Brunch started with fresh baked scones and home made jams, followed by pumpkin soup and kiesh. Desert was a fruit delicacy that we took home to eat later.

Good food, good service in a small and intimate location.

I found an offer for a brunch for two with "Groupon" and decided to try this place out. It's located in a small strip plaza so if you are going there look out for it. This place is nice and simply designed which makes it suitable for an easy afternoon meal. The brunch consisted of tea, scones, soup, quiche, and crepes. While I wondered how much I was going to get for the price, I must admit it was worth it. The food was very tasty and well proportioned for afternoon brunch. The server that day also happened to be the owner and although this place was busy she managed to keep everything going. Overall I would say that this lovely little place was a "HIT" for an afternoon meal. If you do happen to use a "Groupon" make reservations ahead of time it gets quite busy on a Saturday.

Each dish seems to have one or two imaginative ingredients that really work and transform the meal from ordinary to delightful. Friendly staff. Everything is fresh and is so well done you can't really make a mistake!
