Cafe in Downtown & West End

For a coveted seat at one of the dinged old tables, arrive off-peak at this sunny, super-friendly corner cafe, which combines creaky wooden floors and a junk-shop bric-a-brac aesthetic. You'll be joining hipsters and office workers who've been calling this their local for years and come mainly for the freshly prepared baguette sandwiches (pear, blue Brie, prosciutto and roasted walnuts recommended).

A quirky little hangout, Finch's is a great spot for an afternoon cake and coffee. It's also a popular breakfast destination, with boiled egg and soldiers an ever-popular comfort-dish option.
