Quirky little restaurant that has delicious homemade soups and lots of healthy choices. Local art is displayed on the walls and there are earrings and other crafts made by local craftspeople. This place has a loyal following and a unique atmosphere. Always a treat.

247 Columbia Street. My wife and I have just come to Kamloops on the Rocky Moutaineer and tomorrow on to Vancouver. Needless to say the food on the mountaineer, in Gold Leaf is excellent and we were very well fed. We decided to have only a very light meal and walked the streets of Kamloops.

found a hair in my cookie on not one, not two, but THREE different occasions; on one occasion, there was 2 hairs in it. staff don't wear hairnets, tables aren't clean, & the food is highly overpriced.

I like coming here for lunch, wraps and soup with gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free options. They have great teas and coffees, and a really quaint ambience.

Met friends for a delicious homemade lunch at reasonable prices. Quiche and beet salad was excellent as was the coconut Thai soup served with cornbread. Delightful to have French press coffe made to the strength you like. Very friendly staff. Another addition is craft work made by local artisans for sale.
