We were walking towards Chinatown on Baldwin avenue looking for a good brunch spot on a Sunday morning and we came across this place. It seemed cute and had a nice patio and so we thought that we would give it a try. We were definitely glad we did. The menu was good, featuring a brunch selection of sandwiches, breakfasts,... More

Came across this little Gem on Baldwin Ave completely by accident. Friendly staff with an great vibe. Had one of the Italian thin crust pizzas and it competed with those in Rome. Great little front porch for a beverage or an espresso to people watch. Even better there is a private back patio that would be great for a small... More

We came by around 4pm so the full menu was not available. We tried two of the veggie pizzas and they were great (with the exception of the ingredients falling off which was annoying). We ordered bruschetta which came out much smaller than I expected and the pizzas were more pricey than I would have liked. Not accessible for wheelchairs... More

I had dinner there last week. The dinners were priced at around $20. The restaurant has a small patio (4 tables), and with great weather it is nice to be outside on this street that had very little vehicle traffic on it. It was a good experience and I would consider it again.

This is a great restaurant with friendly staff. They purchase their meat from a supplier that ensures it comes from animals that were treated humanely. All of their food is fresh, and the wine selection is good for a smaller restaurant. Good people-watching from the patio!

Just had lunch here. Service was good enough, although my friend had to ask twice for the hot sauce which finally came half-way through her meal. I had the Mediterranean pizza and it was brutal. The crust was overly crispy and the tomato sauce on it very acid. A few chunks of tomato seemed to make up the topping. Won't... More

Casual bistro in Kensington area. Small and cozy. Popped in for dinner - no reservation - no problem. The Mussels Marius was great as was the penne. Service was good. Didn't feel rushed. Fairly good wine selection. Would recommend a visit.

Very cutesy place, classic Baldwin appearance. Great soups, sandwiches, salads. Recommend the warm Brie with bacon salad, which was top-notch in my opinion. The service is good, kind waiters. The outdoor tables are small and cute. Great date place.

Popped in for lunch. Atmosphere, service and food were great. Started with the soup du jour and Had the the Mussels Marius as the main with a side of garlic bread. The mussels were listed as an appetizer but the portion size was definitely large enough to be a lunch main course!
