“An oasis of good coffee and sandwiches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Travelling in the near-north of Ontario can be frustrating for those who try to minimize their chain- and franchise-owned food intake. Twiggs has been an oasis of friendly service and quality food and drink for a number of years. It's worth the short detour off hwy 11 because you can sit down and enjoy espresso drinks and sandwiches and salads made right in front of you. Check it out!

“Definatly NOT a Starbucks, Twiggs actully roasts and grinds their Coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
