C Cafe captures the essence of Civic Centre. Cuisine. Celebration.
Community + Culture
A space Mississaugans can take pride in.
Constructed in 1985, the Civic Centre received the Governor General Award from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, which is the highest award for architecture in Canada. It has been declared an architectural landmark.
Upon entering the Civic Centre is the Great Hall. Appropriately named, this area consists of marble and granite columns rising four stories to a 20-metre-high glass skylight.
At the southeast corner of the Great Hall is the Art Gallery of Mississauga, where there is always a free-admission art exhibit to take in.
The official cornerstone of the Civic Centre was laid at the south entrance of the building, in what was originally an indoor garden conservatory.
It is this space that was chosen for the location of C Cafe. With its new, chic, urban design, the space captures the prominent architectural elements of the original conservatory. Its 3-storey wall, glazed with windows, illuminate the space with a remarkable view of the open sky. C Cafe not only honours its historical significance but creates a whole new concept. It is a place to meet and savour delicious food in the centre of all the action at Civic Centre and Mississauga Celebration Square.
Experience flavours with an urban twist. Modest, yet satisfying portions of exotic, subtle flavours complement one another. Come explore the menu.
