Café Olya: delivering big taste from a small space

Contributed by Hilary Browning

 

It may be the smallest cafe on Parliament St, at less than 400 sq ft, but what it lacks in size it makes up for with quality product. Walk in the door and you’ll be met by friendly owners Mike Tasso and Olyana Zhuk, serving up delicious coffee and fresh treats that they bake in store. The first thing you notice is the smell, it’s divine.  If you doubt that a scent can brighten your mood, simply walk inside.
Mike and Olyana take great care to source their coffee beans from some of the best roasters in North America. Armed with fresh, top-notch beans, Mike is ready to pull your favourite coffee drink while you eye the day’s selection of goodies. All of which are baked by hand, in small batches and with quality ingredients. Olyana is an exceptional baker and after what she has crafted for the day is gone, it’s gone. No day olds and nothing from the freezer here. If you’re lucky and it’s a croissant day they are indescribably good. Hurry though, they often sell out quickly.
Check out their Facebook page for tantalizing photos of the day’s goodies, then stop in for what will surely become your new obsession.
