Balzac's Coffee in Niagara-on-the-Lake Ontario

ANOTHER great little spot in Niagara-on-the-Lake was Balzac's Coffee.  Man this place was cozy, and it just felt right hanging out there.  THIS place in particular really reminded me of some of the nice coffee shops we visited on our trip around Lake Michigan.  The word "perfect" comes to mind when describing it.

Balzac's Coffee is a small chain in Ontario, I would assume similar to Heine Bros. in Louisville Kentucky.  Yeah, its a chain, but it is strictly associated with one specific geographic location.


This Balzac's coffee feels so springy- check out those light blue and yellow colors!  Balzac's in Niagara-on-the-Lake has a very vibrant vibe.

Balzac's has values too.  From their website-

Balzac's values are infused with everything our customers experience in our cafés. Artisanal, Sustainable, Local and Natural are the four cornerstones of our business practices. Each product is thoughtfully and diligently sourced. While we endeavour to keep an eye on efficiency and affordability, we will not take shortcuts with our quality or preparation techniques. We strive to offer 'Slow Food' prepared quickly, not 'Fast Food'.
Balzac's has been offering Fair Trade Organic coffee, sugar and cocoa since 1997 and all milk used in our beverage service is organic and locally sourced.

Pretty well put, eh?  This is such a perfect coffee shop in a perfect town.  I can't wait to visit here again!
