Cafe

café/bar

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. 

hours

Monday–Friday // 8am–6pm
Saturday + Sunday // 9am–5pm
+ evenings during performances & special events

sweet and savoury treats

A rotating menu of muffins, scones, cookies, and cakes baked daily in our kitchen. We source the freshest local ingredients like eggs and butter from our friends at Aangen.

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.

menu

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.
