“Takes on Starbucks any day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Twiggs has there own style of doing things. They have a wide, fresh, modern menu that suits everyone's flavor palates well. I have been here before and not had the freshest baked goods, but besides the odd time the food Is usually really good. I enjoy the smoothies and hot chocolate! Yumm!

Definately think Twiggs will have some competition once the Starbucks in Target opens this summer!

Only thing I can comment negatively on is the speed of there workers. Maybe they are understaffed? Who knows, but they are really slow getting drinks out.

“Definatly NOT a Starbucks, Twiggs actully roasts and grinds their Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Comparing Starbucks and Twiggs is apples and oranges. Starbucks has over priced Packaged coffee. Twiggs brings Coffee Beans, RAW, from around the world, roasts them in Store daily. Their coffee is UN-Paralleled in any Big Box Coffee Shop. For those who's taste buds have been dulled by the Plactic packaged "Sludge" TH serves they may seem too different, but to those who truly enjoy REAL coffee, come here sit down, enjoy a brew and have a fresh baked Scone or maybe a Baked Pizza, also excellent. Any for Prices, you can have dinner for 2 with coffee and Apps for well under $20, tell were else that is possible, not even at McD's.

“Delicious coffee and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

I was in North Bay for few days and the couple I was staying with brought me there. My latté was good (I really love good coffee), and I had the Smoked Salmon Bagel with cream cheese and capers, it was soooo good. I went back back few times while I was in North Bay and I loved everything I tried.

“More than coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

I only get to North Bay once or twice a year and I always make a point of visiting Twiggs. It is one of the best coffee shops that I have been to in Canada. The food is excellent at Twiggs and I always make sure to try one of their fresh homemade soups or have a wood oven cooked pizza. The specialty coffees are very good and with free wifi it is easy to linger there for an hour.
