Community Love at The Elm Cafe

Friday, June 24, 2016

Tucked away down on Montreal Street in the city of Kingston lies an unexpected yet wonderful place that simply exudes it's own unique vibe - here you will find The Elm Cafe. As the first business of its kind in many years in the inner harbour, this coffee shop is a new addition to the growing lively neighbourhood. Owners Logan Kerr and Matthew McCartney have unveiled a fresh new space that will now serve as a destination for casuals lunches, first dates, catch-up sessions and so much more in the area!

Formerly known as Laverne's Laundry, a place that holds a dear spot for many Kingstonians, the opening of The Elm Cafe has been graciously accepted with open arms by friends, family and neighbours alike. The feeling of belonging and community is felt immediately as you walk in, as though the cafe had been there years prior and magically transformed. You are greeted with such friendly smiles behind the counter and glancing around, you quickly notice the local support for artists as their stunning artwork draws you in.

The Elm Cafe came to fruition with the passion of spreading positive vibes, providing a warm atmosphere for customers and bringing the community together over delicious food and coffee. Turning this notion into a career and owning a coffee shop was the logical step. From specialty coffee, homemade treats and savoury sandwiches, The Elm Cafe goes beyond traditional coffee shops in terms of what it stands for. It caters to all backgrounds as it allows folks to collaborate and share ideas, socialize, create and overall grow a vibrant community. Values that mean a great sense of importance to owners Logan and Matthew.

As proud parents to a new business, both young owners originally from Kingston knew their ties to the city would bring them back after life adventures. Their skills combined of working in the customer service, hospitality and trades industry as well as pure passion allowed them to follow their calling and add a little gem in a popular neighbourhood.
