It’s a cold morning here in Blue Mountain, which could make for a longer feeling drive home on a Sunday. It is a perfect day to stop at one of the unique and self owned coffee shops in Blue Mountain/Collingwood. We have many different coffee shops that are not your typical ‘Starbucks’ , ‘McDonalds’ or ‘Tim Hortons’. These places are one and only shops in the local area.

1)Royal Majesty Espresso Bar – Located in the heart of Blue Mountain Village right across from  Menchies. This espresso bar and bakery has its own created hot drinks, such as the S’mores Hot Chocolate. The drip coffee is to die for, especially when mixed with a dash of sugar and coconut milk .

2)Shale Rock Coffee House– Located on highway 26 beside Max Milk. This cute little coffee shop is one to talk about. Hearing nothing but good words and compliments all the time. It may be a little out of the way, but it is worth the while.

3)Ashanti Coffee– This amazing family owned coffee company is absolutely delicious. With two locations in the area, Thornbury Main Street and Collingwood First Street. Knowing the owner and family I am a little bias on how great this coffee is.


4)Espresso Post– Creating its home on Hurontario Street in Collingwood, Espresso Post is a family owned business. Husband and Wife have created a name for themselves with the amazingly brewed coffee and delicious house baked goodies. Unique flavored scones; broccoli cheddar, Lemon Lavender, Almond Chocolate. Simply mouth watering.

5)Journeys Blend– is a not-for-profit cafe that is a Ministry pf Journey Community Church. All proceeds go back into the community , especially children and youth. As well as helping children and families at risk around the world. With an amazing coffee and tea selection, this coffee shop also offers soup&salads, sandwiches,lunches, desserts and baked goods. Located across from Walmart, by Winners.
