How many guests can I invite?
We provide tables/seating for up to 50 guests.
How much time do we have for the event?
3.5 hours, typically guests do a 1-hour setup, 2-hour event, and half an hour clean up. If more time is needed additional fees may be added.
Are the cafe services available for showers?
We have complimentary cafe catering, which includes our coffee, tea, and a non-alcoholic drink. Your guests can enjoy the best darn coffee in Nova Scotia, from our roaster's Sissiboo Coffee. We also have orange pekoe and herbal teas. Milk, non-dairy milk, cream, and sugar are provided.

We provide the tables, seating, and drinkware.
Do you serve my guests?
We provide service at our front counter space. As your guests arrive please ask them to come up to the counter to receive their drink order.
What about decorations?
Our space is a blank canvas, very clean and easy to decorate for any theme. You may bring whatever you like, tablecloths, centrepieces, balloons, etc. However, nothing can be pinned or taped onto our walls.
Do you have any vendor recommendations?
Yes, we believe in supporting our small business community so we highly suggest these few businesses:
For food catering services Flavor and Not Just Cakes
For decorating services Nicole's Event Decorating & Rentals
For party flavours, Lillian Company and WineXpert
Where can my guests park?
There is public parking available on Charlotte Street as well as adjacent streets. Parking is free on the weekend as well as evenings.
Am I responsible for clean-up?
Yes. We will provide garbage and recycling bags for you. Anything brought into our space (food, presents, decorations, etc) must be removed following the end of your event.
Inclement weather policy?
We believe in safety first as such any extreme weather warnings where driving is a concern will result in a postponement of your event. This decision will be made 24-48 hours before your event and you will be given options to reschedule to the next closest available date.
We will be affected due to the Charlotte Street construction project this year. Construction is supposed to start sometime in the Spring and will probably run into late Fall. If you have a shower booked for this time please note Charlotte Street will be closed to vehicle traffic between Pitt and Wentworth, but sidewalks will remain open. Unfortunately, we have no control over issues that arise from this project such as water shutdowns, power loss, and sidewalk closures. If postponement of your event is required we will do our best to reschedule to the next closest available date. As a small business being affected by this project, we want to thank you in advance for supporting us through this difficult time.
