Bar
“Very hip and trendy....if you can find it! It's down a narrow alley way next to "Metra Fashion House" and Eddie Bush Arean. Excellent coffee and whisky bar with light snacks, kids welcome!”

Café
“They make fabulous stone-oven pizzas, and have fresh coffee, pastries, bagels and croissants. The model is 'honour system' - there is no cashier. You make your selections (or order your pizza) and then stuff money in a box (like depositing fare on a bus)! They won't answer the phone - you need to walk in to order. But it is worth it - an iconic presence that could only work in a community like this one.”

Cafe
“Balzac's Coffee (149 Ontario Street) is a popular chain that has carved out a very comfortable spot in the hearts of local Stratfordians. We personally tend to go here when we’re seeking a little more anonymity and a broader local vibe. Located right along the main shopping drag.”
