Urban oasis in popular shopping centre
Escape the hustle and bustle of the busy big-box centre, with a visit to the Coffee Patch. At this welcoming café, you’ll discover an urban oasis. Calming classical music is always playing at the Patch, which features relaxing blue tones, pale wood furnishings and lots of live plants and flowers. Visitors may opt to sit on a window stool and watch the action outside, or tuck away on the raised level, which offers more privacy. Art by local talent offers an interesting distraction, as do the many newspapers and magazines that are available for customers.
Classic café fare
Whether you’re in the mood for a sweet treat like a cherry turnover, or a full breakfast or lunch, Coffee Patch has an extensive menu of choices. In the morning, the Patch counter is busy with orders for its signature breakfast sandwiches and melts. Other rise and shine options include full breakfast platters and healthy muffins perfect for those on the go. At lunchtime, the menu expands with an excellent collection of deli sandwiches, paninis and salads, which are all made fresh to order and go great with the soup of the day. If you’re in the mood for something more substantial, you can choose from specialty chicken dishes, like cordon blue and teriyaki stir-fry. There are also great daily specials to keep things interesting for the many regular customers from the nearby businesses.
Coffees and teas sure to please
From the coffee of the hour to espresso con panna, the Coffee Patch offers a wide range of java options. Specialty coffees include the mocha whip and macchiato, while there are always a few drip coffees on the go. There’s also an extensive selection of teas ranging from herb and fruit varieties to matcha and bubble tea. In the summer, you may want to try a Tea Wave fruit tea smoothy, iced coffee or bubble tea and enjoy it on the sidewalk patio.
