Your tour guide will greet you inside The Habit Coffee & Bakeshop, where you will meet other tour guests before beginning the tour experience. The first 30-45 minutes will include the coffee tasting experience and full tour of this historic re-purposed Church. Next, walk across the street, into the 2nd oldest Municipal park in Ontario. After some history + stories, we will make our way (2-3 blocks) to two other local food establishments awaiting us, to enjoy delicious ‘comfort’ food at one of their tables. The final destination is only 400 meters from our starting point.

Yes, all tastings of food + drink (as described for each tour under ‘What to Expect’) are covered with your ticket purchase. Additionally, ‘Seek’ provides a minimum of 18% gratuity to all restaurant servers. If you desire additional drinks or food during any of the stops beyond what the tour offers, there will be opportunities for you to purchase these at your own additional expense. We do however, recommend that you wait until the end of the tour, so that you don’t fill up too soon and miss out on tastings planned for you!
Please be sure and let us know if you (or anyone in your group) has a dietary restriction (e.g. vegetarian, diabetic, allergy, etc.) when you purchase your tickets. As long as we know in advance, we can accommodate your needs at most of the locations.
Please note: most restaurants can accommodate gluten-free options, however, very few food establishments can ensure that cross contamination will never occur, therefore it is difficult to guarantee that it is Celiac-safe.
Yes we do!
We welcome special requests for custom tours or private events (e.g. out of town guests, family reunions, staff parties, corporate team-building, conferences, book clubs, showers, birthday parties, and more).
Contact us – and we’d be happy to co-create a memorable experience for you and your group!
