Our Story

Matthew and Logan were both born and raised in Kingston, Ontario. In 2015 they put their skills and experience together to transform the old “Laverne’s Laundry” in to an Inner Harbour coffee shop and neighbourhood hub. Over the past 3 years they have had the privilege of meeting and serving this wonderful community. 

 

Matthew

Matthew

Owner

 

Matthew is a stone mason by trade, with a wide range of experience in the restoration of heritage buildings, chimneys and fireplaces. His passion for building, unique experience, and strong sense of community make him a wonderful conversationalist. When he’s not whipping up cappuccinos in the café or repairing heritage buildings around the limestone city, you might find him at a council meeting or walking our chocolate lab Floyd.

Logan

Logan

Owner/operator

 

Logan has worked in hospitality for over 10 years, dedicating her efforts to providing positive experiences for her guests and serving food and drink she can be proud of. After graduating from St. Lawrence College in Behavioural Psychology in 2013, she realized that her “obsession” for good food and drink had naturally evolved into something more, an incredibly rewarding (and delicious) career.
