My wife had the French Toast Trifle, and it was so good that tears actually came to her eyes and goosebumps rose on her arms, something that has only happened once before in her life. So thank you, Chef Mauro, for food so wonderful that we'll have a story to tell forever.

This tiny little breakfast place is easily missed driving down the street, and perhaps the locals enjoy it that way, cuz when I've gone, there's always a line out the door, or crammed into the foyer waiting for seats.
Went with some friends and left stuffed. Had the Threesome: pancake, scrambled eggs, bacon, fresh fruit garnish. My buddy had the soul in a bowl: which is kind of their version of a breakfast poutine- herb potatoes covered with brown butter hollandaise, thick cut bacon lardons (think chunks), and 2 poached eggs... he could not finish it!
The service was fun, a bit sassy, and fun to see a mixed crowd of hipsters, moms and pops, students etc.. enjoying their brekkie/brunch.
Be warned that you may have to wait to be seated, but you'll enjoy the food once you can plant yourself and enjoy.

Turned up at around 10am which meant quite a long wait (almost an hour) and we had to wait outside because there were so many people crammed together waiting inside. It might be better to turn up really early, or later because when we left at 11:30am or so it was still packed with a long wait. (Although when we left the staff were serving those in line coffee and cake so that was nice to see even though we didn't get any.)

Once we got seated our orders came quickly. The food was definitely worth the wait in line - generous portions and all delicious. Their spinache-feta-shrimp-tomato scramble was terrific. I've also never been given such a great fruit 'garnish.' We got 5 different kinds of fruit in good portions.

The service was very friendly and fast despite how busy they were and the prices were fair - they seemed a little steep at first, but after eating, it's completely justified.

Will definitely be back again, but hopefully earlier to try and avoid the traffic jam of people.

should be a Breakfast menu staple re:eggs benedict. I cant stop getting the chicken soul in a bowl its my favorite. Does everything right. I am seriously addicted to it and cant seem to go anywhere else for breakfast when the mood strikes. Before I found the soul, I had pancakes, waffles, benedicts, sandwhiches here. All great, but this sould in a bowl is where the best things happen. Soul in a bowl.

Very different menu - quite interesting and beyond the normal eggs, bacon etc. Very cosy atmosphere - obviously really popular due to line-ups. Very fresh ingredients and great combinations - visually pleasing on the plate. Very attentive service. Overall, can see why it received acknowledgement as one of the best breakfast places in Calgary
