Café Brea

In an interview with the Chronicle Herald, Melita Scott—a former operations manager for a local Tim Hortons franchise—cites the overabundance of “places to go that either have great coffee but no atmosphere … or a great atmosphere and nothing else” as the driving force behind the creation of Café Brea. Determined to “capture th[e] experience” of her time in Italy, Melita knew an espresso bar would be the first thing her new shop needed. Her desire to tap into the buy-local trend and show her support for fellow Nova Scotia entrepreneurs led her to turn to Laughing Whale Coffee Roasters of Lunenburg for the coffee and espresso beans brewed within her cafe.

With her dream realized in the form of a cheery red- and yellow-hued shop, Melita and her staff can be found throughout the day filling ceramic mugs and plates—created by a potter in Tatamagouche—with steaming espresso, gluten-free treats, and organic snacks forged by an in-house baker. Tables and cozy chairs nestled throughout the café enable leisurely conversations, and guests in the outdoor seating area can continue ongoing staring contests with the sun in between bites of lunch.
