Just had a very disappointing breakfast at Cafe chartreuse. The maple duck sausage was dry and unseasoned and poached eggs were terribly undercooked. The pancakes were heavy and the maple pecan butter that came with them was an oily concoction with barely a hint of maple syrup. But most disappointing was the ''baguette'. I know there is some debate about... More

Walked in for lunch the other day and noted there were servers, and more tables placed in the eating area. Sure enough, now there is table service. Menu provided was quite limited - with an abundance of dishes with eggs. I had a traditional caesar salad, but they couldn't add chicken so I added the boars bacon. It was pretty... More

We had a lamb burger and bison burger. That's all you get a burger and home fries (or salad) for $9.00 the bun was dry and so were the burgers (flavourful but dry). I was surprised that the only condiments were regular yellow mustard or Heinz ketchup. I would have thought Dijon or homemade ketchup would have been appropriate. just... More

Yesterday I stopped for a quick lunch at Cafe Chartreuse. The special was a Thai chicken wrap and it was out of this world. The mixture of tastes and textures made the wrap a taste delight. This is my go to restaurant for a quick bite, comfortable place to read and eat and great for take out.

Central downtown location, bright airy interiors, bottomless coffee and hearty comforting foods!! We had omelette of the day, poached eggs breakfast and fried eggs with homemade sausages - all good. Colourful local artwork on the walls added to the ambience!

Happened to be in Collinwood today and a friend recommended the cafe. The food was excellent, specifically the lamb burger - without a doubt the best burger I've ever had !! The staff were super friendly and attentive. Definitely a must stop if in the area, and well worth the drive if you're not!

The ordering "process" needs working on but this place is worth visiting if only for the excellent, fluffy, pancakes. Served with a light frothy maple syrup butter, I ordered a side of crispy bacon which worked fine with the cranberries in the pancakes. See photo. The chef delivered it to the table and with a smile said "breakfast of champions".... More

The staff were very friendly and efficient. The broccoli soup was excellent as well as the variety of salads. Family friendly as well even though we were just a couple on our own.

Loved their almond croissant and breakfast menu. Have to get there early because they ran out of this croissant but there are a good list of breakfast choices. Not too crazy about the decor but some paintings are OK.

I titled this review "A different experience" because my husband and I actually enjoyed our lunch here recently, which is a contrast to some of the reviews I have read. We ordered the mushroom cheese omlette, which was perfectly prepared: light fluffy eggs, surrounding tasty sauteed cremini mushrooms and melted cheese. The meal was accompanied by a delicious side of... More
