Spotted this little house when we first arrived on the island in the evening. The next day we went in but didn’t order anything. The owner invited us to go across the road to the bakery and get a pastry and to come and sit...under the umbrellas. That is service and so pleasant and laid back. Our kind of person.More

I'm not sure what coffee was being brewed, but the smell was divine. Rich flavour, very low acidity - I made mine with cream, it was good to the last drop... I forgot to take pictures! :O And the ice cream! Made by Tracey's -...so yummy! I had the Salted Caramel Toffee and Mike enjoyed the Double Chocolate!! Open on the weekends from May 2-4 weekend, then 7 days a week after highschool lets out for the summer, until back to school.More

Enjoyed a cup of ice cream on a hot day waiting for the ferry to go to Kingston. They have some classic flavors. My son enjoyed bubble gum. I had the raspberry, it was tastey on a hot day.

Watching others down their ice cream, I was tempted but it was 'espresso' I was wanting and since we were on our way home, I can have ice cream any time! The espresso was strong, fresh, and tasty! Service was great also! Our man behind...the counter was helpful and quick (knowing we needed to catch our ferry home)! Thanx again Cafe Tenango! See you next year!!!More

I love this place. This is just what Wolfe Island needs... a great little coffee shop. There is seating and umbrellas out front and free wifi. On my most recent visit I missed the ferry. I came here for a London Fog and sat out...front on my laptop catching up on emails. In the past few years I've avoided coming here based on the price point of everything. Now that there is a new owner I am a regular again. Things are just as good as they were before but instead they are not as expensive or pretentious. The new owner is very pleasant and is always smiling. Her cute little grandson sometimes likes to help out. I'm hooked on Cafe Tenango again!More

I've visited it twice but, for my taste and budget, they are not cheap. but the ambiance and quality are good in a wonderful outdoor setting while you wait for a ferry or are a new visitor to the Island. I think this little cafe...is a wonderful addition to the Main Street.More

My partner's family lives on Wolfe island and we stay with them from time to time. We were so thrilled to see this cafe open up on the island and have popped in three times including twice this month. Despite other reviews that indicate you...can get a good espresso drink at Cafe Tenango, that has yet to be our experience. Drinks have been OK, but not great. We haven't tried the icecream.More

Cafe Tenango is for those who have taken the time to learn and understand what a truly great cup of coffee is and what is involved in brewing one. Go there, get one, enjoy!

Enjoyed a delicious latte while waiting for our ferry returning home...too full to try the ice cream, although it looked incredible...looking forward to trying it next time!
