Harry Ten Shilling boasts a history as rich as its homemade desserts. The building's original identity was the Union Hotel, which served as a stopover for early pioneers. Later it would become a bootlegging operation, then an antique store, and then an art gallery. Finally, in 1977, the storied location transformed into Harry Ten Shilling Tea Room—a name that pays homage to William Shakespeare's Henry IV, Part II. During the play, characters reference a 10-shilling coin marked with the face of Henry III, who was also known as Harry. Harry Ten Shilling's traditional teatime experience bridges the gap between past and present. The café complements cups of chai and naturally flavored black tea with homemade finger sandwiches, jams, and signature scones. Cooks arrange the delicacies on fine china and supply all the proper tea fixings—milk, sugar, and splints for keeping pinkie fingers angled at precisely 45 degrees.

Carl, the owner of Beantown Coffee Co., keeps his company a small, family-run operation. But that doesn't mean he lacks grand aspirations for his product. "The coffee is 100% organic [and] fair trade," he says. "And it tastes out of this world." The beans can be found in everything the baristas whip up, from hot, dark drip coffee to milky lattes. For the caffeine-conscious, Carl recommends a cup of socially-conscious loose leaf tea or the "amazing hot chocolate," which pairs well with a pastry or even the frozen hot chocolate, if you want to mix them together and have regular chocolate.

Inside the welcoming clove-coloured caf?, baristas grind fair-trade organic beans to create a variety of drinks that spotlight the distinct flavours of the world?s best coffee-growing regions. They customize these concoctions with flavoured syrups for a touch of sweetness, or pour them over ice for a quick way to cool down on a summer?s day. New chef Natasha Frank's expansive menu features a selection of sandwiches and flatbreads, as well as appetizers such as jalapeno popper and salmon pinwheels, and vegetable soup. The caf? helps foster a sense of beauty and community by showcasing local music and artwork, including a rotating collection of oil paintings, pottery, and collages.

Despite its name, Abe's Subs and Wraps is really an eatery focused on all things sandwich. Of course they have subs, including classic style, open-faced, and melts. And the wraps come hot or cold. But the menu also boasts gyros and souvlaki, and parmesan baked pitas filled with the likes of garlic chicken or prime rip and swiss cheese.

Equipped with local fruits and ingredients, the flavour experts at Cafe Sentral craft inventive bubble teas, crepes, and waffles that sate cravings while remaining focused on health.

Cafe Sentral also aims to create a study-friendly atmosphere, equipping students with comfy seats and free WiFi as they type papers and suck up more fresh fruits than a cyclone in an orchard grove.
