    Great coffee and yummy baked goods (even some vegan ones). Excellent place to hang out and play a board game or read a book from their own library!

    Take home a jar of their Neat Pitch Black coffee beans. Makes pure awesomeness in a cup every time :)

    Quirky decor, great food and specialty drinks (especially the ice teas!), friendly owner, awesome community events and live shows, and board games. Hands down the best coffee shop in Ottawa.
