We visited the farmers market in the circle while in town and dropped in here for some lunch. The service was prompt and friendly. The menu choice were wide and varied and the food was fresh and delicious. We would defiantly eat here again and recommend it others.

You'll find this coffee shop on the traffic circle downtown. It's a nice discovery. The atmosphere is quite European, not what you might expect in a northern Ontario frontier town. Enjoy a hearty breakfast and watch the locals come and go, or sit by the window and enjoy a front row seat to downtown Kap. Plus, the coffee is good.

Wow! How do you choose from such a fun , extensive menu? This place was really hopping. I am told it is a favourite spot for the locals. The food and atmosphere equal anything you would find in Southwestern Ontario.
