In 2004, Bella Krieger discovered a derelict heritage building tucked away on a small side street, a little off the beaten path of downtown Guelph. She envisioned there the a cozy cafe – a place of warmth and charm that would draw in a diverse variety of people, a place where local art could hang on the walls and local musicians would shape the atmosphere with rich acoustic sounds. Bella was envisioning a place to host community events, a meeting place, a quiet work space, and a place to be inspired. Over the last 16 years, thousands of customers have passed through the café’s doors, and over 100 local artists have been featured on the café’s walls. The café’s modest stage has lit up the whole building with the sound of local musicians, and the café has been home to countless community events. The Cafe has always done its part to support the Guelph community at large, regularly sponsoring events like Kazoo Fest, the Comedy Festival, Jazz Fest, Film Fest, and the Guelph Music Festival. The Cafe has also hosted countless private events, such as theatre groups, musicians, and has even been used as a set for the popular TV show, "Murdoch Mysteries"! It is a hot spot for photographers, having hosted a number of photo shoots including wedding and engagement shoots, business shoots and more! What's Included?
