Place was half empty when we arrived, no wonder. I ordered a Chai Latte, the 'Chai' part of the milk being nonexistent, the rude owner glared at me when i complained and tried to toss of an excuse of it being a 'homemade' recipe? Then why would you sell it? She attempted to remedy it after i insisted, what i... More

For the first time in my life my partner and a friend left this resturant without eating the meal. There was nothing wrong with the food. However the owner made everyone feel so uncomfortable over a small misunderstanding regarding the order that we counldn't stay. We paid for the un-eaten food and left. The owner was slaming down water jugs,... More

We were just wandering around town after a walk in the park. We couldn't put our finger on what we wanted for lunch.... We had walked past La Gourmandise the previous evening so gave it a try. Perfect for lunch, not too heavy but very tasty. I had a combination of walnuts, bacon and salad in my Campagne Gallette. The... More

I had been meaning to try this place for a bit and my friend picked it for our lunch get-together. The service was really good and very friendly. The food was delicious and affordable. Loved the combination of interesting ingredients and the variety of choices available. Will definitely come again.

I ate the goat cheese, apple, walnut galette (buckwheat crepe) for lunch. For the same price as a boring pannini, I was in heaven. The pancake was utterly perfect, cheese beautiful and melted just right, and the greens were crisp, tasty and stylishly dressed. As I had to leave Nelson the next day, I considered going back for dinner. In... More
