A friend and i chose this restaurant as it was one of the few vegetarian options in the area. The menu was filled with veggie/vegan options. Breakfast was delicious, the food was fresh and flavorful. The staff were great and very accommodating. Lost a star due to the size of the diner. It is rather small and the tables were... More

We decided to go big because we weren't going home. Not to mention we hadn't eaten in 18 hours. We both ordered a version of the traditional; eggs, bacon, a green salad, toast & tofu scramble, tempeh, fresh fruit, and toast. Then we shared the banana walnut pancakes. There was nothing left when we were done! It's on my favorites... More

Good diner style food with an obvious modern influence. We were here for breakfast and were seated rather quickly on a busy Sunday morning. Being a Canadian, the nice touch here is that poutine seems to be side option with every meal, and it was pretty good actually. The meals were good and reasonably priced. I would definitely return to... More

Cozy little place. Vegan, Vegetarian, and gluten-free options. I had the veggie omelette. It was fresh, delicious, and I wanted a second. The sourdough bread was also delicious. Bean spouts on top of everything for a garnish was a nice touch. We ate on the patio. It was a great Sunday morning breakfast experience.

Tried breakfast here on a Tuesday morning. Promptly greeted by a friendly server and brought coffee quickly. Ordered the traditional breakfast (eggs, potatoes, bacon, ww toast) and also wanted to order the vanilla scones, which were $7 on the menu. They were out of the vanilla scones, but the server offered a blueberry version "from the weekend". The good-the coffee... More

Went with a group of 5, sat outside on the nice patio and had amazing food. I loved my breakfast poutine! Everyone enjoyed what they had (though my wife was uncertain about the bacon). The staff was helpful and friendly and the food was wonderful!

Great quiches, poutines and Benedicts. Great scones, muffins, lemon curd and strawberry jam. The service is a well oiled machine. Most times, we sit right down. It's worth the wait.
