I love, love, love Cannon Coffee Co! It is just the type of coffee house that the east end needs. Cannon Coffee is on the corner of Ottawa and Cannon, and has a gorgeous wide angled street view from their corner window.
Opening its doors just in time for the Christmas rush, owners Anne Cumby and Cindy Stout are serving up some of the best coffees in the city using locally roasted beans from Detour, Red Hill, and (soon to be added to the roster) Speakeasy, AND they are also baking muffin tops (yeah I know how is that even possible!?) cookies, scones and other delicious sweet treats too.
When we stopped in for a mid Friday afternoon coffee the shop was successfully abuzz with nothing but people who were just really excited to drop in and check out the fresh new space and have a coffee.
Cindy and Anne are so sweet and charming, and happily chatted with Steve and I about how they put their whole space together. No doubt the ladies have been working hard to get everything set up and ready to go. It really is a true work of inspiration and dedication and they have definitely been successful in creating a unique space where you just want to sit and look out those big wide windows for hours.
The light installation is the work of Toronto designer Enoch Khuu. The table art book is a published work of photographs and artwork by the super talented Brooks Reynolds, whom I believe is a Hamilton local.
Original tiles and ghostly blue-grey hand finished pine plank floors.
This was honestly the best latte I’ve ever had (thanks Cindy!). Mine is on the right. I take it with a little swirl of honey. I swear with each sip I would sigh and say something really cliché in all seriousness like “mmmm this is so delicious I could die”, or “this is the best latte ever”.
Owners Cindy Stout and Anne Cumby.
