We were passing through Almonte after a hike and stopped in for a snack and we were pleasantly surprised. There are lots of gluten free options and the place is much larger than we expected. Also we loved the philosophy around schoolbox to make education...More

We live near Almonte and we buy whole bean Equator Coffee at Patrice's Independent Grocer exclusively. My personal favourites are Muffurah Joe and Sweet Justice. The beans are always recently roasted which just makes your home brewed coffee far superior to anything

We attended a coffee course at Equator. Small group of 6 people. Great host. We saw the roaster, and tasted coffee from different types of brews. Definitely would recommend!

Always good coffee and it's all fair trade. The new expansion and relayout is excellent as well. One nice feature is the fireplace. Unlike Tim Hortons it actually produces heat. Food is limited to light meals and various baked goods ideal for having with coffee....More

Always a good strong real cup of coffee! Relaxing small town atmosphere with big city class! Interesting revolving display of original artwork to peruse while enjoying your coffee or tea.

Coffee is good. Sometimes it is very slow in coming. Seemed fairly expensive. Ambience is a lot of aging hipsters, with a few loners mixed in. Could be cleaner, especially around the sweetener/milk table. The waste bins are too small and overflowing. You can buy...More

The best location for coffee, traditional or extravagant in Almonte.A light breakfast of muffins, or bagels, or scones are very good, plus you can get Hummingbird chocolate bars and other local maple syrups, etc.
