We pick up a copy of the Weekly Telegraph here every week, and my husband and I enjoy a coffee or tea while we read. Cosy spot to stop a bit, good tea and coffee and a limited but lovely selection of housewares make this a great place to sit awhile! Haven't tried the food, but it looks good.

They have a great variety of hot drinks to choose from, but the food menu is very limited. We tried the iced tea as it was a hot day, and didn't enjoy them at all.

There is a shop there to wonder around and enjoy while you sip your drink. There are a few chairs to sit in as well. No air conditioning, which seems to be pair for the course in Lunenburg.

They may sell coffee beans but they also make good coffee. Doesn't immediately appear so from the outside but do go in.

Great lunches, great coffee and a good selection of teas. Wonderful selection of baking.

Staff are wonderfully sweet and friendly.

There are lots of goodies in the Shop worth browsing and shopping for. High end culinary items abound. A really fun store to shop at.

I wish they had more space for tables and chairs - perhaps a banquet across the window stretching along the length of the shop would work. I have been there often and really enjoy it except for the space problems. There are only 3 or 4 tables to work with. There are lots of outdoor tables and chairs if the weather co-operates.

Hope Lunenburg has this Shop on Lincoln Street for a years to come. A wonderful concept store.

Not open in the evenings which would be welcome in the summer months for tourists.

We really enjoy going into the Shop On The Corner.
They have really nice kitchen gadgets, spices, novelties and they have a liquid gold tasting bar that is well worth doing, they have lovely oils and vinegars for sale.
Their lunch special is usually only 1 item but that 1 item is really good. Their baked goods are fresh and tasty. The service good.
The coffee is not my favourite, it's locally roasted, it's just not to my taste.
