This place has the best pizza ever. And my favorite walnut crusted goats cheese salad. Perfect for lunch. In the summer there is a nice patio More seating inside and tables set up in the burlington welcome center. Park in the parking garage attached. Bring home some freshly baked bread and pastries. Perfect as always.

Go for their breakfast of eggs, thick cut bacon, heirloom potatoes, artisan bread highly toasted, coffee and a great view of Burlington and the people just off Lakeshore.

We both ordered The Special which includes two eggs, 3 bacon, asparagus, bread, fruit and a really good side of potato hash with carrots. The price is great at $11.95 plus $1.75 for coffee. It was really busy on Sunday but we were able to get a table without having to wait.

It is a cafe that serves various breads, sandwiches, and pastries. You can get a delicious meal for a decent price. It is not a restaurant, more cafeteria style. But it does get busy because the food is so good and the product is so fresh. You should try it if you are in the area.

Very nice fresh baked bread, pizzas and sandwiches. Good for a quick lunch when you are downtown. A little bit pricey for what you get. Unfortunately they don't have a lot of seating, but you can sit out in the area where the information centre is as they have a few tables out there.

Pane Fresco has the best fresh bread in Burlington. Their breads are also sold at local Fortinos grocery stores, however not as good as the breads made fresh at their home location.

Pizza here is great -- several interesting choices of toppings, made in a real wood-burning oven. Cafe setting inside (thus a bit noisy), and a good-size, sunny, outdoor patio (alongside Locust St.). But the real deal here is the Classic breakfast -- eggs, thick-cut maple bacon, roasted asparagus, home fries, a couple of slices of a toasted baguette, and some... More

We enjoy eating here whenever we are downtown. The food is all exceptional - we've had the pizza, canoli, breakfast, danishes, cappuccino and my favourite is the meatball sub on Thursdays. Everything is homemade and delicious. But as with all quality food - expect to pay for it, but trust me, it's worth it. Our children love it too. I... More
