Must-Visit Coffee Shops and Bakeries in Orillia
Orillia is known for their slow-paced yet active lifestyle. A small and inviting town nestled just off of Lake Simcoe demands the best coffee and pastries. Whether you’re exploring the city, or have lived in Orillia for years and looking to try something different, we’ve put together a list of three favorite coffee shops in downtown Orillia.
Mark IV Brothers
This quaint family owned coffee shop and convenience store is located in the heart of West Side Orillia. This coffee shop is known for their relaxed atmosphere, freshly brewed coffee, and fantastic music. This hidden gem can be found off the beaten path, but is a must see when passing through or just looking to unwind with some friends.
Best Place to Sip & Shop
Step back in time and enjoy this delightful cafe and bakery. Mariposa describes their atmosphere as “turn of the century, just like taking a step back in time”. This bakery also offers a fudge & candy shop, a home decorating store, and a shop for handmade soaps & candles. Grab a hot cup of tea, or order a custom cake of your choosing. The perfect place to stop in on a lazy Sunday morning.
The Donut Line
Best Baked Goods
Sometimes you just want a fresh homemade donut. The Donut Line is your go-to for fresh baked goods that are made daily in-house. This little coffee shop has rave reviews on TripAdvisor, Google, and Facebook. Each mentions the quality of their baked goods and how they provide you with an “old fashioned” feel. This one-stop shop also offers breakfast options such as BLT’s, muffins, and bagels — all baked at their storefront.
Verona Coffee Co.
Best New Kid on the Block
This brand new coffee shop is turning heads and opening doors at their brand new location. They started operations on April 22nd and have already begun dominating the market, and we’re not surprised. Their cozy yet modern atmosphere feels like it was made for everyone. Make sure you hop on over (pun intended) and grab a coffee and cupcake this Sunday morning.
Perfect for early risers, Apple Annie’s will not leave you disappointed. Whether you’re running late on your way to work, or up early for a walk by the water, Apple Annie’s is the place for you. They offer everything from gourmet coffee to fresh fudge. Don’t have a sweet tooth? They also sell fantastic sugar-free chocolate. Make sure to check them out next time you wake up before your alarm.
This Sunday, make sure to grab your coffee buddy and visit one of these fresh cafes. Whether you want to sit back and chat at Mark IV Brothers or shop around at Mariposa these prime locations have you covered. But don’t take our word for it, just try the Boston Cream at The Donut Line. It speaks for itself.
