We always stop here when we ride the Mineral Belt Bike Trail. Very comfy vibe at seating indoors or out front. Good selection of teas. Also breakfast burritos, cakes, cookies, snacks and sandwiches. Very friendly staff.

Had coffee several times during my stay, good variety and you can purchase it to take home. Had great looking bakery goods I didn't try any though.
