This coffee shop has great lattes, teas and tasty treats! Think chocolate toffee bars and brownies. I come here most Sundays and do work (or not) on my laptop. This place is busy but I have never had to wait more than a few minutes to grab a table. The people are really friendly here too. It's a really nice change change from the chain coffee shops.

Fun place to go and meet . lots of options for their over priced food. A good place for a drink, but won't recommend eating here. Parking is difficult

The place looks a bit old maybe but a warm atmosphere with a greater choice of coffees and teas.
The service is friendly and the place will remain my favorite in Kensington.

After many years as one of my favorite spots, HG seems to be slipping in character and vibe. There are lots of small repairs needed and the space suffers from general neglect. I hope that ownership cleans, repairs and returns HG to its rightful place.

Go here often while in Kensington hood. Always busy with a wonderfully eclectic mix of patrons. Lot's of tables, well spread out in a marvelously random manner. Robust menu of teas and coffee concoctions, and fine selection of lite fare for snacks or lite meals. Staff always their own eclectic mix, who really seem to be enjoying themselves. Clean but lived in, this coffee shack is a treat.
