not cheap eats by any means but well prepared and "healthy" fare. I had a Greek wrap which was as it should be, and a slice of tiramisu cake which was huge and delicious

Fresh ingredients and a bright location near cutesy shops. The desserts in the deli case are mouth watering to view and I couldn't resist the layered coconut lime cake. So good!

As Italian, I appreciated so much this place. The quality of the foods was very high and the ingredients very fresh. The owner was very kind and she gave to us a taste of all the soups.

Each time that I visit, I end up ordering the very soup that I thought that I would least like. This is the ONLY place that I have ended up thoroughly enjoying soups such as tomato, and most recently, the sweet potato with coconut and the red pepper soups. It is absolutely delicious and freshly made without preservatives or additives.... More

I have eaten here a couple of times and eaten their catered lunches at work. I find the food bland and not all that special. The place is clean and bright, its in a good shopping area.

The food is fantastic. We have been customers of Real Food for many years and it's been a favourite all along. Their Stews, Soups, Salads, sandwiches all very good, the deserts are absolutely to die for. We highly recommend Real Food, it's consistently good, lots of options to choose from its clean bright and a comfortable place to dine.

lunch at real food was soup and sandwich. Delicious cream of celery (!) soup with a kick. BBQ chicken sandwich also had a kick and was good. Chicken stew also very good. No atmosphere but solid

I have had the pleasure of enjoying several lunches over the past few months. Home made soups are available everyday with a wide variety of choices. The tossed greens are to die for - not sure what is in the dressing but it is fabulous.

Maybe just a bad day and poor choices but did not enjoy lunch here except for the cake. Others mentioned the soup shooters - I tried one, a spicy bean soup. The taste was good but the beans were slightly undercooked. Yech! That gritty, starchiness. Opted for a sammie - BLT with sundried tomato mayo. The sammie was good but... More
