Summer Welcomes New Shops in Downtown Kingston

Friday, July 08, 2016

Summer is officially upon us with its blazing heat and fun festivities happening in downtown Kingston. From Buskers Rendezvous to Movies in the Square, our vibrant city is bursting with culture, creativity and quite the foodie scene. This summer in particular, we welcome some new fun filled additions that certainly require mention and will be at the top of your bucket list.

Balzac's Coffee Roasters

Named in honour of coffee aficionado and French novelist Honoré de Balzac, Balzac’s started out as a coffee stand in Toronto and fast forward today, locations spread across Southern Ontario. This cafe has now made its way into the lovely city of Kingston and I couldn't be any happier. With core founding values of being artisanal, sustainable, local and natural, Balzac's will be a great addition to the downtown core.

Opens July 8th, 2016 at 12pm!

Where: Princess Street and Sydenham Street, Kingston, ON


Tucked away up on Princess St lies a new fresh and frozen yogurt bar serving up healthy options. From frozen greek yogurt to refreshing toppings such as fruits, dark chocolate chips and granola, Parfait is the perfect spot to cool off this summer and indulge without feeling guilty.

Where: 268 Princess St, Kingston, ON

Cacao 70

The ultimate haven for chocoholics is yours truly Cacao 70, soon to be opening just steps away from historic Springer Market Square. Prepare yourself for a dessert overload! The menu offers sweet fixes such as chocolate marshmallow pizza, banana split waffles and chocolate fondues. The options are endless and if you're craving it, then chances are Cacao 70 serves it. But don't worry, they also serve brunch options that include sweet and savoury delights from omelettes, grilled sandwiches to pressed crepe sandwiches.

Opening soon.

Where: 340 King St E, Kingston, ON
