This cozy, independent coffee shop pays particular attention to crafting quality coffee drinks. The owners are friendly and make you feel right at home, and the unique brunch menu was delicious and affordable. Everything about this place was delightful! I'll definitely be coming back!

Very small, tight seating areas. Good waffle breakfast choices, but no juice or beverages other than teas or coffees. Not a relaxing breakfast spot. Wouldn't rush back.

After several times of eating there, I have to write this review! This is the dirtiest restaurant I have ever eaten in. Hair in food! Filthy high chair and look around at the heating ducts stuff growing out of it! The staff is oblivious to the mess, even after several complaints. Not enough seating. Great coffee but you can get...

Even though they are known locally for their waffles, they should be known more so for their Flat Whites. They are spectacular. Milk is microfoam'd appropriately, espresso pulled perfect, size and temperature is bang on ... it's delicious! I've been several times now, and although without great parking and limited seating, if I'm in the area I try to sneak... More

I could have stayed in there all day and ordered every item on the menu. That is, the food and tea. I don't drink coffee so I will take the word of my two friends that the coffee was outstanding. I had my choice of several blends of iced tea and I picked English Breakfast sweetened. I did have to... More

The Cannon has a great community feel and is never empty! I stop in there whenever I am in that part of town and am sure to get a latte - best lattes around. Food is made fresh on site and they have gluten free options. The bacon waffle with hot maple syrup is absolutely delicious. They also have a... More

Wonderful stop for coffee, and waffle sandwich. Places substitutes waffles from bread on sandwiches and they are delicious. Tourist or local this is a place to stop and grab a cup and a bite
