“Great Salad!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

The place is really small and busy. However, the food is great. I had a great salad and soup. Is not expensive.

“Lovely spot for a casual bite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

This is one of my favourite places to drop in for a coffee when I want a unique atmosphere. VDG is always bustling with a great energy and it's fun to watch the regulars come and go during the week.

There's no table service. Find a table, go up to the counter to select what you want and place your order, pay, and then they'll bring your order to your table when it's ready. Anything you try on the menu will be a delight, but be forewarned they only serve breakfast items until 11:30, then it switches to lunch (not sure if that's also true on weekends, but definitely during the week).

Prices are not exactly for the faint of heart: A latte and a toasted bagel with cream cheese will set you back more than $10.

Try it!

“Delicious and Fresh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

Late lunch, early dinner found us looking for a place with quick service and not too formal. Seems as though we chose wisely. Vegetarian wraps were excellent along with the soup that came with it (carrot and ginger).
Hurried atmosphere but "hit the spot". Service just OK.
Would return for another quick bite.
