After a brief closure and a change of ownership, the Juniper Café at the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning is now open once again, and with some changes that are perfectly timed for summer.

With amazing new staff and a lovely waterfront patio, you get the same amazing latte to enjoy with a great view! The Juniper Café now boasts a patio, complete with Adirondack chairs, perfect for overlooking Lake Ontario.

Earlier in the year, Juniper Cafe switched owners, and then closed for renovations to improve their service. They are finally open again, and already attracting regulars, from parents of the children taking dance lessons at the Tett Centre, to those who prefer to work in the beautiful café setting with some yummy treats or the aforementioned latte (or any other beverage, for that matter, including local wines and ciders).

Their food is still amazing and changes weekly to accommodate everyone’s taste buds, as well as keep things exciting. Soup, salads, sandwiches, and baked goods make it a great option for lunch or an afternoon pick-me-up. Above all else, new owner Raissa Sarkisian is dedicated to local and sustainable ingredients.

“Our team values will be based on three pillars: Quality, Sustainability and Respect for the environment and people around us. With that, you can rest assured, your sandwiches will continue to be made with love,” Sarkisian said in a public statement in May of 2019.

We do our best to source the finest ingredients from local farms and local business when possible. We believe in providing fair livable wages for our employees and work to create a wholesome healthy community,” the Juniper Café says on its website.

And as the spring turns into summer, the Juniper Café will certainly be getting a lot of traffic – after all, what better way to spend a hot summer afternoon than enjoying your favourite beverage in the cool breeze off the lake?
