If you recognize the location, that's because it's in the spot where the Moe's used to be (RIP Moe's). And it also happens to be literal steps away from Dawson College.

Described as an independent coffee shop with a laid-back atmosphere, Shaughnessy Cafe focuses on serving up direct trade coffee and baked goods, according to their website.
