Best Cafe

Steve-O-Reno’s, 1536 Brunswick, 429-3034

Steve-O-Reno’s cafe has great coffee, but there’s more—it’s cozy, with good caffeinated vibes going on. Steve Armbruster has expanded the menu in recent years to include some pretty decent internationally-flavoured fare, but his strength is in his sandwiches—fresh, generously filled and well priced. A cute couple at a window table tells me they just love the service and being away from the “generic cookie cutter cafe environment.”
