While visiting Kafka’s Coffee + Tea recently, I passed by Our Town Cafe. They are a shop that’s located on the corner of Broadway and Kingsway. They serve coffees and various drinks, as well as baked goods and breakfast/lunch items. I had their Espresso Chocolate Cookie, Spinach and Blue Cheese Breakfast Scone, and Blueberry Lemon Almond Muffin.
Espresso Chocolate Cookie ($3):
The cookie was thick, soft and chewy. It had a great fragrance and mild bitterness from the espresso. There was a good amount of chocolate spread throughout.
Spinach and Blue Cheese Breakfast Scone ($6.5):
This contained cheese, tomatoes, eggs, and mayo. The scones were relatively tender and soft, with a nice savoury flavour; I did find them to be a tad dry. I quite enjoyed the filling inside, in particular the tomatoes, which lent a nice sweetness.
Blueberry Lemon Almond Muffin ($3.25):
The muffin was tender, albeit just a tad on the dry side. It had a good amount of fresh blueberries, and a wonderful fragrance from citrus. I really liked the almonds, which provided a great texture.
I quite enjoyed the food at Our Town Cafe. The staff was also friendly. Even though I haven’t tried any of their drinks, I think that this place is worth visiting for the food alone.
