The Coffee Project

The Coffee Project at McKenzie Corner embodies the Root Cellar’s local focus, offering honest to goodness house made breakfast, lunch and snack options to go, and serves up locally roasted Discovery Coffee including an exclusive-to-us Root Cellar blend, local Jaga Silk maccha & Silk Road teas, as well as house made seasonal specialties including our very own soft serve ice cream (with both organic and dairy free options). And did we mention the doughnuts? Made locally every morning.


Located at the junction of the city and agricultural farmland, our award-winning flagship market is home to our sweet Coffee Project!
