“Great Sandwiches and Views”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

The location on the main drag can't be beat. I loved the bruschetta; and the salad that accompanied the sandwiches and wraps was fresh and good. I had the crab salad wrap. It was deliciously seasoned. The croutons added in the wrap worked my nerves a bit but the mangos made up for them. Service is quirky and they don't seem to know the difference between an iced mocha and an iced coffee, but they were a pleasant bunch of servers (everyone seemed to service your table at one time or another). Charlevoix is a cute walking town.

“Great coffee”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Nice for a quick breakfast in downtown Charlevoix. Pleasant but not fancy interior with table outside as well.

“Waste of time/money”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

The owner seemed so annoyed that I considered ordering something he'd have to make that I changed my order to get a pastry. They had a coffee bar, but when my wife ordered coffee they poured it from a carafe from behind the register. The pastries were fine, but nothing special. Considering the owner's pedigree (he has certificates on the wall from Le Gordon Bleu in Paris), I was expecting something more.

Reviewed June 18, 2012

Limited, small and expensive breakfast, but it was great. Sandwiches were much better. Nice place to go to.

“Food i good but service is quirky”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

We have tried several times but for some reason there seems to be confusion as to who serves who and the result is you don't get served. It is right on the main street in a good location. The breakfast was worth the confusion.
