“Funky place, great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Menu is a bit limited but we found enough to eat. The nachos were weak (burnt, and skimpy toppings) but the salads (we had as entrees) saved the day. There were really, really good.

We went back the next day for specialty coffees which were also good.

We'd go back again, but not every day. Definitely worth a visit.

“Espresso Oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

After camping for two weeks I was happy and relieved to stumble upon this oasis in the espresso desert that is Atlantic Canada.

While I didn't have any of the food I did sample a number of the drinks on two separate occasions during my trip to Forillon National Park. My favourite was called "Artisan de Mer" which was basically an espresso ice-cream float. Simply delicious.

The atmosphere of this restaurant is incredible. The bohemian furniture, breathtakingly magnificent espresso machine and friendly staff made this place unforgettable. The cafe also feels really young, for the backpackers and young adventurers out there this place is definitely worth a stop if you want to meet new people or simply do some people watching. The cafe also has wifi, loads of indoor space, and a patio backing on to the main tourist street in the city.


I wish more National Parks had towns like Gaspe in their vicinity.

“pleasant café, decent light food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

I had both breakfast and a lunch at this restaurant. Good coffee, pastries for breakfast. Lunch was on the deck on a hot day. Pleasant setting with a sea breeze, though the view is marred by hydro poles and the busy intersection. Good beer, including Pit Caribou. Nachos could use more spice, shrimp salad a few more shrimp. Service friendly and prompt. Free internet.

“Great Cafe!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

My husband and I enjoy going to cafes and we found this gem while visiting Gaspe. It has a comfortable vibe and plenty of choices for seating - outside on the sidewalk patio, on the back deck overlooking the water or lots of indoor spots where you can linger over a coffee, have a chat, use the free wifi, etc. I enjoyed the cafe au lait - one of the best I've ever had. The location is at the corner of a cute little historic area with fun shops and other restaurants. Fond memories!
