“Great coffee/friendly counter help”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Nice atmosphere and good coffee. It is located right downtown in Stratford, making it a great place to stop for a cup on a Sunday morning.

“A lovely cafe”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

with great coffee and snacks! Even the tea makes it worth a stop! The ambiance is lovely, with small tables and bistro-style chairs, and if the weather is nice, you can sit outdoors and people watch.

“Excellent coffee”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Nice spot, great coffee. Even got a short lesson in latte art. Better than your average 2nd Horbucks.

“Good coffee shop”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We went to this restaurant to get a breakfast bite to eat before going to lunch later. The service was prompt and friendly. The coffee was delicious and my scone tasted just the way I like it--flavorable, but not too sweet. The inside is nice but not huge, but there was also seating outside in the front and in the back. I recommend this place for good coffee and baked goods.

“Excellent”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

A trip to the western parts of Ontario, that is west of Ottawa, always calls for a trip to Balzac's. We were down for a few plays in Stratford and stopped in each day for a coffee, and a treat. The coffee is alwasy first rate, and the snacks very good. And as been commented on elsewhere, the coffee is not for the faint of heart. It is a proper cup.
