“Healthy and delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

This small but cosy restaurant is located in a quiet neighbourhood. Getting to the parking lot behind the restaurant is a bit of a challenge, but do not give up because the food is worth the trouble. John, the owner and cook, whips up delicious homemade style soup and sandwiches with all the right touches. The salad comes with a light delicious dressing, hands down, my favourite among all the entrees. Homemade pies and cakes are also a specialty here. Some say the menu prices are too high for sandwiches, soup /salad ( mostly around $16 plus taxes ). I believe it is worth it for the healthy and scrumdelicious food.

“Slow slow slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

A great place when it opened. Service has slowed. Today I was in and there was 1 waiter for 23 ppl. Last time I couldn't even get water as a LOUD party came in. Good food, not cheap, service has gone way down. I hope they fix it soon.

“Nice ambiance and good service, food was ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

A cozy small restaurant with attentive and corteous service. Food was ok, honestly, nothing special. However it seems to be very popular (apparently mostly elder female customers).

“Perfect breakfast, brunch, lunch...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Well conceived and prepared home made foods - really extraordinary attention to egg dishes, terrific sandwiches, innovative salads, and the even the potatoes served with most breakfast dishes are incredible.

Add to this great service, good pricing and oh the pies - seriously so good.
