In my opinion, the answer would be, Espresso Post in downtown Collingwood.

I know that sounds like an ad for them but it’s not.  It’s just the honest to goodness truth and as soon as you’ve experienced a cuppa along with a little latte art for good measure, you’ll know exactly what I mean.

Funny how life works.  Owners Mark and Christene Krause first met in a Seattle coffee house and today, they own this quaint little gem on Collingwood’s main street.  They roast their own fair-trade beans and chances are, that Barista pulling your shots has won an award or two along the way.  Let me tell you from personal experience, their product is addictive.  I’ve met people who say they’ll drive for over an hour to have a cup of coffee from Espresso Post!

The building at 137-139 Hurontario Street (which includes the neighbouring and fabulous Garden’s Nest store), was first built in 1897 by W. A. Hamilton who was Collingwood’s postmaster at the time.  It remained a post office until the completion of the new Federal Building during the Fist World War.  In 1985, the building was designated as having historical significance and in 2001, the Krauses purchased the building and began the restorations which led to a heritage award.

Today, the cafe has a unique ambiance and spirit.  In addition to the wood floors, high ceilings and uncovered architecture, you’ll find an original old mail chute on a wall by the door.  In warmer weather, there is an outdoor patio where you’re likely to meet the most interesting people and perhaps even their dogs.  The  Krauses generously showcase local artists and also participate actively in the local heritage community.
