Always my go-to place for coffee in downtown Sydney. The people are wonderful, the place is so warm. There are books and they also have toys for kids to play with so you can sit down and drink a hot cup of coffee.

Doktor Luke's has the best Coffee on Cape Breton Island. Not to mention the snacks and treats, the service and the location. I love everything about this place. Every visit leaves me well caffeinated and satisfied.
