Due to a lack of available help throughout Ottawa we find it necessary
to cut back on the number of hours we are open each week. Therefore as of September 20th we will be closed each Monday until the situation is resolved.
We opened our first small store on Kilborn Ave. about 11 years ago and then moved to our present location on Arch St. about 5 years ago. Throughout we have had the opportunity to meet hundreds of the nicest and most interesting customers. We thank you.
We serve coffee from two award-winning local roasters: Francesco's and Happy Goat
Espresso is a full-flavored, concentrated form of coffee that is served in "shots." It is made by forcing pressurized, hot water through very finely ground coffee beans. The process is called "pulling a shot."
The full flavor of espresso makes it the ideal base for mixing a variety of coffee drinks. Many are simple variations of one of the following all of which begin with a shot or two of espresso:
Cafe Latte - This is a tall steamed milk drink with a double shot of espresso. They are often flavored with syrups.
Cappuccino - This is a short steamed or frothed milk drink with a single shot of espresso.
Caffe Americano - This involves a shot of espresso topped with hot water to fill a 6- ounce cup. It's a nice alternative to drip coffee when you desire a tall drink but still want a rich flavor.
Re Eye - This is the ultimate caffeine jolt. The drink is a shot of espresso on top of a cup of regular coffee.
