Great brunch

A great place for your brunch. Nice location in a converted home down in the hipster neighbourhood on Richmond Hill. Do keep some place for the great pastry!

We bought sandwiches there for take away. And they are the best in town. They really understand the business if you want crispy rolls as in central Europe.

Although the food is very good and well presented, the relative cost is a bit high, especially when buying extra items from the bakery.

We went for Valentine's lunch, it was full but not at its busy stage. The waiter greeted us (we were the only people outside in his area) we waited 10 min for menu's, finally I asked for some from another waitress. We still did not get any service so left without trying out the food- what a shame!

In PE I visited Vovotelo to have coffee and a brownie. The coffee was so nice and the brownie was so nice. The vibe is so nice and location is excellent! The service is great and its great for meeting up and having meetings I suggest you to goto Vovotelo.

Had there the brie/poached eggs on Sourdough Bread; very nice in addition to the salmon on Rye. The place has a lot of sandwich varieties + patisserie options. The blueberry pancake with mascarpone and lemon zest is a must.
