What an amazing little place. Coffee was great and breakfast was amazing. Everything is homemade and delicious. Fast and friendly service. And you can see the ocean from the deck and the inside windows. A must if going through Inverness.

Good coffee. Great choice and milkbread pastry. Quick friendly service and a nice setup. Definitely a go to place for latte, cappuccino and London fog.

Has your banquet been re-coved or is it still filthy dirty? I really would like to go for lunch but don't want to sit on this thing.

Had a lovely lunch . Waitress was very nice ,food was good and service great. BUT hasn't anyone noticed the DIRT on the seating (banquet) against the wall? Gross. Very poor choice of material for something so well used.

We were attending a musical event close by so we ended up visiting this cafe twice. First for coffee and a snack. The coffee was some of the best we'd enjoyed on our trip. We shared a scone for a snack and it was so...More

My husband and I shared the "typical" breakfast and a Belgian waffle at Downstreet Coffee Company in Inverness, NS. The typical breakfast is two eggs, meat, hash browns and toast. We picked ham and it was three very thin slices. I'd choose bacon or sausage...More

Excellent coffee and Creative assortment of bites, with a lot of healthy options! Great selection of music. Would've rated it excellent except that the barista, possibly owner, went out of his way to be less than pleasant/communicative. Not that that mattered to us to much...More
