We decided to hit up this place for Sunday brunch and it was perfect. What a selection for drinks and food! Very cozy inside - be prepared to share a table or potentially having to eat outside or take your meal to go. It was super busy but the wait wasn't too bad. The quality and quantity is totally worth... More

What a great little place for breakfast! This cafe style restaurant has a large personality for sure. The service was fast and friendly, and the food was fabulous. The prices were very reasonable as well. Will definitely go back.

We stopped in just before closing but they were still happy to serve us and let us stay as long as we wanted to finish. I had the chicken club and my husband had the huevos rancheros. Both were delicious!

Excellent morning pastries and the best potatoe hash browns we had in Canada, amazing! The portion sizes are big too. Worth the short drive to visit, get there early to avoid the queues.

Even though it had been more than 3 months since my last visit, they recognized me... More

Yes, it was busy, but it was worth it. The staff ran the place like a well oiled machine, quickly getting their delicious breakfasts out to their hungry guests. Our daughter played with their chalk board letters and also enjoyed the giant dinosaur they brought to our table so that their server knew where to deliver the food. The food... More
