They bake their own bread!! It is fantastic! Get the turkey Swiss or ham and Swiss.. Also their mustard is amazing too.. Also, great coffee.. Not a fan of their orange pekoe tea though.. And I wish they were open a lot later.. But definitely worth visiting

Stopped by for a sandwich and a lemonade--needed a break from unpacking! Absolutely fantastic turkey sandwich on fresh home made bread. Busy with constant customers moving through but the staff were very friendly and patient with everyone.

No matter what I tasted in this cafe is always fresh and delicious. Starting from the fresh bread and sandwiches to the soups, quiches and frittatas. I love to go there for a coffee on the weekends with my friends because we know we always have good quality food for a reasonable price. One negative point is that they close... More

I visit both locations on a regular basis and am totally addicted to the date scones - however, I wish the regular coffee was stronger. Service is always excellent.

this warm and visually attractive place bakes a number of unique pastries. The Cruffin as its called is a very tasty cross between a croissant and a muffin. It took my sister from BC to find this wonderfully tasty treat. I went the next day and bought 2 myself.

I'm a barista myself and had to check the place out simply because I haven't been. I judge a place by its coffee just because I've worked in the industry. I had a first date at the Richmond Street location. It was pretty crowded but the outside patio was free so we sat there. It was a little bit cold... More

This a very quaint place to have a very good lunch or a quick coffee with something sweet. Excellent fresh soups, salads and french quiches.

I just tried this place at lunch as I was in the area. Was a beautiful sunny day and many were out on the side patio enjoying themselves with lunches, pastries and coffees. I was not sure if they even served hot lunches but was pleased to see quiches, fritattas, soups and sandwiches on the menu board. The aroma of... More

We were staying at the Idlewyld Inn nearby and decided to take a walk to this cafe. What a great place indeed. Super fresh baked goods and fresh ground coffee. Friendly people in a Wortley Village too. Cruffins and butter tarts are second to none here!

Café-wise it's awful, but it still remains a decent spot to sit down (when you can) and socialize. The food is alright, but inconsistently edible. It's a place I will not go out of my way to visit.
