The ambiance is great, the service, food and coffee outstanding, and the location great. The menu offers many choices, but try the fishcakes.

This is a great place to go to get amazing food in a laid back and quiet restaurant. Not a lot of tables, great for couples. Food was very well prepared and tasted great. What looked to be a $30+ meal costed $20. I had salmon with mango salsa, really good! Burger and soup was also grrat

Had the fish cakes and loved them. The toutons were also great. I suppose my only gripe would be the price/value overall, but still not horrible compared to the chains.

We stopped here after a visit to Quidi Vidi for a late light lunch. We enjoyed the chili vegetarian soup and the spinach salad. Service was friendly. This spot only takes cash so be prepared!

Went here for lunch on the way to the Quidi Vidi brewery (4 min drive away). We had a burger and soup for about $12-14. It was tasty and had a homemade feel to it rather than straight out of the can or freezer. This place is cash only.

We were so excited to find a healthy funky little spot for brunch in St. John's. We sat at a round table right under a window, with interesting artwork surrounding us. The waiter brought us over the biggest cups of medium roast coffee - with almond milk thank you very much! Two orders of eggs benny on gluten-free bread and... More

Found this gem on my last visit to St. John's and was eager to return. Pleased to see that the quality and service remains as strong as I remembered. Ideally located a short walk from the Sheraton en route towards Quidi Vidi Village, provides a few tables outside to enjoy the weather and great for breakfast, coffee or lunch.

Thank A P
