“Something Different”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

TAN sells something a little different, the sandwiches, salads and desserts are all out of the ordinary but AMAZING! They offer you something completely different from the rest of Windsor. A nice change of pace. Baked, not fried. Healthy and different.

“Very good atmosphere”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

If I am asked to name some place that I can spend the whole weekend afternoon, I will definitely recommend T.A.N. They have fresh food, friendly staff and the aroma of tea.

“A Welcome Oasis”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We came across this very pleasant coffee shop quite by accident. With excellent stuffed pastries, washed down with their own very good coffee, in a comfortable, quiet setting, it made for a perfect break from a hectic day of touring

“Coffee was wonderful; bakery showcase near empty.”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

My friend and I were passing through Windsor and decided to take a break for a coffee and something sweet and decadent. How disappointed we were, on a Friday morning at 10 to find only a few muffins, oatcakes and one fruit tart as our choices! Either the spot is hopping busy or it doesn't bake onsite. We were expecting some lovely choices such as cookie, cake, cupcakes . . . Not everyone is satisfied with Tim Horton-type fare, so we hope that next time we stop by, there will be some improvement in the choice of sweets to have with coffee.
