Coffee is a beverage that has been with the human race for the last six hundred years. Throughout its history it has been used as a concentration aid, in religious ceremonies, and is enjoyed by world-wide populations. It has been developed into a household staple as well as an art form. Whether you prefer a Tim Horton’s double-double on your morning commute, a Starbucks Coconut Cascara Latte savoured with a friend or dark espresso sipped in the afternoon, coffee is universal.
Why not have your next coffee at Brantford’s Blue Dog Café where their motto is ‘Unplug Reconnect.’ They have all your favourite espresso based beverages from Americanos, to cappuccinos and all your favourite lattes. Try it hot or iced and while you’re there grab a bite to eat from their delicious menu of wraps, sandwiches, flatbreads and salads. Right now you can also pick up their holiday blend, whole roasted or ground, to take home with you!
Or maybe you’re trying to make good choices leading up to the holidays? If the standard dairy addition bothers your tummy or you’re simply looking for a more wholesome organic option stop by the Healthy Rabbit for a vegan indulgence. Focused on sourcing local wherever possible, Healthy Rabbit can help you with your pumpkin spice latte craving made with coconut milk and maple syrup. Yum!
If you like to share your coffee with a bit of culture and history make a reservation at the Exchange Café. Sip your warm cup paired with a delicious baked treat surrounded by the Bell Homestead grounds and historical pieces that will help you relax into a simpler time.
