I have yet to have their soup but they all look delicious. Their chai tea is the best I've had since Vancouver. If you get a chance to have the tea, you MUST have their ginger cookie with it. Just like my mom use to make them. Sooo yummy.

I rented a cottage in the Stratford area and was thrilled to find that the Now and Zen Coffee House was close enough that I could start each day with one of their great coffees. I tried something different each day depending on the mood of the day and was never dissapointed. Not to mention the great breakfast sandwiches and... More

We were looking forward to a really good, strong cup of coffee, but were a little disappointed. Coffee was average, service was a little slow. The muffin we bought to go made for a healthy lunch snack later on in the day. It was an a verge coffee shop, just like so many across North America- nothing outstanding

Thanks for the good review on our muffins, we are very proud of them. Our Organic House Blend is a medium dark roast which seems to cover most peoples tastes but, if you prefer something bolder/stronger we offer our Dark Roast Sumatran in a French Press. This is a very robust and smooth coffee. Bob More

I look forward to going back every time! I haven't tried it yet, but apparently they serve some fantastic soup. I have had their grilled cheese sandwiches on several occasions and they are delicious - especially with the pear! Nice comfy chairs and a fire place make a relaxing atmosphere. Service is always great every time I've been there.

My wife and I tried the grilled cheese with apple panini sandwich which was excellent. We just moved to this area and we know we will frequent this delightful cafe a lot. Great food, coffee and friendly service.

Soup is excellent, and the sandwich is top-notch. Very fresh. Wouldn't even know it was gluten free bread!

Now and Zen has such a peaceful atmosphere! It's a great place to enjoy coffee and a sandwich (delicious) and engage in conversation with a friend or two. This is also my "go to" place when I'm needing to do some homework. Excellent service all around.

Now n Zen is a frequent stop of mine when I'm in the Charlottetown area. The vibe of the cafe is very relaxed. The seating area is a little busy with yoga and meditation supplies, but not overwhelming. The staff are always quick and friendly. They have a simple menu with tasty soups, which change daily, and a delicious panini.... More
