“What a charming change”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

What a nice change from Starbucks or Second Cup! This is a nice little coffee shop on March Road in Kanata - a favorite place to stop on our way out to the cottage. For folks with children, this place is for you - but I like it too!! The sandwiches and cookies are delicious.

“Support your local business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Small local business doing the big things right. From the playroom to the great selection of breakfast sandwiches, fresh baking, and tasty coffees. This place knows its espresso.

“Espresso and Sliding Boards"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

If you're in Kanata North, Ontario, you need to visit the Sippy Cup Cafe on March and Klondike--one of the area's most unique eateries. Preston, the owner, has paired a classy boutique coffee shop with a children's playroom and done a great service to the community's young families and coffee lovers of all ages.

The coffee is locally roasted Fair Trade organic, and the baristas know what they're about and offer not only high quality beverages but exceptionally friendly, personal service. The atmosphere is always warm and upbeat, and Preston knows his customers and their needs and preferences. The food is prepared on the premises from fresh ingredients--it is inventive, tasty and nutritious. The muffins and banana bread are fabulous. If you need a good swift caffeine kick, try the "Shot in the Dark".

Preston has incorporated some innovative marketing in to the business and is very community-minded. The Sippy Cup has free WiFi, and one never feels rushed while sipping a latte and reading the paper or one of the many magazines available.

If you like great coffee, want to get away from the frenzy for a while and give your children or grandchildren a treat in a space they'll really enjoy, give the Sippy Cup Cafe a try. You'll be back--guarantee it!

“Personable service, good coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

If you are in Kanata its a good place to go for a coffee. Its a small privately owned coffee shop that has a playroom in the back, great for parents with kids. The staff are very friendly and they seem to go out of their way to make your visit an enjoyable one.

“Great sandwiches, pannini's and salads”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

We've been ordering their sandwiches for the past year or so and they are great. I havnt been to the location, just ordered in. The tuna, veggie and even the meat sandwiches (panini’s) are great. the bocconcini salad is my favourite.
