Came here for a late lunch on a beautiful day, decided to take advantage of the patio and was not disappointed. Started with the mushroom truffle dip, highly recommend! It was served with both toasted focaccia and crisp "flat bread", followed with the turkey sandwich and fries, sandwich was great, little too much bread for my preference but otherwise nicely...

I've been here several times and mot business than pleasure although I've done that too. Most were lunches and a couple dinners. Really good selection of food, great selection of draft beer and good service add up to a nice place to go. It's not the most expensive place around but I would consider it upper end.

Stopped in here on the way home from a play in Toronto. Initially disappointed since the menu we viewed online was not the current menu. However, the server was extremely helpful and polite. Overall we enjoyed our food, Edie silly the duck wings, natchos and salmon

The Croque Madam is sensational! Nothing like the ones your grannies fixed you up at home this traditional favorite is reborn through the use of high quality ingredients. The gruyere adds excellent flavor, the biscuit is (I believe) made in house and it is all together quite filling. The Croque Monsieur is offered at lunch please do yourselves a favor,... More

We have been to the Bauer Kitchen a couple of times because of their Full Irish Breakfast with black and white pudding. Very good, but better the first time.

The Bauer Kitchen offers the great decor, food and service we in K-W expect & love from the Charcoal Group of restaurants. Bauer offers great lunch and dinner menus from pizza and pasta to burgers, sandwiches and amazing steak. The best Cesar salad in town! I finally tried the Sunday brunch menu with a group of friends. Lots of interesting... More
