We visit the place on a Sunday for lunch. We came two families with 5 kids. The kids menu was good, had few options and came with drink and cookie. The waitress was very pleasant and the food came relatively fast. I ordered the grilled veggie wrap which came with a salad and was amazing. We ordered a quiche and... More

My partner and I stumbled upon this cafe for lunch while visiting the gem of a town that is Elora. I had a delicious and substantial Greek salad and he had the Farmer's breakfast. Both were very enjoyable. Service was quick, friendly and efficient and the prices were very reasonable. We especially loved the iced coffee! Would highly recommend this... More

Thankyou for your great review of our little Cafe. We really appreciate all the positive comments we receive for our food and service. Running a small business these days, especially a restaurant when there is so much competition is not an easy thing but good reviews like yours shows that we're doing OK. More

My friend and I ate here after visiting the annual Elora antique market, so the owner had almost none of the menu items available since it had been so busy! They were actually closed but accommodated us with what they had and very friendly. The space is nothing fancy, kinda country casual, but inexpensive. I had a substantial potato-leek soup... More

As we went off season, it was one of the few places open. I'm glad the others were closed because this place was a treat. Great lunch, fab cakes, good service. And good prices! Definitely recommend.

We intended only midafternoon coffee and dessert but ended up eating more because we felt so comfortable! As well, they were on the verge of closing and we were the only ones there, but the owner/hostess was so nice and accommodating that we wanted to spend more money! So we ended up with quiche and salad and veggie wrap (came... More

Because of reviews here on tripadvisor.ca, we decided this would be our place to have lunch when we were in Elora. The decor is lacklustre. The service is very nice and I probably had one of the best soups I've ever had (carrot with parsnip), but the quiche was heated in a microwave and the delicious crust lost it's texture... More

As we stepped in the door the staff were welcoming. We sat at the back bench, near the washrooms, but appreciated the space to spread out. The kids meal burger was good, served with potato chips and a chocolate chip cookie for dessert, also include a drink. Also provided a coloring sheet and crayons for our little guy. I had... More

I was supprised it was called a greasy spoon by another reviewer, I presume this was said because breakfast was served; however, I found it neither greasy nor spoony at all. It's an absolute gem.
