They have nice healthy sandwiches for lunch, and great deserts anytime. This is a nice lounge anytime, and serve all of your favourite drinks. Great meeting place with friends. You can sit on the patio when... More

We went for a nice quick dinner before going to the movies. I had the pesto cream salmon and it was great. My younger son got the pasta with the chicken and it was good except the fact that they put it in a bowl so it was hard for him to cut his meat and he said there evil... More

Had a wonderful dining experience. Food was great! Loved my dessert, defiently worth a visit for those that want a casual dinning experience. Its a nice place to relax and enjoy a coffee after a movie and pair that with some sweets! I recommend giving this a try next time you go see a movie!

It is beautiful, has great staff and is very clean. However, this is a more expensive place to grab desserts/ drinks. It is valued as a classy place which is reflected in the décor, menu options & staff members. However, in my opinion it's overpriced.

The food was good, but overpriced for what you get. The service was good, but nothing special. Full bar menu with many drink offerings.

Have had breakfast, lunch and dinner here and it's always been great. Service is friendly and quick. I recently had a get together with friends here and they loved it. Have heard not so great things about other locations but never this one and I can attest to that. Only thing I don't like is the condition of their chairs... More

I've been to a few locations so I thought i knew what to expect. However? The service at this location was outstanding. From the host who sat me to the friendly agtentive server who made an excellent suggestion with the pesto chicken sandwich. The food was delicious and served piping hot. Dessert looked incredibly decadent. The tables are spaced well... More

As I continue to go to frequent this location I've noticed the quality of food is going down ,the place really needs to be updated. The staff is always good,no complaints on that. Renovate! Improve the quality of food. Thank you
