Monigram Coffee Roasters & The Healthy Owl

Merry Christmas KW! It is the most wonderful time of the year. :)

Before heading off to my Christmas dinner, I wanted to share with you all two recently opened cafes. These are cozy places that you can visit if you need a coffee/cookie break over the holidays.

This poster explaining the different types of coffee is genius.

I had a “Monigram-style” double-double. 4 shots of espresso in a cup, probably not for everyone but caffeine does nothing to me so I loved it. Y had a latte. It totaled to $10.

Egg Miss Monica ($5.25)

Special of the day ($3.25). Crust was flaky and eggy, with a hint of cheese. Surprisingly light and delicious.

They sell interesting jams, which can be great presents. I just received two jars of homemade jam from a dear friend the other day. Homemade presents are so much better than something you can buy in the mall!

Wide array of baked goods.

Coffee Kindergarten on Boxing Day – 10:00 – 3:00

Regular hours from there until:

New Year’s Eve: 9:00 – 2:00

New Year’s Day – Coffee Kindergarten – 10-3. And our cold brew is low acid, high caffeine. Perfect for the rumbly tumblies of the morning after…

I wonder what’s coffee kindergarten.

Very modern and sleek, with a very relaxing ambiance.

The coffee cozies are too cute.

2013-12-07 12.27.25

Large hot apple cider ($2) and large coffee ($2.50)

2013-12-07 12.28.27

Small couscous salad ($3.50) – they offer regular or side sizes.

2013-12-07 12.28.32

Small quinoa salad ($3.50).

2013-12-07 12.29.16

Their daily special – Meatless moussaka with cheddar herb bread ($7.50).

This is a great place to check out if you are craving a refreshing healthy lunch around the Conestoga Mall area.

We also tried their cranberry muffin and banana bread. THO reduces oil/butter used in their baked goods for healthier versions, but the baked goods remained moist.

2013-11-09 08.42.32

2013-11-09 08.42.56-1

Closing at 2pm on Christmas Eve.

Closed from Dec 25 – 29.
