I highly recommend the Bad Dog (disclosure: I'm friends with the owners and my wife works there the odd weekend). Their brew is hands down the best in the city. If you're looking for straight coffee, the Colombian fair trade stall in the Farmers Market (behind the east escalator) is a close second.

As for the funding to buy Jerry's, I'm glad council decided not to release the funds.    /ducks/

  1. They don't have matching federal and provincial money yet, so this could lead them into a financial squeeze from which the city would be under a certain amount of pressure to extricate them.

  2. I don't know how I feel about giving three quarters of a million dollars to an arts group to buy a new centre. It seems to me that Artists Inc feels entitled to a public subsidy for their efforts, but I'm not sure how much of that will actually go into building public amenities or strengthening the community.

Sky Dragon established themselves under their own steam, bootstrapping up from nothing and building an impressive community organization with real buying power. They earned every penny they've got, they're not beholden to any government or corporate interests, and they have a healthy respect for fiscal prudence.
