I love bringing friends here to have 1 on 1 breakfasts/brunches, it's cozy, food is great (especially the french toast) & the staff is frendly and upbeat, although it might be early in the morning. I also recommend the chocolate cheesecake, it melts in your mouth!

I just wanted to find a breakfast place close to the Eatons Centre. This place was a very nice surprise. For a breakfast place it almost got a 5 but place was a little worn down. The menu was diverse, food fresh and service quick.

Service was fast considering how crowded it was on a Sunday morning. So many things on the menu, it was hard to settle on one. Coffee was good, potatoes were delicious.
