Downtown Burlington has a lot of really great spots get a good cup of coffee. If you’re thinking of spending an afternoon looking at the shops or just coming for a nice walk, you’ll want to take a break and warm up. I chose 4 of my favourite spots, you may have heard of them, let me know if you have.
Tamp Coffee Co.
There are two locations downtown, 480 Brant Street and 2049 Pine St Unit 65. Both locations aren’t far away from each other, so if one is too busy just walk a few blocks and try your luck at the next one. And both offer a wonderful menu of locally roasted coffee, tea, espresso, breakfast and baked goods. The atmosphere at both locations is lovely and welcoming for the whole family.
Kelly’s Bake Shoppe
If you’re gluten free or vegan this is the coffee shop for you. Kelly’s is run by a mother and daughter team and they have written a best selling cookbook that includes over 100 recipes for vegan treats. The menu at Kelly’s includes cupcakes, browines, muffins, so much more. All baked goods are made fresh in small batches on site. And of course they have coffee, hot chocolate and more. This is a very popular place and people come from all over the GTA to indulge in the amazing gluten free vegan sweets.
Located at 414 Locust Street, this is a wonderful little Italian coffee shop and restaurant. This is a world class bakery comparable to those found in Rome and New York City. In the summer Pane Fresco offers authentic gelato that you can enjoy on the patio. Their menu includes breakfast, baked goods, salads, soups and pizzas. If you’re downtown Burlington and need a place to grab a bite to eat and a caffeine fix, check out Pane Fresco, you won’t regret it.
Tucked right near Spencer Smith Park, located at 390 Brant St you’ll find Coffee Culture. They have a small patio, where you can sit and watch the world go by on comfy chairs and couches. And they have a great menu with an all day breakfast, wraps, sandwiches, coffee, tea, espresso, baked goods and free wifi. They also have plasma TVs so you can enjoy your espresso and catch the game.
