This is a neighbourhood coffee shop with a focus on fresh, local food. The coffee is from Detour in Dundas. I believe that much of the produce they use is bought from the Ottawa St. Farmers Market (which happens to be our favourite market in Hamilton).
Cannon Coffee Co. features pour-over brewed coffee, where the coffee is brewed in a ceramic drip-through over your mug. We find the coffee exceptional, but it is a long process. They just introduced a French press coffee option, greatly increasing the speed. In the sake of integrity, we ordered one of each. The pour-over is on the left, the French press on the right. We found that that the French press coffee had a more robust flavour and was preferred by Ms. HitH, while the pour over was smoother and preferred by Mr. HitH. Truly, you couldn't go wrong with either option.
It was fantastic. The creaminess of the avocado and goat cheese contrasted very well with the crunchiness of the waffle. The veggies were still crisp and who doesn't love balsamic drizzle?
Mr. HitH ordered The Canadian. This is a apple waffle topped with bacon, two poached eggs and cheddar cheese, served with maple syrup (which comes in an adorable little pot for pouring).
I would love to give you details on this meal. Unfortunately, Mr. HitH was too busy eating to share this thoughts, beyond moans of pleasure. The chunks of apple embedded in the waffle were awesome. The bacon was thick and, well, what else needs to be said about bacon? If I was eating this, I would have preferred my eggs a little less poached - the yolks were wobbly, but solid - but he was pleased with it. He very much enjoyed himself.
Mr. HitH couldn't resist, and ordered some baked goods. I protested - who needed more food? - but my whining was ineffectual. He ordered a plum crumble muffin and a chocolate almond cranberry cookie.
