Our team has become a family and together we care about making our guests feel at home. Come hang with us 7 days a week! Enjoy the space, the food + drink, and great conversation.  

Everything we do is guided by three principles that inform our values of kindness, learning, openness, and adaptability.


    Our space is your space. Community starts with our team and the investment in their wellbeing through training, a meaningful compensation package, and deliberate work-life balance. It is then extended to our relationship with suppliers and guests.


    Reducing waste, advocating for change, buying local, choosing smart packaging – we are at the tail end of a larger/broken system which simply requires unwavering advocacy and constant change management. We stand behind systematic change.


    Our goal is to create consistently exceptional experiences at every visit. Good quality lasts. It lingers like the flavour of an amazing cup of coffee, or the distinct taste of a salad dressing perfected by experimentation and collaboration.

Our Philosophy

We are a team oriented business, delivering a unique customer experience through quality food + drink all made in house, while honouring sustainability in our practices. We are constantly adapting to the changing environment, responding to customer needs one learning opportunity at a time. We do our best to source the finest ingredients from local farmers and businesses when possible and we are especially grateful to be an integral part of Kingston’s academic and arts community.
