This 'bistro' is part of the indigo hotel and is the simplest place to get a quick breakfast. We had a evening meal one night which was very nice and had our breakfast there on two mornings, it's nothing special but it was good food and good service and not expensive.

Truly the service for the breakfast buffet was outstanding. The eggs tasted like cardboard but they were edible. Smoked salmon was nice. Bacon needed to be extra crispy. Great selection of fine cheeses.

Great french toast. A bit light on the fresh fruit. Service was prompt and the server was friendly. Great place to eat quick if you want to get out and tour the city.

For dinner, the menu is limited but has the options of salads, and chicken, burgers, steak, and salmon entres. The portions are adequate and they are flexible in substitutions. It took a bit of time to get your meal even though there were only 3 tables. I ordered the salmon dinner where the vegetables were grilled and well presented but... More

A good breakfast spot when staying at Hotel Indigo, or walking in from the street! As a solo diner, I enjoyed breakfast here with no awkwardness for being alone.Seating was arranged to accommodate singles or small groups. Waffles with whipped cream and fruit and Starbucks coffee was under $15.

The food was ok. I ordered a burger and had the food to go (decided to bring it up to my hotel room as I had some work I wanted to get done while eating). Service was fine and I got a mini-ketchup bottle to bring up for my burger and fries. All in all it was an average visit... More
