Casual Elegance!

Always worth a stop on our way to Toronto, this tidy spot is a must. Their coffees are amazing and the servers know their stuff. The 'Notorious' blend is my favourite. And if you're hungry, the sandwiches and quiche are amazing.

What a delightful surprise. Today I discovered a little gem in Oakville. The cafe is fresh, uncluttered and has an interesting, but small menu, which is at it should be. Although the soup looked delicious, I did not have an appetizer, but ordered the curried cauliflower salad. Loved it! There was a generous salad portion with the cauliflower served alongside...

I really appreciate the quality of food here but I'm upset with customer service at this cafe. I came in at 3:30pm for a late lunch. I stood in front of the cashier who immediately said to me, "the kitchen is closed". I asked what time they close, and was told 4pm, but the kitchen was closed at 3:30pm. I... More

We went for Sunday brunch, ( 3 people ) the place looked amazing with its fresh reno. Lots of bright sunshine pouring in through the floor to ceiling front windows. Unfortunately the service was very poor. Perhaps early growing pains ( the place doubled in size ),,,, and it was WAY overpriced for the small portioning. We waited to be... More

Creative and tasty menu, but small servings with high price tags. Lots of twists on some classic dishes. Fresh. Lots of gluten free options.

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. Loved the food and the upbeat, bright atmosphere. Was excited to see the new renovations. Unfortunately, although the place looks amazing. Was disappointed to see that they changed the menu and took off several items. Took off my favorites as well as my daughter's. So if you are vegetarian, you will... More

Our party of six went for a Sunday breakfast. Started with a 30 minute wait to get a table. Interesting menu. We each had a different dish and everyone was pleased with theirs. Food is well presented and service is fairly quick. The price of each dish is steeper than other breakfast places to start with. Then you pay for... More

Apparently the Kerr Street Café has recently expanded to take over the space next door. Good thing, because we have been twice now and the place was packed both times. The menu is unique and interesting; more importantly everything we've ordered has been delicious. Their coffee is also great. A wonderful neighbourhood establishment.

I love the coffee and the environment this has. It may not look much but has a great vibe. The pastries and good value too. Highly recommended.
