were undesirable. I think if... More

The folks were nice, a few chairs and tables outside. Has most typical ice flavors, and it was tasty. Would be nice to have access to wifi while there. I would've ordered coffee and stayed longer then. Close to the HIE.

Their expresso are really great--DELICIOUS... More

The ice cream here is frost bitten. We ordered 4 double scoops in 4 cups and paid $20. These were the smallest scoops of ice cream I've ever, ever seen in the smallest cups ever made. Since the ice cream was so frost bitten and hard a few of the scoops were 1/2 of the tiny scooper. Even the ice... More
