Great, tiny spot with tasty, fresh organic vegetarian Italian. If you don't have the lasagna (award winning) you're crazy.

Great little bistro. Everything is homemade and delish. Vegetarian pasta, sandwiches, great coffee and deserts. Small but homey and the owners are terrific.

I'm sad to see such horrible review about the place, it happens to be one of my favourite places for lunch in Toronto. The cafe is small and has a nice vibe to it and the people who sit around you are generally really nice. The owner is a nice guy too, always talkative and friendly every time I've gone.... More

It was very disappointing to see plastic bags from China town and cheap oil next to the stove, even though they are supposed to be all organic in the cafe.I remember he used to cook cheese a lot, but now No cheese ,...
