Unlike speedy in-and-out coffee shops, cafés indulge fantasies of sneaking off through misty European streets paved with pain au chocolat and lined with biscotti parking metres. Indulge in savoury streetside fare with today’s Groupon to Heart of the Hammer Café on King Street E. Heart of the Hammer is a cozy, neighbourhood café serving a seasonal menu of tea, coffee, gourmet sweets, midday munchies, craft beer, and wine. Diners can cozy up to a fan favourite crepe while admiring the local art adorning the walls. Live music turns Thursdays into a midweek music box and vinyl makes a fashionably late appearance on Fridays at 8 pm. Additionally, once a month the local gaming community gathers for Games Club, when deer and moose drink free.
- It is difficult to articulate the precise charm of the café primarily because it involves an engagement with something genuine and unique. In a world dominated by contrived, mass-produced, and consistently boring retail environments, the sincerity of the café is disarming and refreshing. – Julie Gordon, H Mag
- The staff are extremely friendly, they are very patient when you come in with children. – Lubbs, Restaurantica
