Oshawa, the Durham Region, and the Kawarthas has a wide range of coffee shops in the city. While many are centered
around the various communities' downtown business cores, there are lots of other spots to go.
Oshawa and the eastern "GTA" has benefitted from the proliferation of the coffee chains, including
Canadian ones like Timothy's, Second Cup, and Grabbajabba, but the US ones
There are also a number of smaller community-centered coffee establishments that are more homey in nature. We're a small town with a lot of comfortable neighbourhood places to just "go for a coffee."
When you are relaxing in vacation areas of the Kawartha Lakes (including communities like Port Perry, Lindsay and Peterborough), the Halliburton Highlands, and along Lake Ontario in Prince Edward County (including the communities of Tranton, Belleville and Picton), the coffee culture is a bit more relaxed, and each community's leading coffee shops are the local morning meeting places, bringing residents, visitors, cottagers and boaters together.
