Lovely little restaurant. Great food. Nice staff. I Like that you can see them cooking as you know how clean it is! Eggs Benedict is best in city Remember only cash though. No debit. But not a big deal at all

A wonderful little cafe that served very good food. Naan bread pizza with Pineapple Ginger Lime Soup followed by a Double Chocolate Brownie that would satisfy anyone's dessert cravings. All of this was, of course, enjoyed with a locally brewed Quidi Vidi Iceberg beer. Parking is a premium in the area so watch where you park, as well they only... More

My only complaint is the cash only policy. That being said, I was carrying a fair amount of cash but I was nervous that when taxes were added in, I might end up having to stiff the waitress a decent tip.

Gracie Joes is a unique experience. Meals a simple and tasty. The brownies are the best and gluten free. Not fancy but excellent.

Best Eggs Benny in the province! Great staff, great coffee, great location (easy walk to downtown, close to several hotels and there's a pottery shop a few doors down), and -- did I mention? -- wonderful breakfast/brunch.
