A great place to go for lunch when in the Downtown Kincardine area. Great service and great food! Their sandwiches and soups are always fresh and tasty!

Really love their breakfast here. Like that the homefries are not fried. Nice. Go on a Thursday, Gloria works then and she is the best waitress. Have gone here for some lunches. Feel that the breakfast is a better deal.

My daughter and I went for breakfast there this morning. They had no high chairs so I had to go back to my car and get my stroller. Couldn't get the homefries without mushrooms and cheese so I went with the pancakes instead of the normal breakfast. All you could taste was the baking powder in the pancakes, they were... More

This bistro is not fancy but the food (and food choices) are great! Service was attentive and prompt. Fun atmosphere - magazines and papers to peruse while waiting for breakfast. Would definitely go back!

I have breakfast here usually twice a week. Order the Saturday morning breakfast (available Tuesday to Saturday). It includes bottomless cup of coffee. Very nice presentation. Nothing greasy.

No burgers or fries here! Thick sandwiches with your choice of bread, served with nacho chips and dill dip. Breakfast is served with a few pieces of fresh fruit on the side, nice touch. Good service.

Visiting a friend at Bruce Beach and dropped into the bistro for a late lunch. We had a Reuben, black bean and goat cheese quesadilla and Waldorf salad respectively. The salad was super fresh, the quesadilla ranking up with the best ever and the Reuben one of the best of many that I've had. Not a fancy place but excellent... More
