Ok, so they were trying some new things. We signed up for Valentines day first, and they were incredibly backed up, almost 90 minutes to be served. The waitress provided us a round of complimentary drinks to pacify the table. When the food arrived, one meal was burnt to the point it was inedible. To compensate, the waitress removed the... More

food is good, but when you are there for lunch need to give it lots of time as service is slow, this would be fine if time is not an issue, but when you or your guest has to get back to work, it is an issue

A great place for a business lunch. Boffins always features a unique twist of a special flavour on their menu items.

We have had brunch and lunch here a number of times on visits to our old home city, and Boffins generally comes through well. The food is well prepared, interesting, and tasty. Both the indoor, Arts and Crafts restaurant, and the outdoor, chunky-furniture patio are appealing. Prices are reasonable. It's a nice alternative to the other options on the University... More

This a fine lunch spot, located in the University of Saskatchewan's Innovation Park (itself an impressive spot). Boffins is a noisy place, full of scientists and business people discussing discoveries and business opportunities. The food is original and very good. The service is a bit odd -- overly casual and a tad unattentive at times -- but food is delivered... More
