Hamilton Haunts: Durand Coffee

Tuesday, 5 July 2016

“I'd rather take coffee than compliments just now.” 
― Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

Just a few years ago, it was tough to get a good cup of coffee in Hamilton. My Dog Joe was far away in the west end, and Mulberry was a brand-new hot spot on James North. Since then, so many trendy coffee shops have popped up across the downtown core that it’s difficult to keep up with them. A few weeks ago, I finally visited Durand Coffee at 142 Charlton Avenue West (at the corner of Charlton and Caroline) and I instantly fell in love. I ordered a Paris Fog (The barista explained that it’s like a London Fog, but infused with lavender!) and sat quietly, enjoying the atmosphere and the wonderful collection of books. Durand Coffee has quickly become a favourite, but a quick word of warning, they don’t have night-time hours, closing at five on Monday-Wednesday and Sunday, and seven on Thursday, Friday, and, Saturday. Stop by soon for a Paris Fog! You won’t regret it.
