The Edge Cafe looks very much like a chic, sophisticated restaurant. But the funny thing is, while it’s rather posh and nice looking, customers seem to come from all sorts of avenues of the world. And the prices are NOWHERE near the ultra expensive ones. They have created a “menu for the economic crisis” with soup and a sandwich for $ 6.50. That’s lunch, and that’s probably as inexpensive or in the neighbourhood of Wendy’s or Tim Horton’s.

They also seem to have wireless, although I’ll admit the laptop I am currently using didn’t want to connect to any of the networks. So, I’ll believe it when I see it :) Finally, I should also point out that while I see very comfy couches and chairs, I don’t know whether they have enough power outlets to sustain as many people wth laptops as, say, Waves.

The Edge Cafe is spacious and well illuminated. The restaurant/cafe has a lot of windows and amazing natural light. The coffee was actually really good, I have absolutely no complaints about that. Despite the fact that I wouldn’t work here for an extended period of time, I would be more than happy to try The Edge Cafe for brunch sometime. Anyone want to join?”

It gets the standardized McDonald’s label, which usually means "consistent, good, but nothing extraordinary". Ok, so I had my preconceptions of this "franchise", as we all do around the idea of a franchise. Tons of open floor space and windows all over the place really makes you feel open and at ease. Timothy and Leah are the proud operators of this Wired Monk. This time we came in toting cash, and laptops;.

Though we still continue to try other blends and other roasters so we can fully understand coffee in all its different options, we are always coming back to Hines. Well, not an ode, but more a positive rant. I am very happy Hines is still roasting.
