“Closes at 2pm ????”
Review of The Coffee Shop

Tried to get an afternoon coffee. But the coffee shops closed at 2pm. This is the only Italian coffee shop on Tobermory and it seems to only want to open for half the day, madness.

This is a wee little shop in Little Tub Harbour that obviously shares management with The Sweet Shop. It's a decent place to get your caffeine fix, because the coffee program is actually pretty awesome. The price for the coffee is definitely mid-range, but makes sense. It's the best coffee in Tobermory- as it should be, it's kind of the only place in town that focuses on it.

Other than that, you're looking at some pretty high priced lattes and snacks for the quality. I've visited a few times for breakfast and snacks, and my feelings about the quality is a solid shrug. It's also small space, intended for quick stops, so there are only a few seats in the house.

PROS: good coffee; most obviously decent wheelchair ramp accessibility, and a bathroom sizable to accommodate; they're good to dogs (treats and water bowls available); and their Sweet Shop roots show with all the delicious packaged treats and chachkies you can buy.

CONS: their iced coffee is a pretty huge disappointment, from receptacle (a dinky plastic cup) to quality, especially for the price; the staff is alright, but are likely too bogged down to be quick and cheerful; they seem to run out of ingredients a lot as each visit warranted me choosing another item from the food menu.

I'll be back, but only because there's no other choice, really.

We counted on the coffee shop for our morning brew and it was fresh and enjoyable. The baked goods were also tasty and I really appreciated their gluten free alternatives.

Super friendly. Try the Maple muffins, if any are left. No hassles, camped out for an hour enjoying the day.
