Well....the title says it all. My partner and I asked to split the Mexican breakfast....and they did all the splitting for us at no extra charge. Those refried beans are incredible! It was all fairly spicy.....which I really liked. Served with some fresh fruit. A very interesting flavoured Mexican omelette.......I really enjoyed it. The food is prepared from scratch, and...

I had vowed not to return here due to how slow they are. Friends talked me into it today . We waited 90 minutes for 2 eggs and toast. Yep. There were 8 of us However people that came in after us were served first !! Will not be returning. When the food came we didn't have utensils. Horrible service.... More

The food was delicious and filling and the menu offered a variety of dishes for vegetarian, vegan and gluten free patrons. Not a good place for those who are looking for diner type breakfasts full of meat and grease. Thank goodness

I became familiar with this downtown restaurant when my daughter started attending Trent University, and I always made a point of visiting it when in town (I live in Ottawa). Although my daughter graduated from Trent several years ago and is no longer in Peterborough, I ensure that this restaurant is a stop when I happen to be driving through... More

Been here about 10 times now and I think the food is awesome. Went once with a 3 yr old and he enjoyed himself playing in a kids area off to the side. Décor is a TexMex style, good colors and artwork. Serve yourself coffee. Wait staff have always been pleasant even though they are run off their feet. Witnessed... More

We stopped by during our trip from Milan (italy) to northern Ontario, and enjoyed something unusual and delicious: food and place, judge yourself from the pictures. Coffee was very good, which is something italian people do not say often when they are abroad! And I am sorry, my sweet salad was so inviting that I forgot to take a picture... More

The menu has grown! I am so pleased to see that most of the items on the menu are either vegan or can be ordered vegan (with a few exceptions.) Choosing between so many tasty options is now the problem. Wes, one of the owners, always goes above and beyond for the customers and is one of the creative forces... More

A wonderful place for lunch, with lots of local and whole food, plant-based options. The restaurant feels very 'real' and own to earth.It has a small environmental footprint, but is big on taste and selection. Just remember to bring cash!!

So this place came highly recommended, it has good food, but since i didn't look like a hipster or like like I fit in that crowd, I was very rudely treated. When I told friend about this, I was laughed at for expecting to be treated normal if I was wearing "jock" stuff in the place..... I want to try... More
