This is a great, cozy little spot. I love the atmosphere and the industrial sort of design going on inside. Most of all, the coffee here is DELICIOUS. I don't drink sugar in my coffee, so I have only tried their cappuccinos, lattes and coffees, which are fantastic, but I have heard wonderful things about the Nutella latte. Service here is nothing to write home about, but the guys here are pretty consistently friendly-- I guess some of the guys here are more outgoing than others. The only downside to The Ministry of Coffee is how busy and cramped it can feel sometimes! I wish it were a little bit bigger, but I guess there isn't much that can be done about that. I think it says something about how great they are too. I will definitely be back here (probably tomorrow) and will definitely recommend it.

The physical space is a bit small (and may be difficult to navigate for anyone with mobility devices - there isn't a lot of room to turn around near the cash), but the drinks are absolutely fantastic. The menu is wide enough to please everyone without being overwhelming, and the staff are very accommodating with dietary needs and inquiries. Definitely recommend the Almond Tea Latte! They also offer 25c off if you bring your own mug.

The Ministry of Coffee has become a staple of the community. Undeniably great coffee with excellent people working there, I don't why one would consider not coming here. Always a pleasure and a nice treat.

A cute little cafe in the central of the town. We went here in January 2nd. Love the vegetarian egg sandwich and I order the cafe au lait. So so, not like the best coffee.

Great coffee with an awesome atmosphere. The music they had playing was perfect.

I am all for hipster style coffee houses and local cafes! But as my friend says, this coffee house has identity problem. It's neither a classy and luxury coffee house like Bridgehead, nor a full blown hipster coffee house! And the espressos tastes fine, but nothing extraordinary!
