This tiny little cafe is wedged into a hard-to-reach corner just south of Victoriaville, on Syndicate Avenue North...not a great neighbourhood and hard to find parking unless you use the parkade attached to the mall. (Try on some of the nearby sidestreets.) But the journey is worth it...it's that kind of homey, menu-on-blackboard place where everything tastes good and is... More

I had the Thunder Oka cheese sandwich on pumpernickel and carrot ginger soup. I finished off with a slice of zebra cake. Very tasty. It is casual, and they really seem to care about the food. Nice coffee, as you would expect. You pay before the food comes, which I dislike as I don't want to tip before I know... More

In the sketchy area behind Victoriaville but oh so worth it. Best sandwiches I've ever eaten on the most delicious bun / bread I've ever tasted. Delicious salad! May seem pricey but worth every cent!!

The food is pretty good and I usually stop in every other month when I'm in town, but the last few times I've found the atmosphere strained and awkward. They had a long-time waitress whose take on customer service was impeccable, she was always warm, welcoming and proficient. I've scarcely been back since she left, because the quality of service...

Had their: 1. Thunder Oak gouda with caramelized onions and cranberry on rye sandwich 2. Chicken with avocado and other stuff. Wish I also had their Asian salad. I would highly recommend this place to visitors. I'd go back there again myself. My only complaint would be that their water glasses are too small and since you pour your own,... More

I eat lunch here at least once a month - and have brought numerous out of towners - it is consistently the best in the city. reviews don't fully give credit to the variety, fresness and consistency of this restaurant.
