Dartmouth-area Coffee Shop

tempest in a teapot Sep 18, 2009 08:33 AM

My husband and I have just relocated to Dartmouth from Lunenburg, and we're looking for a good coffee shop nearby. We work from home, so coffee shops often acts as a meeting place for clients, and we also like to have a change of place to write in a few times a week.

I guess what we're looking for is a Local Jo-ish place, closer to home.

Cheers, Chowhounders!

    I don't think they're set to open until the end of the month, but Two If By Sea on Ochterloney street looks like it's going to be great: http://twoifbyseabakeshop.com/index.html

      Like Gastropunk, I'm eagerly awaiting the opening of Two If By Sea. Which is a joint venture between a former manager at Steve-o-renos and the woman who sells home made croissants at the Dartmouth Market.

      In the meantime, the only place I know of (other than Starbucks at Chapters) is Our Thyme Cafe, located in a building with no store front, on Portland Street. (It's bizarre because it looks like you are going into someone's apartment and how it got be built that way on a commercial street like Portland in the first place I still wonder) lI haven't been but I have heard from others that it is a cozy spot:
