Kitchener-Waterloo Ontario Coffee Shop Scene information, listings and links
Kitchener-Waterloo has a wide range of coffee shops in the city. While many are centered around the downtown/uptown business cores, there are lots of other spots to go, especially close to the college campuses. Hamilton is also home and head office of Tim Horton's, the iconic Canadian donut shop, which has a strong and loyal following in this city. That being said, Hamilton has benefitted from the proliferation of the coffee chains, including Canadian ones like Timothy's, and Second Cup, but the US ones like Starbuck's.
There are also a number of smaller community-centered coffee establishments that are more homey in nature. We're a small town with a lot of comfortable neighbourhood places to just "go for a coffee."
