Grilled veggie sandwich on in-house baked bread, salad and butternut squash soup with a glass of wine was the perfect lunch. The waitress was friendly, attentive and very helpful assisting with our 97 year old birthday girl.

The location is perfect -- right across from the performing arts centre. If you tell them you're trying to make it to a performance, they'll make sure you finish in time. The food is excellent (try the charcuterie platter) and the atmosphere nice.

Lovely bistro located on wine route and across from the Performing Arts Centre. We carry a large variety of VQA wines, many by the glass and even on tap. Hard time deciding? We also offer wine by the flight. We also have beer and cider on tap. Delicious and fresh, join us for tapas, for lunch, dinner or dessert, you will not be disappointed. We also have a boxed lunch option.
