Better Latte Than Never: Five Unique Coffee Shop Experiences to Enjoy In Amherstburg

Amherstburg is a community that loves its coffee! Here are five unique spots to enjoy a cup of joe.

Downtown Espresso


Downtown Espresso – found (not surprisingly) downtown – hosts a range of hot beverages, but its uniqueness is steeped in the residents that make this spot their hang out; it would be unlikely not to hear stories from a regular about why he or she loves their Town. This diner style cafe is highly regarded for its quality traditional espresso, lattes, and cappuccinos, often made by the owner to ensure your coffee is prepared just as you like! If you have little ones in tow, you will appreciate the cafe’s designated area to accommodate little ones.

In addition to the handcrafted beverages and variety of quick bites, Downtown Espresso is celebrated for its summer menu’s coolest addition: gelato. Best enjoyed in a cone, a cup, or a milkshake, this creamy treat is just one of many ways to make your visit to this cafe a memorable one.

Caffeine and Co. is a newer bean on the block offering the type of specialty coffee one can expect to see in a barista style coffee house. If you would like to pair your coffee with a spirited delight – no problem. This coffee house is licensed!

Food fare includes breakfast and a variety of sandwiches, soups, and salads, but first you’ll have to try to overlook the scrumptious cakes, cookies, and baked goods. Competing with the eye-catching desserts is the super glamorous decor. From white marble throughout to the gold chairs and elegantly appointed accents, this place will make you believe you’ve time traveled to New York from Amherstburg’s waterfront.
