A Quick Lunch of good quality

We spend the afternoon in Niagara on the Lake and found The Epicurean by just passing by. We were three and all had a fresh Cesar Salad with Chicken. After we had a cappucino and some cold dinks. We all liked the place and specially the terrase outside. For a quick lunch the perfect place.

Lunch is run like a cafeteria--you choose your sandwich, quiche or salad and pick it up at the end. For dinner, it's run by someone else. Dinner took two hours; fortunately we weren't going to theatre. The panda cotta was awful.

There are a plethora of choices along Queen Street. We stopped in here, the outdoor area was attractive. Unfortunately there were limited choices for a pescatarian. Our food was average for the price paid.

We visit this restaurant every time we're in town. This time we had lunch. The cold soups are sensational, as are the sandwiches. The friend we met joined us and also thoroughly enjoyed his meal.

Very good food and service. Nice outdoor patio dining. Excellent frittatas. Baked goods all tasted homemade. Wait staff was very attentive. The outdoor patio was a lovely setting, lots of shade so it didn't get too hot.

Good menu options. We had a variety of salads, all very fresh. A must try is their homemade iced tea and lemonade :)

Great quiches, scones, salads and unique shepards pie. You order at counter and can take out to enjoy on their nice patio.

This is the perfect place to do lunch in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Once you get over the cafeteria line style, the food is delicious. Sandwiches are made with fresh produce and amazingly wonderful breads. The salads and soups are tasty. Can't go wrong here--something for everyone to enjoy.

This was a very pleasant restaurant with outdoor dining. Seeing soft crabs on the menu was a very pleasant surprise for someone from Maryland like me and they were good.

The food was served cafeteria style and was average but sitting outside on a gorgeous day just elevated the whole experience.
