True North Blend Coffee
Our True North Blend is a mellow and soft blend of Latin American coffee beans with delicate nuances of soft cocoa and lightly toasted nuts. Ask for your coffee brewed on the Clover Brewer for even smoother flavour! Pair it with a slice of Banana Nut Loaf to enhance the nutty flavour of the beans.

Vegetarian - Gluten Free
Ottawa magazine says our Nanaimo Bars are the best around: A fudgy coconut chocolate almond base, delectably filled with soft custard icing and a belgium chocolate crust.
Looking for a taste of Canada? Try this red rooibos tea. It’s sweetened with (what else?) maple syrup and sprinkled with delicious maple leaf candies. Plus it’s 100% diplomatic (well, caffeine-free) and tastes great in both official languages. With green rooibos, honeybush, caramel and toffee bits to shake things up.
As the West Coast coffee scene has matured, so should Eastern Ontario's. The Hario V60 pour-over is a slow and intimate brew method that gives baristas the opportunity to educate and help customers reconnect with what it means to drink a pure and classic beverage. Enjoy a cup of java made from Guatemalan beans from Little Victories Coffee Roasters, a brand new coffee roasting company right here in Ottawa.
