I've been to this place numerate times - for brunch, coffee/tea, lunch, afternoon snack/early supper, or just pastries/dessert. I've never had a bad experience. The service and food are always great.

This place is appropriate for business meetings when trying to avoid students&Laptop crowds. This is achieved by setting up an enormous price list. However, the problem is that I have never experienced a friendly, customer focused service. While the quality of the food is fine,...More

What's better to wake up with in the morning than a beautifully brewed cappuccino with a fleur-de-lys design on top and a perfect cream puff, not too sweet, made right on the premises? Lots of other fresh baked goods to choose from and a pleasant...More

Good selection of baked items and excellent coffee. The almond croissant was especially good. Lovely open concept and view of Bloor Street.

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
