Best Cutest and Quaint little coffee shop in Moncton. Directly across the Marriott Hotel on Main Street. Clean freindly couple preparing the most delicious meals for a nickel and dime... Highly recommended for a delightful snack or morning grilled cheese with Moncton East Coast coffee....

Visiting Moncton for the Thanksgiving weekend, we woke late craving our morning coffee. Not wanting another chain that looks, feels and tastes the same always, we wandered the downtown area and discovered Café Cognito. It was well worth the search! This quaint little place has...More
