Mahtay Café & Lounge in downtown St Catharines is my favourite casual spot this Winter to meet-up with friends, or quietly slide into a cosy lounge chair and catch-up on emails with a hot cup of chai.
This laid-back café and bar has a boho student vibe and is all about the local community. Exhibitions by local artists line the walls and Mahtay’s Community Room is buzzing with a plethora of groups and activities.
Couches with coffee tables are great for friends to enjoy a cosy catch-up or creative minds to huddle around mugs of espresso and plan their next venture. If you are feeling a little more introverted, there is also a community book shelf and board games.
The Twilight Jazz Series is held here on the first Sunday of every month, and you can enjoy a Niagara brew on tap while hearing some the Niagara region’s finest jazz musicians.
If you are looking for somewhere in downtown St Catharines to warm-up with a hot beverage, grab a casual meal with mates or join your local community for an event, Mahtay Café & Lounge is worth checking out.
