  • Really cold day...felt like some soup to warm me up so I went in....I know that they have changed ownership recently. Good chicken noodle soup - PRIMO chicken noodle as a matter of fact...since I buy it all the time. I am a little surprised that for $6 (including some pretty good bread) I got tinned soup. Guess I was kind of assuming it would be homemade. My bad.
    Might go try again...but not for soup. Service pleasant and competent. I think you can get beer here now. Meh.

  • Order: chicken noodle soup, 9 grain bread

  • I have been going to this place since highschool! Their chai lattes are literally unforgettable. I can't even drink them from anywhere else, there is no competition! The food is awesome and fresh also. But if you love a great chai latte this is the place

  • After sampling chai latte's all over downtown Guelph, I've finally found one that is simply marvelous! They add a wonderful combination of traditional and non-traditional spices and it ranks right up there with Starbucks' chai latte. This little cafe is BIG on taste, service, location and smiles.

  • Order: Chai Latte

  • After ordering, my server gave me the dessert and said she would bring out the cappuccino when it was ready, and my wrap would be out shortly. She brought out the drink a few minutes later, and I got started on some work I had with me. About ten to fifteen minutes later she came back out and asked if I had received my wrap, and I said no, I hadn't. I wasn't upset or agitated, but she walked away and five minutes later brought out my wrap. She said, "Here's your chicken wrap, and here's your refund for it for having to wait so long." She then apologized for the wait.

    I was quite surprised and delighted; I was ready to sigh and accept that, hey, these things happen. My server (and the cafe itself for letting her do so) handled the situation impeccably, and as a result I'm going to recommend them to everyone, and go back often myself.

    Very good service aside, they make a very frothy and rich cappuccino. The bun was okay-but-not-that-great, and the wrap had strong and good flavours, and had extremely fresh ingredients.

    Overall a great coffee shop, the best I've been to in the area.

  • Order: large cappuccino, chicken wrap, country bun

    Service is off and on, but I'll go back!

  • Order: Cheese Croissant, tea (sometimes hot chocolate)

  • Frequent this caffe several times a week as the light meals are affordable, nutritious, and yummy. the caffe is well maintained and clean. the owners are attentive to their customers and service is very prompt.

  • Order: free-trade coffee 3-4 times per week hot lunches several times per week are freshly made each morning and offer an appetizing variety. the sandwiches on the menu are all good, esp the breakfast bagel. the Mighty Leaf teas are well worth the price.
