A little About Nancy Roy and ROY LANE coffee

Roy has been brewing for years, it just didn't have a home, when Nancy discovered the opportunity to move to a bright sunny downtown space on front street, the Latte's and Cappuccino's found a home. Roy Lane is a remarkable experience for everyone. Roy Lane has an atmosphere that you can feel as soon as you walk in the door. The staff welcome you like you are family and we provide you with a high class of service that you would only expect to get in the city. It is a surprise to most newcomers. Lunches, Lattes, Summer Drinks and Sweets are just a few of the reason's it is so popular.


Roy Lane first opened its doors in 2001 to a welcoming and coffee craving Sioux Lookout. Roy lane is a small, quaint store that is talked about across the country, as it is the only place in Sioux Lookout where you can get a latte or a cappuccino. Roy Lane has pleasantly surprised its customers and in turn, its customers have surprised Roy Lane.


There are many reasons to stop by Roy Lane! You can enjoy a healthy lunch in-store or take it to go; you can purchase gift certificates or coffee cards; have a lunch catered or coffee delivered; have a quiet cup of coffee and read a magazine or join a friend to share a piece of cheesecake; run in and out for a take out coffee, juice, slush, fresh muffin, cookie, applejack or cinnamon bun.


A lot of love and friendship is in the Roy Lane coffee. It's not just about pouring coffee. Nancy Roy, will describe it as a lot of sweat, tears, fun and throw in a whole lot of satisfaction. Roy Lane has the best staff to pour your coffee, chat with you and genuinely care about how your day is going. Our staff are the heartbeat of our business. To own a business like this you have to build friendships with your customers.  You have to give customers a reason to come back regularly.  Staff is the key to any business, and I can say I have the BEST staff in Sioux Lookout.  They work hard for me, they are never late, they never blow a shift, they are well dressed, polite, smart, and if they aren’t all of this in a package, they don’t last too long here.  I work along side of them, and although people think I am never here, I am always in the dungeon either catering or baking.  I am here 90 percent of the time.


Add some amazing customers that believe in our products, long-lasting friendship, the atmosphere, a quaint little oasis as most people call it and you have Roy Lane. All of these things and more make Roy Lane the first stop when visiting Sioux Lookout and after the first visit, it is an automatic return.


Meeting New People

That's what Roy Lane is all about! And what a meeting place it has become. So many new people have discovered our little shop and are thrilled with our products and drop by daily. By the end of their vacation, they are part of our family and it’s no longer a handshake but a hug and a promise to see us soon.

"I am doing exactly what I love at my age, in a community that I love, and what more can you ask for in your lifetime! Thank You, Sioux Lookout - you are one unique community!"   - By Nancy Roy
