For a few years, the Red Brick Cafe had been our favourite place to go. Great old building, interesting artwork, friendly staff. Lately though we've seen a considerable lapse in service on a number of occasions. It's as if the guys working there have forgotten that they're there for the customers. Loud music (turned up so they can hear it above the espresso machine), lukewarm lattes, and very little in the way of welcome or eye contact at the cash. Most times we've felt like we were intruding on their space. It's time for the owners to take a renewed interest in the place and improve the customer service. After all, the competition is heating up in the core. I hope they can find their way back.

Red Brick has a nice ambiance and nice rotating artwork selections on its walls.
It offers decent beverages that can be enjoyed both inside and out.
It's food choices are extremely limited and premade -- skip the food.

I love this place. Friendly staff, fantastic hot chocolates (I don't drink much coffee) and a great building to sit and enjoy if you have time. They are a bit expensive, but not at all when compared to other "luxury" locations like Starbucks. Overall fabulous!

food is fair and pre made. The place is always busy but for some reason not the friendliest of environments.

Always good, choice of sandwiches, even music sometimes. Great place to open up the laptop and noodle away.
