Good healty breakast, very good portion size. Very friendly service. It is located in a food court so not the typical sit in restaurant but still very good.

What an AMAZING Find!!! I couldn't believe that you can get a meal on a real plate with real cutlery in a food court. My veggie wrap had a sundried tomato tepanaud and roasted crisp veggies plus a salad and fresh fruit for $5 bucks! Wow! AND this is downtown Toronto!! Incredible! It was really delicious. Thanks for a great... More

​The place is inside a food court but the quality of the food is far better than your standard food court fare. I had the huge breakfast meal, which the motherly wait staff gladly customized so I had a salad instead of pancakes.

This place got great reviews but I wasn't blown away. First of all, I am not a fan of having everything on one big plate. Also, I don't need super cold water, but the water was actually warm. A little ice could have gone a long way. I had the Vegan Goodness. It was very greasy and the garlic was... More

We walked a good distance to this place based on reviews. We were not disappointed with the food. We were disappointed that we were taken advantage of. Since they only take cash, we called ahead to make sure they take U.S. Dollars. The owner said she would. Our bill in Canadian dollars (after all the "extra" charges for Gluten Free-each... More

This place is located in the food court of village by grange. We ordered karines supreme breakfast, which was delicious and filling. Be sure to come here with empty stomach. They have vegan options as well. The pancakes are yummy. Overall, I recommend this place for breakfast.

The restaurant is a casual mall setting. I had the poached eggs and my daughter had a lunch type of meal. Both of us agreed the food was excellent. The owner served us and she could not have been better. I would highly recommend this place. An amazing find!

This place was a little hard to find. My husband and I had no idea it was located in a food court, but we're glad we found it. I have a wheat allergy so I rarely get to eat pancakes, crepes, or waffles. I ordered the banana Nutella gluten free crepes, and they tasted like heaven. The beautiful display of... More
