All Balzac’s

“Don't miss Balzac's Coffeehouse...”

Katherine Ashenburg,  The New York Times

Situated across from the University of Waterloo’s new health Sciences Centre, the historic Lang Tannery has been re-purposed into a ‘convergence centre’ where creativity and business can mutually flourish. Google, Desire2Learn and Communitech are among the dynamic new tenants that we now call our exceptional “regulars”.

Like the Parisian cafés that Monsieur Balzac himself frequented, the energy generated when intellectuals, artists, and entrepreneurs gather to exchange ideas and opinions is as stimulating as a shot of our double espresso.
