“I would have breakfast here every day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

We really liked this place - a bit "bohemian" in terms of the customers and decor; paintings on the walls; classical music...

The doughnuts are freshly made and great - but really small (yet not expensive relative to their size). The doughnut sandwiches are larger, very creative and really good. Try the one with the guacamole... surprising in a doughnut!

The coffee was better than average, too.

“Expected more... for a brunch!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

I just visited Boris this week end. The ambiance was nice. The cafe was filled with people studying taking more spaces than they should have if they were just consuming food or coffee. The cafe was listed for place to have a brunch/ breakfast. The don donut/sandwiches offered are so tiny that youd probably need 3 to be filled, which makes a low cost brunch into a not so cheap one. The espresso is very bitter.

Really good coffee / home made donuts (yummy), fair price and nice (little) terrace. Quiet. Perfect for studying.

“Great Breakfast/Snack”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Anyplace that fries donuts to order is on my list of places to check out!
We stopped in around 11 on Sunday and were pleasantly surprised to find plenty of seating. The donuts were fantastic, warm, great texture, great flavour. Wonderful local coffee, and the service was great. The place has a fun funky vibe. It's in a good location too!
