Lakeshore Coffee House never fails to welcome me with Burlington’s friendliest service and smiles! The familiar faces are always a delight to see, and all of the staff members are a pleasure to talk to. To complement the friendly staff, the welcoming environment includes a small storefront with window seating, with an upstairs fireside seating area and outside patio seating with a fantastic view of Lake Ontario. The casual atmosphere is a perfect place to bring family and friends to relax and chat over delicious pastries, soups, salads, sandwiches, drinks and more!
The upstairs fireside seating area is a good reason on its own to visit Lakeshore Coffee House. It is a beautiful, cozy and well-lighted area, perfect to curl up with a book and work with a tea or coffee in hand.
When exploring Burlington’s lakefront, the food selections ranging from quiche to ice cream with yummy desserts and sandwiches in between are essential. The menu is perfect for on-the-go and sit down breakfast, lunch and coffee breaks with home-made tasting treats.
For a relaxing start to the weekend, I opt for waffles and syrup paired with a London Fog, enjoyed on the patio with a great view of Burlington’s waterfront. When taking a break from viewing Burlington’s downtown shops and attractions, Lakeshore Coffeehouse is my go-to place for both cold and warm drinks, including the ever-so-delicious milkshakes!
Lakeshore Coffee House goes beyond the milkshakes to make its mark as a local talent venue! As a big supporter of local artists, I love visiting their monthly open mic nights from 7 p.m. until closing while enjoying snacks and drinks, and listening to talented pianists, singers, guitarists and more. The carrot cake tastes especially delicious when paired with the stylings of local musicians!
Lakeshore Coffee House is downtown Burlington’s go-to casual restaurant with great entertainment, friendly customer service and a delicious variety of treats!
