Last night I had a dream that someone brought me a platter of bite-size gluten-free brownies… just for me… #caitscafe ...

People of all ages host their business meetings here! #caitscafe ...

Welcome Celtic College and Festival guests! We sure have missed you! #caitscafe #celticweek #celticcollege2022 #goderichcelticfestival ...

Today we are celebrating 6 years in business!

It seemed appropriate to share a photo from our first outdoor Farmer’s Market on May 23, 2015. This humble booth is what started it all. This is the spot we started promising the community we would open up Goderich’s only cafe after the 2011 tornado had the Coffee Culture move on.

I remember telling people we’d open a cafe to put the fire under my butt to actually do it. I don’t like empty promises. Almost a year later, we were renovating the former Kulpepper’s Retail store into a full functioning cafe. It involved a lot of extra plumbing, electrical, and equipment, but alas, on July 31st, 2016, we opened our doors.

July 31st was my Stara Mama’s birthday (grandmother). Although we definitely could have used a few more days to be more fully ready, it was important for me to honour her with this new venture. She, after all, was the person who inspired my love for food.

The past 6 years have gone in a flash. We are where we are because of our incredible community (who is truly dedicated to supporting small local business); our amazing team (who work their butts off to ensure our hand-made small batch food and beverage get to your bellies), and our business community (who help spread the word and encourage small business support).

Thank you x infinity and beyond. Happy birthday to us!

Just way too cool for Saturday over here. We’re ready for you! Bring on the long-weekend! #caitscafe ...

Afternoons are all about bringing on the Green Tea power! Tea leaves contain an enzyme in them that counteracts the caffeine, which means a slow, steady, and stable release of caffeine into our system. It’s smooth sailing from here! Open all weekend long- our usual hours.

My new mantra lately has been “I eat for fuel”. Honestly, if I don’t, I simply don’t have the stamina to make it through my day. I love that I can indulge when I’m here, but can also treat my body good with an iced matcha tea, and a salad made with organic local greens, organic local eggs, local Turkey, and house-made dressing. Bring on the energy! Woo! #caitscafe ...

It’s easy to make things taste good when you load them with sugar, but it takes a higher level of skill and talent to allow natural flavours speak… and that is what Chef Spencer accomplished with this incredible Raspberry Danish. #caitscafe ...

Get your strawberry danish while you can!! Only a few days left until we switch to raspberry! 🤤 #caitscafe ...

The quintessential summer pic to announce we are open this holiday Friday from 7am -430pm. The rest of the weekend is hours per usual. We will have a special tasty treat to celebrate Canada Day. Enjoy the long weekend! #caitscafe ...

STRAWBERRY RHUBARB DANISH HAVE LANDED.

Gabrielle, Andrew and I hand-picked these strawberries from Bayfield Berry Farm on Sunday! Gotta get in that free labour while I can 😂

Thank you SO much to everyone who participated in our fundraiser for the Downie & Wenjack Fund yesterday! We raised $963.90!!!

Happy Wednesday, Beauties! #caitscafe

50% of food sales will be donated to the Downie & Wenjack Fund today! June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day. This is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. The Canadian Constitution recognizes these three groups as Aboriginal peoples, also known as Indigenous peoples.

Although these groups share many similarities, they each have their own distinct heritage, language, cultural practices and spiritual beliefs.

In cooperation with Indigenous organizations, the Government of Canada chose June 21, the summer solstice, for National Aboriginal Day, now known as National Indigenous Peoples Day. For generations, many Indigenous peoples and communities have celebrated their culture and heritage on or near this day due to the significance of the summer solstice as the longest day of the year.
...

Save the date! On Tuesday, June 21st, National Indigenous Peoples Day, we will be donating 50% of our food sales (including pre-orders and catering) to the Downie & Wenjack Fund.

The DWF aims to improve the lives of Indigenous people by building awareness, education, and connections between all Canadians through programming and events.

It provides access to education on the true history of Indigenous peoples in Canada and the legacy of Residential Schools.

Plan to stop by for breakfast, lunch, and a snack to support this cause.

Last year we raised $821.95! Let’s set a new record!

Thank you so much 🙂 #caitscafe

Digging into this carrot muffin like it’s my job… #caitscafe ...

It’s always an honour when someone asks us to cater their special event. I take this job very seriously.

On a day like today, we catered a morning-after-the-wedding breakfast. Caffeine and carbs, please.

When Spencer and I got married, 95% of our guests were from out of town, so spending time with everyone the next morning reminiscing, sipping on hot coffee, and enjoying a carb-loaded breakfast was the perfect way to thank and send off our guests.

Wishing you all a restful Sunday.
We’re open from 9-4 today :). #caitscafe
