Stopped by Caméllia to have a quick bite. I had chicken wrap with french fries and a ginger tea. I spent about $8 for that. There is also a nice view and the personnel is nice and always ready to help.

I went there for brunch with a friend. The coffee was excellent, the food good. The prices reasonable. You have a choice of cosy romantic seats inside, and comfortable seats outside with a view.
