The Detour Cafe on King Street in Dundas provides a wonderful ambiance and the coffee is above average. The friendly baristas and well constructed decorum gave the place a homey vibe. However, the cozy building offered more than just a good cup of coffee. I ordered "The Weekender," which contained two eggs, two pieces of toast, bacon, sausage, and sweet... More

Stopped into Detour for lunch while traveling through the area, they were running some spectacular specials and the coffee was very good. The space is small so there was a little bit of a wait during lunch hour. The server was very helpful in mentioning places we could visit while in town, it was much appreciated!

I drop into Detour quite often for a coffee and snack; have also had lunch. It is a really pleasant atmosphere - fun and funky and extremely welcoming.

I loved this place! Not only did it have awesome atmosphere but the food was outstanding. I had the veggie/goat cheese sandwich and my dad had the BLT we were very happy with both. The coffee is freshly roasted and very good. Highly recommended.

Came here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Small coffee shop atmosphere, with one row of tables across the long wooden service counter. Retro atmosphere. Fairly limited menu, that prides itself on using fresh local ingredients. Case in point, the bacon and sausages that came in the Weekender plate are made by local shops, and both very tasty. This Weekender... More

Business lunch here recently. Food is decent, if not remarkable. Some people love their coffee, but I think it's merely OK at best. Servers aren't all that welcoming in my experience, and the room is crammed and very loud at lunch time. Just my experience, I wish all Dundas businesses well.

I've become a frequent patron since we bought a house walking distance from Detour. They have the friendliest staff in town, make an EXCELLENT flat white, and have a delicious menu! Some people think the menu is too limited, but I think that's the way it should be, stick with a few exceptional items. They always have specials that are... More

Restaurant came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Service was very pleasant and prompt. Menu was limited but provided exactly what we were looking for at a price that equated to the size of serving. Great value for the money. Coffee and London Fog tea were very good. Would highly recommend and will definitely visit more often.
