We stopped here while walking on the canal. It was extremely busy and fortunately it was warm enough to eat outside. Two people had croissants and I had a zucchini nut muffin, which was really good.

Had a nice brunch here (liked the bread with egg and avocado) and enjoyed the neighbourhood sitting in the sun.

The service was very good and food was delicious. Average serving sizes but still filling. Able to get coffee to go at the end of the meal, which was nice. Had the Cuban breakfast- very tasty. Plenty of vegetarian options.

Nice place. Good staff and service. Menu should be rotated more often. Always crowded which is a good thing but there can be a wait. Great for the area it’s located
