Whilst staying in the Minden area we dropped in to the cafe for lunch and it was well worth it. Good food, service and prices. It was a lovely day and we sat on he deck and enjoyed the fall weather. The black bean soup was particularly good.

We recently stopped in at this cafe on our way to a cottage we had rented. The food was amazing as were the lattes. We had the pear and brie panini and they were delicious. The staff were also very friendly. I highly recommend a stop here if you are in the area.

We have been serving up organic coffees/teas/espresso & crispy melty grilled panini sandwiches to the highland community for over 10 years. Our heritage building has the best view in town! Our stairs are the only entrance as we are built right into a sheer rock cliff. As with all food establishments we do not allow dogs/pets due to health and... More

Had lunch numerous times here while staying in Minden. Great gazpacho and sandwiches, as well as lovely lemonade. A Bit pricy for what you get, but it was August in the Haliburton Highlands, so we expected as much.

The lady that served me lunch was great!! She made me an amazing mocha, probably better than Starbucks. Lunch was super healthy-- filling, yet light, but mainly delicious. The inside of the place looked so cute, great relaxing atmosphere. I also tried a sample cookie and if I hadn't been so full from lunch, I definitely would have bought some.... More

This is a nice spot to grab a bite to eat. The coffee is decent and there is a great selection of loose leaf teas. However, it must be geared to locals, as it is rarely open when we visit Minden. It is a real disappointment to almost expect it to be closed, even though it's a good place to... More

I had a pretty good americana and a few pastries. The place is very quaint, nice atmosphere, friendly staff. A good place for a coffee for sure. As long as you survive stairs.

The Gravity Coffee House is a little gem. The food is simple and delicious. The chili is tasty and filling. The sandwiches are made from a variety of breads (including gluten free), and the fillings are well thought out and prepared. They have excellent coffee and tea. The servers are friendly and inviting. We always walk out feeling good about... More
