Looking for somewhere different for our Sunday coffee we passed Essen on Queen St. Easy to miss but really pleasant once you get inside. Good service in a restful, spacious setting. Nice big cold water jug to start with and coffee was reasonable. We did not have a meal but others' dishes looked attractive.

A small nice-feel restaurant with a good meal selection. We have only been once but would probably go again. Parking can be a little trick as it is on the main street and there is limited off-road parking. I understand that there is a room for hire upstairs

Had the place all to ourselves on a lazy Sunday and enjoyed one of the tastiest burgers I've had. It was messy due to its size and runny egg but I couldn't of been happier with it! Will be back to try more.

Due to the design of this place, tiles throughout, 2 levels and wide open its nothing but a huge conduit for sound to bounce. Very noisy, but if you have large groups or children who seem to be allowed to yell then you will be deafened here. The food was well portioned, tasty and plated well, our table had no... More
