About the venue:

Dog-Eared Café 121 Grand River St, Paris Ontario, N3L 0E7

Dog-Eared Café has been conceived of in the tradition of European cafe models of old to provide an atmosphere in which art, literature, activism, and conversation are paramount, taking precedence over long lines, impatient baristas, and uncomfortable seating designed to discourage long stays. It’s a comfortable couch and a good book; a warm, carefully crafted coffee drink cupped in our hands, sipped slow to wash down a rich treat savoured. It’s good music and honest conversations, the world’s demands left at the door.
Located in historic downtown Paris, Ontario with a picturesque view of the Grand River, Dog-Eared Café serves perfected crafted espresso drinks, delectable baked goods, fresh sandwiches, and offers a diverse selection of well-loved books in all genres to peruse while enjoying a really, really good cup of coffee. There will also be a bar available and you can enjoy refreshing beers, yummy wines and other alcoholic beverages.
