“Sam's favourite coffee on PEI! This is where we buy the coffee we brew at home! Coffee is roasted by an expert coffee roaster who immigrated from Syria. Also located downtown right on Queen Street and has a great atmosphere for working or sitting and relaxing while you drink a cup (or two!) of delicious coffee!”
