Up in the area just to get away from the big toronto city. Stumble across this delightful establishment. Looks small on the outside but you walk in and the place is equisite with a bonus upstairs that holds local bands on the Weekend. Greeted very warmly by our server Will, who greets us with a warm attitude and a great... More

My husband and I were touring the area and not familiar with any restaurants. We just drove past it and decided to stop there. A friendly and prompt welcome. Nice décor and ambiance. Felt very comfortable. Our waitress, Elizabeth was very friendly and attentive. She explained the specials and answered our questions about some menu choices with a smile (obviously... More

I sat at their bar with a friend for a good ten minutes with out any acknowledgment we were there. We walked out. Shocked because for a Saturday night it really wasn't that busy.

we stopped in for dinner after seeing the dinner feature which was a steak with shrimp. The ambiance was nice, the decor beautiful, the wait staff attentive. However, what was billed as an 8 ounce steak was, at best, about 5 ounces. The taste was average: nothing spectacular. The steak included 4 grilled shrimp which turned out to be 4... More

This was my first time eating at this restaurant. I will say the food was excellent. Our waiter however provided less than attentive service to our table. We had to ask for the wine list, had to ask for him to take our appetizer order. When we asked for our bill, he did not ask if we wanted it separated,... More

From the moment we walked in we were given nothing but the best service. The history and backstory of the bar and building was as rich and tasteful as the cuisine. Definitely enjoy the antipasti paddle if you stop in. The waitress even made me feel comfortable when I ordered the Louisiana gumbo and I suggested it was a unique... More

My husband and I went to Cafe 13 for lunch yesterday. It was an ok lunch. I had the fish sandwich which was tasty enough but too much bun. My husband had the lunch special which he said was good but did not look very appetizing! We only had water to drink and out bill was over $30. Too expensive... More

Looks like this place has seen better days. They may have given up all together. A good cleaning is in order. Until there is a major up date we will be enjoying the other offerings in Cambridge. The menu was as tired as the decor.

The ambiance here was very nice. It has the warm, cozy pub feel that I had hoped it would. However the food was nothing special and, in my opinion, overpriced. We chose of of the craft beers that they had on tap and were disappointed. We found the selection not to our taste which would have been fine had we... More
