Very friendly staff. Willing to accommodate special requests. Will be going more often now that I have moved to this beautiful little Island - the Island of Arts.

Just a fun place to meet for a coffee, chill and people watch. Had a great conversation here with a great guy. Lots of people on Internet and enjoying the summer breeze on the large patio.

I love going here first thing in the morning for breakfast. The food is always good as is the coffee. Mad Rona's is a wonderful place to sip your coffee or tea, read a book, write or visit with a friend.

If you want a quick coffee away from the hubub, Mad Ronas is the place. Outdoor sitting area is nice and the coffee is great

This is a very nice coffee shop, baking was fresh. But not a tea lovers paradise. I prefer loose tea. The tea was either tea bag or pre-brewed with sugar. Nice atmosphere - popular with locals.
