Diane and I are frequent TLT and Michelle's breaky/lunch customers about 3 times a month. The weekend Eggs Benedict are magnificent! Their coffee (planet bean) is unique and satisfying. Plenty on the menu that's healthy and tasty. Water is delivered with mint and chilled. Artwork and culture decorate this quaint establishment. Service can't be better. Cheers

I have been here a couple of times and never had a disappointing experience. I have tried the quesadilla, chicken and Brie panini and the pear-licious wrap. I would definitely recommend any of them. The staff is very nice and the service was quick. All food is house made and they took extra care in making sure my allergy was... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. It's small, but amazing. The staff is very helpful and the food is always fresh. My favourite thing bout the menu is that my meat eating boyfriend can order a delishious meal as well as myself who is a vegetarian.

We waited half an hour to be served. One of us went into the restaurant (we were on the sidewalk) to get served and were told it'd be a minute, but waited fifteen minutes after that. We would have left, but were too thirsty, hot, and tired. Eventually the sullen waitress came over to inform us that we might have... More

We are a quaint, soulful, independently owned cafe in the heart of downtown Barrie with a focus on fresh and conscious eating.

Open seven days a week we offer a breakfast and lunch menu that strongly emphasizes vegetarian and gluten free options along with locally raised, free range chicken. Everything is made in house including our sandwich bread which is a whole wheat focaccia & our soups which are always made gluten free.

The Lazy Tulip vibe is worldly, spiritual & funky. Music is a big part of the atmosphere which ranges from Indian tablas to local musical talent to current faves.

We serve Planet Bean coffee, a small micro-roaster from Guelph and it's full flavored, fair trade and certified organic.
