Here are some more of our favorite places in downtown Kingston, a quick walk from Trolley Stop #4 (at the Market Square) and Trolley Stop #8 (at the top of Princess St.)
The Common Market
136 Ontario St.
The Common Market has Kingston’s best espresso bar. This coffee shop offers a North Roast and a County Roast (from Prince Edward County) for your daily brew. Or if you are feeling something a little softer and sweeter, their cappuccinos are a fantastic choice.
It is a cozy café and small gourmet grocer that has been open for 6 years. Their delicious cookies, biscotti, and tarts are brought in by a local bakery called Dream Come True Kitchen.
To cool you down on a nice summer day, they also have iced drinks available for you. Most popular are their Mochas that are made with Swiss chocolate and their Matcha drink which is organic. Instagram: @commonmarket
297 Princess St.
Geneva, since 2010, has been serving delightful sweet and savory crepes to tourists and locals with fresh and creative France-inspired specialty drinks.
This place is somewhere you can fluster your taste buds. They accurately mix sweet and salty in many of their dishes, such as the “Bombay: Signature Crêpe”. Which includes chicken and apples tossed in their secret mild curry sauce.
Along with their Crêpes, their menu contains other delights. Geneva has Belgium thick waffles topped with fresh strawberries and bananas, served with just the right amount of whipped cream. Twitter: @genevacrepe
33 Brock St.
Sipps is home to a European influenced espresso drink named “The Zebra”. We suggest to pair it with a heavenly chocolate chip brownie.
This café is famous for their in-house made carrot cake (that you will beg to know the secret recipe for), and is just a couple steps away from Stop #4 on the Trolley route. Instagram: @sippscoffee
