We loved this place the minute we walked in ! We were greeted by a gentleman who offered us a delicious toasted bread & tomato snack . It was fantastic . The coffee was great, the atmosphere was cool & the people behind the counter were so friendly & kind. Would love to go back !

Great little spot for a quick & fair trade coffee before work, or a sit down lunch with some friends. I highly recommend the "Our Club" sandwich from the menu! Delicious and authentic Spanish food And unbelievable service every time. If you're downtown Peterborough you have to check this place out.

I came to meet a client for coffee but ended up staying for lunch... Came back a few days later because the service and lunch menu was unlike anything I've ever experienced. Try the special club sandwich. Of course delicious coffee too. Give it a try especially if entertaining out of towners.

Went for lunch and was blown away by the whole package. We were greeted and offered seats inside as it was quite warm out. Opted for patio which had a great shaded area. Tried a couple of samples from owner that had us hooked before we even looked at menu. Menu has something for everyone and pieces were way less... More

The coffee is not as good as what it used to be. They are not roasting their own anymore. A bad move for a coffee shop. Servers are busy running around giving people free samples or what they are making in the kitchen, they seem to stressed and it is unpleasant. I came to drink good coffee in peace. I... More

Limited menu but excellent soups, coffee and breads. Try the lentil soup with chorizo. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Relaxed atmosphere and a good meeting place for coffee or a light meal.

This is a great place to hang out downtown. The coffee is delicious and I love the puff pastry 'O"s filled with feta and spinach. They crumble all over you as you try to cram them in your mouth. Local artist show their work there and it is also fun to attend Art Openings there. In summer one can sit... More
