“Community has always been a value for Pyrus and Kitchener Public Library is a natural extension of that focus,” Cafe Pyrus owner Tyzun James stated.

“Similar to our Outpost menu, we will focus on incredible drinks, fresh baked goods, take-away snacks, and the friendly service you’ve come to expect from us.”
