James Bay Coffee and Books
James Bay Coffee and Books @ 143 Menzies
February 17, 2010
I couldn't quite figure this place at first. Is it a restaurant, a book store or a coffee shop? It seems like doesn't quite know what it is. As a result, I didn't know if I should sit in the food part or the book part. Finally settled into a small table opposite the counter. I made a mistake and ordered ordinary coffee (those Americanos are expensive) and it was OK,but nothing special. I really fear my increased coffee drinking has made me quite critical. I had one of their biscotti, and it was dry and not too good. It's a friendly place, and seemed to have a lot of regular take out trade. It has a funky homey feel. They play Scrabble here on Tuesdays, and there is always a book to read.
