I always stop here when ever I am in Kingston. The assortment of coffee, tea, and speciality drinks is great. Great spot for lunch too.

My second visit. First time was not impressive but decided to go back. Again, bland soup, bland sandwich. Only flavor in the ham panini was the overload of dill pickles. Strange combination of flavors in the tomato, vegetable and broccoli soup. Just a lot of money for the quality of good. Didn't try dessert.

I typically don't order breakfast out much (although my sweetie prefers breakfast over lunch). This place is great! Quality, fresh, ingredients and good service. I had the Power Oatmeal (cinnamon oatmeal, apples,... More

What a great spot in the heart of the Annapolis Valley. Wonderful coffee and snack, really yummy breakfast items (all day!), and delicious lunch options. The service is always excellent -- prompt and friendly. We are so lucky to have this great little restaurant in our town.

We had the opportunity to stop in and have lunch on our way touring around the Annapolis Valley. We are two Prairie gals who happened to be down East for the first time and what a gem of a find!

Went 2 times within a week for having breakfast. The first time I had fabulous waffles and the second time eggs Benedict and everything was very good. The coffee is always fresh and brewed like you want. Prices are very good too. I'll go back for sure

Stopped in for a coffee and snack - it wasn't bad but rather prices I felt. They have expanded now and serve breakfast which I haven't tried yet. I will probably give them another try someday as the coffee was good.
