Delicious food and good coffee! I had the dill tuna with fresh sprouts, tomato, and spinach on flax bread. Stacked high, it was good to the last bite! My husband enjoyed a ham and cheddar on sourdough. Our coffee was fresh and refills were available. Wish we had had room for the delicious-looking pastries - next time!

Looking through the options this cafe seemed like a good idea for a last day holiday breakfast and we were not disappointed. We tucked into pancakes with strawberries and bananas, Greek yogurt, granola and a side of dressed salad. Sounds weird, but it worked. The coffee was great too and the staff very welcoming. All in all we would be... More

Even my husband enjoyed the crepes. What a delightful experience. I wished we had time to try the soups and sandwiches but we were only visiting on the weekend. The ambience is ecclectic with art displayed on the studio side.it was a wonderful experience!

Not your average crepe restaurant. They make custom crepe creations that will melt your face. Quick service, order at counter and they bring you your crepe. They have great juice and tea options as well.

Quaint and little rough around the edges, but I did have a very very satisfying latte. In the heart of the downtown, and with free wifi. The art we thought was hugely overpriced, but that is so subjective. So who knows? We didn't eat, but would go back to try a sandwich or wrap - they did look very good.

Amazing salads, friendly staff, lots of natural light and room to linger over lunch or coffee if you'd like to

Fantastic, fresh food in a casual, comfortable environment. Sweet and savory crepes, plus a good assortment of fruits. Pumpkin spice latte was exceptional.

My husband and I stopped for lunch. We both chose a Rueben sandwich which was underwhelming, and overpriced considering it was small and came with no sides. However,we shared a chocolate dessert crepe with strawberries that was really good.

What a great little spot. The food was excellent and loved the gluten free choices. The staff was friendly and accommodating. When we were there they became quite busy and were not able to cover the gallery section. It w as nice after breakfast to look around at the various pieces being displayed. Definitely will come again

Soups and sandwiches super! Often a line to order but the service is pleasant and efficient. Popular with the locals. Plenty of indoor and some outdoor seating available.

Thank RSG-foodie
