The Mighty Oak is literally your neighbourhood coffee shop. It is located in the middle of a residential area with nothing but houses. Imagine just waking up and walking a few houses down to grab a coffee and a treat. Flo and I were in the area and just had to check this little place out.
They are also a small grocery store. They sell pies, Earnest Ice Cream, Nice Pops and so many other little things. If you are in some need of some yogurt or ingredients, I’m sure you can find it here.
It’s very cute. Instead of having a front lawn, I suppose they wanted a coffee shop/grocery store instead. Even though I don’t live in the area, it really brought me back to my childhood where you would go with your parents for a short walk to get a nice treat.
The interior is very nice and simple. You can tell the owners put a lot of their heart and soul into the business.
Since it was a very hot day, Flo and I decided to get some Ice Lattes and a Baileys Pecan Butter Tart.
Iced Latte was just what I needed on a hot summers day. It was nice and strong. Just perfect.
The Baileys Butter Pecan Tart was very cute and from the outside, you definitely see more crust than filling.
When we cut into it, there’s a good amount of filling and doesn’t make it too sweet. It paired well with the coffee.
I couldn’t resist but to get a Raspberry and Basil Nice Pop. The flavour was really delicious! It wasn’t cheap though, it was about $4. The amount of fruit they pack in there is pretty good.
Overall, we liked The Mighty Oak. Cute little place! We will definitely be returning when we’re in the area.
