My husband and I had a delicious brunch at this restaurant this past Saturday. Food was terrific and the service was friendly. My husband had the pancakes-said they were the best he’s ever had-quite a vote of confidence from a pancake specialist. I had the smoked salmon on rosti with poached eggs beet tepanade and creme fraise. The scones are also yummy. Lovely funky place. We will be returning very soon.

Look the look and feel of this place. Service was excellent! Very attentive. Loved the wine, cheese plate so so, lentil chilli was tasty but WAY too much sauce. I will go back and give it another go!

Second time back, Still love the ambience, but food is moderate at best. The white bean dip is not good, flavorless. The cauli app is so small and okay, not worth the $12! I would go back for drinks…..not ordering food ever! I really like the vibe of the place and the location. And today’s service was not as good as the last time I was here.

We met friends for dinner before the theatre and were on a tight timeline. The service was expert – friendly and relaxed in feel while crisp in timing, getting us to the show on time. We all appreciated the beer and wine recommendations. Everyone enjoyed their food – from a great hand chopped burger to steamed PEI mussels. Our guests were thrilled to have been invited and we have already planned to return.

Food and service was great. Would definitely eat here again. Two people, apps and mains with one glass of vino for $120 including tip (20%). We dined in the back portion of the restaurant and it was nice and quiet. The front part didn’t seem too bad, but it was definitely noisier.

Experience was good overall. We were there for brunch. One thing I thought I would mention was that if coffee is not bottomless it should be mentioned. (Most brunch/breakfast menus offer this)

Been there several times. Generally always good. This time only, the meal could have been better. I ordered a braised beef which was tough instead of falling apart tender.
