We’re part of The Theatre Centre, but we are also our own thing. A workspace, a coffee shop, a bar, a performance space, a gathering place. Coffee, cocktails, delicious treats, and free wifi—spend an hour or the whole day. This place is for you.


Monday – Friday 8:30am-6pm

Saturdays – 9am-6pm

Sundays – 10am-6pm

On performances nights we are often open late!

sweet and savoury treats

A rotating menu of scones, cookies, and cakes baked daily in our kitchen by our Baker In Residence Akash Swar!

beer, wine, and cocktails

A great roster of local beer and wine from the Niagara region. We’ve also got a full shelf of booze and craft cocktails.

specialty coffee and tea

Superbar Rufino espresso with nutty notes and a dark chocolate finish, a selection of single origin beans from Classic Gourmet Coffee, and premium specialty loose leaf teas from Sloane Tea.

The café/bar is a wonderful space to host many kinds of events from book launches to comedy nights, birthdays, karaoke parties, meetings, and more.  If you have questions, check out our handy FAQ. If you’re interested in renting the café, please fill out this rental form and we’ll get back to you. We look forward to hosting your next event! 


Our menu changes on the regular, but we almost always have some type of cookie, loaf, square, sandwich, scones (if you get here early enough) and we always have all the drinks.
