Penny University Cafe
Feel at home at this cosy cafe with comfort food and great coffee.
In the inner eastern neighbourhood of Kingston, the Penny University Cafe lends itself to a solo visit with coffee and a book. It takes its inspiration from London's 17th-century penny universities: cafes where people from all walks of life would meet to chat and share ideas while drinking coffee (instead of booze). You can count on a welcoming atmosphere.
Sink into a banquette, order your brew of choice, whip out your read and relax for as long as you like. Hungry? There's an extensive menu, driven by local produce. On a cold morning, find comfort in the banoffee croissant French toast, layered with banana, crushed peanuts, vanilla whipped mascarpone, popcorn, salted caramel and shaved chocolate ($19).
