We love the bagels from Georgestown Bakery in St. John’s. Cheap, delicious, and (if you’re there early enough) still hot from the oven. The bright purple bakery is centrally located in our neighbourhood, and it’s as close to homemade as we’re going to get!
So it’s no surprise that we have been eagerly anticipating the opening of Georgestown Cafe and Bookshelf, just across the street from the bakery. Serving Just Us! coffee and of course, their own bagels and croissants, they also collected almost 200 books which adorn bookshelves in a reading nook, for a ‘take a book, leave a book’ sharing system. Perfection.
The drinks are reasonably priced ($2.25 for a cafe au lait!) and our cinnamon blueberry mini tart was delish. The cheerful staff and brightly lit space perfect for studying or reading will definitely make this spot our new go to.
Head on up to Georgestown, meet the baristas, design your own sandwich (and have it with soup, it smelled amazing), and have an extra hot coffee. It’s so adorable, you won’t want to leave.
