The city of Kingston is filled with culinary gems but we are also blessed with coffee shops that offer life's little pleasures complete with a sense of community. Whether you're a student, tourist or local, Kingston is enjoying a bit of an independent coffee revival that includes new cafes, small-batch roasters and fun artistic baristas.

4. Drinks and Mingle

From the wonderfully decorated Great Hall at Sir Johns Public House to the cozy Red House - these low-lit pubs are ideal for those who like to keep things simple in a casual setting with no added pressure. You don't have to dress to the nines or know how to pronounce the names of fancy beverages. Simply ask for a local brew and you are set to go. Also why not rock an ugly Christmas sweater for that extra level of coziness - points for creativity!

 Bonus: Stroll around Springer Market Square

Talk about romantic - Market Square in downtown Kingston is the perfect postcard setting this holiday season.
