Island Cappuccino Morning #14: Casa Mia

Today was my first early morning cappuccino at Casa Mia, the new coffee shop in downtown Charlottetown next to the Bruce MacNaughton Memorial Storefront.

There was some confusion about whether they were actually open or not: there was a “Closed” sign on the front door, so I waited, then phoned, only to be told they were actually open at 9:00 a.m. (they forgot to flip the sign). Eventually they plan to open earlier, but they need to hire staff first.

The coffee — the beans come from Milano Coffee in Vancouver — was fantastic. It’s so nice to see someone treat the preparation of a coffee as an art. I’m tentatively willing to say that their cappuccino is the equal of any on the Island, and perhaps the best.

Please stop by and tell me if you agree.

They forgot to turn the “Closed” sign around today again — if you see they’re nominally closed after 9:00 a.m. I’d feel free to walk in anyway. Coffee was as good today as it was yesterday. They need more breakfast food items, however: the toasted bagel with cream cheese was fine, but a little too much like what I’d have at home.

Loved the vibe in this new shop! The coffee was great, very smooth!

My only complaint; no soy alternatives…yet.
