We were very disappointed in our breakfast. The frittata was bland except for salt, under cooked, and a really small piece - esp considering it was 15 bucks. The french toast was 7.75 for 1 small piece... and it was raw on one side! Could...More

I had the French toast for breakfast, very good. They have lots of tasty treats. I got some oatcakes to go, also very good. The view of the river is great, considering how far back from the water it is.

Wife enjoyed good coffee while we waited for Fort George to open. Open, spacious, lots of upscale magazines, and free wi-fi. Would definitely come back.

We're a worker-owned cooperative whose mission is to serve delicious, organic food; foster joyful work; and build up our community. Every ingredient used in our foods, breads, pastry, chocolate, and coffee is sourced specifically for quality, wholesomeness, and sustainability. We foster kinship among workers, our regulars, and with our community by donating our excess to the tables of those in need; supporting our local schools, farmers, and nonprofit organizations; and offering cultural and educational events to bring people together throughout the year. Workers earn an average of $13.50 per hour, paid leave that is accrued after three months of employment, scheduling that is worker-focused and flexible, dental benefits, one staff meal and drink per five hour shift with a 30 minute paid lunch break, a 25 percent discount, a fresh loaf of bread per week, and access to wholesale ordering. The kin work involved in consensus-based decision making and management requires a commitment to communication and trust-building within the work community. What does this look like? Proactively seeking feedback before and after shifts, working – not only efficiently, but – mindfully, being a reliable person, reciprocating good will, giving direct feedback early and often, listening to seek understanding – especially in conflict, and avoiding victim mentality by being both vulnerable and accountable.
