  • The light at GENE around 5/6pm is sooooo beautiful. Good for Portraits.
  • Try the cappuccino. Here it's more like a flat white: the velvety texture of a cappuccino, but with the intensity of a strong espresso. Best of both worlds!
  • Gene cafe is for hipsters, our town cafe is for hippies. What a difference one block makes.
  • Sit in the narrow corner. Intimate.
  • great croissants
  • Slow, clumsy but super friendly service in this hip, bright Mt. Pleasant coffee shop. Oh, and the coffee? Phenomenal. Also try the rooibos chai latte. Pet-friendly!
  • Hands down the best croissants in the CITY. Freshly baked a couple times a day, there is a good chance you'll get them WARM. Solid cup o' Americano too.
  • Great bright space on the corner where Main and Kingsway connect. They serve cortados!
  • Try the Cortado; you won't regret it!
  • I love Gene's coffee. I just wish the service was a bit faster.
  • Good coffee & still bright on a grey day.
  • cool new lighting fixture! great people watching and interesting music always
  • Excellent cortado, friendly service
  • Nice little cafe in the middle of no where. Ha.
  • Wifi = farmfolkcityfolk
  • Wifi: farmfolkcityfolk
  • Huge windows are great for natural light, gazing at the downtown skyline, and Main St people watching (both inside and out). Excellent, eclectic selection of reading material. Lots of hipsters around.
  • Hey there are new owners here!!! And new baristas :( What do you think of the coffee now?
  • Coffee shop for hipsters. Where MACbook, indie rock and 70s inspired fashion mesh. Try the ginger hot chocolate for something new.
  • Best almond milk latte I've ever had
