About Us

Seven Shores is a simple, ethical and relational business at the heart of the local food scene in Uptown Waterloo. We aim to provide quality business, relationships, food and space for farmers, customers and everyone in between. Seven Shores continually strives to source as much local food as possible, have a living wage policy for all employees, and support the local community by offering space, events and services. Our hope is to enrich lives through each daily interaction. 

The Cafe serves fresh, local food through a healthy menu (soups, salads, sandwiches, spring rolls, smoothies and organic fairly traded coffee) offered to eat-in, take-out, or through our catering services. We are known for our baked goods – scones, muffins, cookies, brownies, sticky buns, and doughnuts – baked in-house daily and made to delight. We are very conscious of dietary restrictions and allergies and will always accommodate your needs. We have indoor seating, a beautiful outdoor patio, and a community room that is available for groups, meetings, and as a quiet work space.

Seven Shores is community owned and operated. The core ownership group is made up of 10 people who loved and called Seven Shores home before forming an ownership group together. Over 15 community members also own a piece of Seven Shores through our Community Share program. Seven Shores is a social venture whereby success isn’t measured by profit alone. We strive to be generous, co-operative, creative, and people-oriented. Our staff and customers are considered our family.

We invite you to make Seven Shores a place where you will always see a friendly face and have a great conversation.
