There are many coffee shops in Ganges but the coffee here is the best (especially if you're used to european style coffee). Lovely sweet things too plus lunch specials. Very welcoming atmosphere.

This tiny gem has friendly staff and coffee so good we filled up more than once. There's something on the little menu for almost anyone including GF & vegan options for those who need this. Don't skip out on this cup, it's well worth it!

My doppio macchiatos were marvelous as was the date bar with a hint of lemon. My husband enjoyed a fresh made croissant, pretty yummy! The staff was great and accommodating. Loved the simple light filled decor. A nice change from so many dark coffee shops one sees in the Northwest.

Love to go there and sit down with and espresso and an Island Mudpie. The inside decor has a great contrast with the heritage building exterior. My wife love to go to talia to meet her buisness clients.

A nice coffee shop to visit with friends and relax for awhile. The coffee is great and the options of preference many. There is some food available but I haven't sampled their wares. It is one of the coffee shops that's a favorite with the locals.

Great light lunch at this incredibly cute, historic building tucked away on a side street in Ganges. A local secret - good service, good food, good coffee

This Cafe is down a side street so you may not notice it easily. But make the effort to find it. Friendly staff serve you in this cozy place. The muffins are terrific! There are lots of magazines to read so make yourself at home

This is a wonderful little spot to stop for a coffee, tea and baked good. My wife loved her Mocha and I enjoyed a Chai Latte, both of which were made perfectly to request.
