The service I received at this place was not amazing. I didn’t find that staffer that served me treated me with the level of decency that comes with practicing good customer service. They didn’t smile and honestly did not seem to have a good attitude....This individual seemed irritated that I was there, and shoved my drink towards me in an aggressive manner. However, the treatment from this staffer didn’t seem to other patrons and regular who passed by the store throughout the day interestingly enough…they were friendly and even laughing with them. As a visible minority, I have to wonder whether or not that played a role in how I was treated. Not to call anyone racist but hey…can’t rule it out. A first world problem I experienced pertains to the internet access in this establishment. While I understand that internet access isn’t the responsibility of any business owner, the situation I experienced felt a little off. I work remotely, and I was informed that internet access was by donation (an unspecified amount mind you) which I was fine with. And then came the afternoon when my VPN informed me that it couldn’t activate due to the network I had connected to was not granting me internet access, and I ought to log onto a browser to see if I needed to view a login page for the internet. I go on Google, and lo and behold…I end up on an Eero page that says that my “device’s internet access has been paused”. Meaning that that the network was still on and providing internet access…just not to me 🤷‍♀️. Ended up hotspotting from my mobile device and finished my workday. The only communication from the store to me came as I was leaving, when the staffer from the beginning of my day informed me that "We don't leave the internet on all day if it's not busy like, this isn't just a place you can come and use the wifi at all day long. You should just go to the library next time.”. This is fair—except for the fact that the network still worked fine on my phone…so it wasn’t off—it was deliberately turned off for my computer. Which is there right to do so, but the polite thing to do would have been to inform me of that at any point during my visit there so I could have planned accordingly. I think it was extremely disingenuous of the staffer to say internet was donation only and then deliberately turn my access off and say that the internet was turned off when it clearly wasn’t. I would actually say it was dishonest. Again—the internet thing is a first world issue. I give this a 3/5 because the coffee and pastries are decent….but poor customer experience can only take this so far.More

Freshly ground coffee and friendly staff make this coffee shop a joy to visit. The ice caps are terrific and if you love chocolate try the double chocolate frappe.

Everything was good. The staff, the coffee, fresh toasted bagels, excellent bran muffins. Spacious tables. We had filtered coffee, not espresso, hot and fresh, choice of medium or darker roast.

We visited Manitoulin Island for the first time today as a point of interest on a cross Canada trek. When we searched TripAdvisor for coffee & tea on the island Manitoulin Espresso Bar didn't come up, however we noticed it as we drove by and...decided to give it a try. Probably best espresso we've had this whole trip. And some delicious goodies as well.More

This cafe serves excellent cappuccinos, nicer than those made by some major chains I could mention. The service was friendly and prompt and they have some nice desserts too. Highly recommended.

This will become part of our yearly roadtrip to Manitoulin. Delish coffee with lots of choices and the Date Square - I am a total fan. My husband had the brownie - we will be driving back just for that :) The owners were so...kind to both the tourists and the locals. We felt so welcome.More

Service is a little slow, but definitely the best cup of coffee on the island! The frozen yogurt is good too. Don't expect to stay here all day on free WiFi though, as it'll cost you $2. Guess it's hard to make ends meet selling...fancy coffee on Manitoulin!More

We come up to Manitoulin Island every year and stop by here. I'm a bit of a coffee connoisseur and this Sumatra is fantastic and always consistently good. Not sure if it the water they use or the coffee beans - but I love it....Pastrys are nice as well plus you get get internet access -a bonus! We'll be back.More
