“Excellent breakfast! Great coffee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Finally found a great breakfast spot with great atmosphere, great coffee (a great taste ratio of strong coffee to milk in my cappuccino), and a great breakfast.

My mom and I went here for a mother-daughter date. She had the smoked salmon with bagel, dill cream cheese, hard boiled egg. Was beautifully presented and was very flavourful. I had the Fully Monty which was huge! Sausage, peameal bacon, eggs, potatoes, scone, half a grapefruit and a coffee. Perfect!

We both loved it and look forward to going back. We've finally found our 'spot' :)

“Cozy for breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

I've been here a few times for breakfast with girlfriends, it's casual and cozy, a great place to catch up over coffee with friends. Their french toast is definitely worth trying, and they've got lots of other great items too.
I'll be back again soon :)

“A "Joint" Above the Rest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Friends who had been here for lunch were so impressed they took us here for dinner on a Friday evening. We were blown away by the quality of food, the non-gluten options, the quaintness of the place and above all else the excellent service we got from Kaitlan. Guelph does have some excellent restaurants, but we have a new favorite.

“Excellent new place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Experienced great food, lovely waitress and easy on the pocket-book! The atmosphere was nice - not too noisy and the tables nicely spaced apart.
