Good food, good service, lovely local meeting place!

I eat here a lot because I can depend on the fresh, locally-sourced (as much as possible) food. I'm from out of town and it's a nice place to meet someone for lunch or supper when I'm in Brandon. The salads are always bright and fresh - never any wilted or tired looking greens here - and the... read more

Thank you so much for your lovely review, we do try very hard to keep our products as fresh and as local as possible! I do agree that during peak meal times we can be a bit loud, those expansive ceilings are great for our live music and entertainment on the weekends but can create an auditorium feel when we...

The atmosphere is lovely, the food is well made and it just feels like a visit back home. I dare you to walk around the attached store and not buy anything. They have great gift ideas in the store and they do a lovely job gift wrapping.

The food is fresh, natural and free of GMOs. If you can, dine here before going to any of the chains that pepper the Brandon landscape.

Brandon has a restaurant that really doesn't get the acclaim they deserve my daughter granddaughter and I enjoyed a lovely lunch the soups was delicious the salads crisp and very enjoyable and the quiche melted in your mouth . Couldn't have asked for a better lunch never mind the excellent service.

My sister, niece and I ate here recently. The food was fantastic, we really enjoyed the wine and cheese salad as well as the sweet curried chicken salad sandwich. However our server made us feel as if we were inconveniencing here because we did not know what we wanted to order the moment we sat down, this was conveyed by... More

We stopped in for lunch on our way out of Brandon and were very pleasantly surprised. The cafe was bigger than we expected, but still had the feel of a small place. The food was interesting and tasty, and the side salad was nearly a meal in itself. There were also some great kids options, and a play area for... More
