I've been frequenting The General for a year, they have great Expresso and Expresso themed drinks and excellent goodies like cookies and date squares. Every time I cycle thru Wellington my first stop is the General. A very friendly atmosphere!!!

Stopped by when on a stroll down the street and had an amazing coffee! Also found interesting hot sauce to buy. Will go back for sure when we are back in town for another coffee and to order from their lunch menu!
