I visited this restaurant/coffee shop for the first time in April 2010, and was SO impressed. The location, Island Road near a garage, makes one apt to miss it initially!! The Black Dog Pub, well known and most popular local establishment, is across the road.
Yvonne's is instantly welcoming - the menu offerings are well displayed, one orders at the front, and food is brought to the table afterwards. The coffee is organic, and baked goods are made on premises (bagels, muffins, cakes, scones to name a few). There are daily specials on display, as well as appetizers.
I thoroughly enjoyed the mushroom soup and chick pea salad, served with delicious bread. The cranberry scone afterwards was terrific. The service was attentive, caring and courteous, while at the same time efficient.
Seating and tables are also "out of the ordinary" - comfortable large chairs, round tables, and, these are spread throughout the warmly decorated space. This establishment has strived to create a warm, soothing and relaxed atmosphere, and they have succeeded. This, combined with the delicious food and great service - makes for a wonderful addition to the West Rouge community of Scarborough.
Try a breakfast or lunch at Yvonne's! The hours currently (as of 2010 04) are: M - F, 7 am to 5 pm; Sat., 8 am to 5 pm; Sun., 9 am to 5 pm. They are also on Facebook, and host numerous holiday events.
