In addition to the many enjoyable meals we have experienced at Esperance, in this case, Pram and Suzanne provide an elegant location for a private dinner - a wedding rehearsal dinner. Starting outside in the beautiful garden, the evening progressed through a wonderful menu that Suzanne assembled from both local farm produce, and supplemented with a few favorites from further abroad. Suzanne's creations were only made better through Pram's expert pairing of wine. Strongly encourage you to enjoy their wonderful restaurant whenever you can - it rivals anything we've eaten in Paris, Zurich, New York!!

Are you looking for an amazing dining experience? This is the place. Seating is limited so call and make a reservation for a mind blowing meal. Attention to detail is what sets them apart. The wine selection is endless and if you want pick up a few bottles to take hime. Staff is extremely knowledgable and very accommodating.

I've eaten Foie Gras at multiple places across the country, however, the generous portions I had at Cafe Esperance were the best I have ever experienced. The wine pairing that was recommended was world class and added another level to the meal.

Couple the incredible menu options and wine selection with absolutely outstanding, professional service and the conclusion is Cafe Esperance is one place you do not want to miss...

We stopped in for a mid-morning coffee and a snack. There are a few tables available for seating indoors and they have an extensive drink menu. The bakery selection is good and includes some nice treats. Service was a bit slow as there were only two people working behind the counter and it was a cool day (many people looking to warm up). Pricing seemed in-line with comparable shops.

The setting is intimate- few tables and there is only one seating for the evening so don't be in a rush. There were three of us- my wife, father in law and myself. We started with a perfectly made Rum Daiquiri, Absolut and a glass of excellent Chardonnay. The Amuse Bouche was delicious. We all enjoyed the Gazpacho with Shrimp. Two of us ordered the lamb but unfortunately there was only one order available, even though we arrived at 6:30. I switched to the Luna pasta and my wife had the chicken. All were done perfectly. Our desserts were delicious and the red wine chosen by Kyle was very good. The service could not have been better. It is an expensive restaurant- entrees run $39 to $59 but we feel it is the best restaurant Up North and well worth it.
