We went with a group of 5 of us. for comfort food - the portions were small and averaging $17 a plate (bowl). Came away still feeling hungry.

This is a great place to eat... but you might have to wait to get in. --- thee is another coffee shop next door if you need to and it's also OK. But I try to go to Burgoo for Brunch or Lunch as often as it is possible. Food is wonderful and feels like it was cooked just for... More

We went on a rainy public holiday for lunch. There was a line up and I was told that the wait was 30 - 45 min. We walked around main st and were seated at the bar within 45 min. The chairs were really comfortable. The menu has wonderful comfort items, soups, sandwiches, salads and casseroles. There was a brunch... More

We went in for something light so I ordered the Bistro Salad with mixed greens, tomato, cucumber and their house vinaigrette. It was a perfect size and tasted unbelievable. Some friends had the kale and quinoa salad and raved about that as well. The service was awesome as well. I would highly recommend it.

If the other four are as good as the Main Street location, you'll be well satisfied with any of them. There were three of us, and we ordered a veggie sandwich with salad, Eggs Ratatouille, and a Shepherd's Pie. All were excellent, served by a friendly and efficient server, and in a unique surrounding that looked like it might have... More

We enjoy this place every time we go here but get there early as there is usually a line up to get in. Our favorite we order every time is fonduemental to share and it is eaten up to the last drop, chicken Itza soup that is just enough to warm you up, french onion soup that is very cheesy... More

The food was delicious, the appy could use some spice. We had Tuna - poke - was a nice treat. The chicken sandwich was good. The Kentucky burgoo - stew was delicious - ordered pita with it - was plenty and tasty. We would recommend this place for lunch or dinner. They have drink specials. The waiter was very friendly...

If you can't find anything inspiring in this menu, you must be from another planet. Extensive, wholesome food to please every taste. We opted for the classics, Mac and cheese and Shepherds pie.WOW both were excellent. It's the first time I have had Mac in about 10 years and I know I will be disappointed next time, this set the...

Came here for brunch. Small brunch menu, I'm led to believe this is a better establishment for lunch meals. Our friends are frequent visitors to this resteraunt and the waitress recognised them. Adam and I (Jo) ordered a potato hash bake (think scrambled eggs on top or a bed of potatoes in a hot pot with hot sauce throughout). The... More

The ambiance is kind of interesting, fun, a place you want to go every now and then; the food is tasty and interesting, something for anybody. So this could be a really cool place. But they are just a tad on the miserable side with proportions. Guacamole dip was very nice but it looked like somebody individually counted the nachos... More

Neighborhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
