Delicious! Loved the haddock. It's well presented with rice and seasoning. My friend had the burger and she said it was one of the best. Apparently the pulled pork sandwich is excellent too! Cheers...

Our family had an early dinner on a Sunday about 4:30pm. The parking lot was almost empty which should have been my first clue. Our waitress who spoke with a heavy accent, which is normally not an issue, spoke much to quickly and had to repeat herself as we were not able to understand what she was saying. Our spinach... More

This was my first time at this restaurant. I live not far from it, and never knew it was there, That is because it is a hidden gem. I have no idea why they called themselves a café. It is anything but. It's too luxurious to be called a café. It has a Greek theme décor. The chairs are upholstered... More

We had both a late afternoon snack and returned for an evening meal another evening at this restaurant recently. Staff were helpful in identifying gluten free options for one of our party, who ended up ordering the steak dinner, which he said was tasty. The waitress was on the mark in noticing that the steak had been prepared with a... More

Heading home and planned to go to the Vicar's Vice but it was closed so we discovered this place. Service was warm and inviting. Food tasted homemade. They are part of a chain so we would consider trying other locations closer to home. Not a bad choice. Apps are pricey but there are some good specials and they treat you... More
