All around, this was a great find in downtown Sydney. The cozy location was complimented by very good service. Our meals were very good and would definitely return when back in Sydney.

Ok place. Clean, service was good. The peanut butter burger had way too much peanut butter on it, but otherwise was good. Don't think it was $10 good though. The bean and mango salad was good. My friends breakfast looked pretty good and they enjoyed it. I would try this place again probably.

This is a tiny place in Sydney to eat and it's mostly sandwiches, etc. The only saving grace in the summer time it has is that it adds a veranda to it's location on the road side and that is a nice touch, but to eat in, it's very tiny and there's no privacy.

The food was amazing. I had the special, Cecil Clarke nachos, which were wonderful. We splurged for dessert and had the ice cream sandwich, decadent! I never would have expected such good food here in this small town. There are several Flavor establishments, we ate here because it was cheaper than the one at the Pavilion.

We went to this cafe after getting no service across the street. The service was quick and friendly and the seafood chowder was great! A positive experience.

It must be three years since we were here and the standard was just as high with friendly helpful staff and a menu small enough so that food is great every time and made from locally sourced suppliers. Let's see what is will be like three years from now.

On a busy Friday night I was needing food, everywhere seemed full. This place was too and the customer vibe seemed good. Initially I was told by the lady that there were no tables; I was dismissed. I offered to wait awhile and was then told it would be at least ten minutes (is that all). Another solo chap arrived... More

Best wrap I ever had ! Still...atmosphere was a bit cold, for a small cozy place! Little hiccups here and there.

We stopped here for lunch and it was probably the best lunch we had in Cape Breton. The soups and salads were fresh, modern, and very tasty. This is a small casual spot, with very nice staff and terrific food!

We stumbled upon Flavor by chance. One of us is celiac. The other is a vegetarian. Flavor gave us both what we needed: fresh vegetables and hearty soups. If you are in Sydney and are looking for something sophisticated and refreshing in a comfortable atmosphere, I suggest you go to Flavor.
