“A hidden Gem”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

What an unexpected pleasure! In this small northern town on business, I happened upon this quiet, little gem on the main street. The menu is small and changes daily. It is open for dinner only. Everything is "made from scratch", including condiments, sauces etc . Presentation was excellent and my meal was fabulous. Dessert was the icing on the cake. It was an ordinary sounding cinnamon raisin bread pudding- but it was unlike any other I have eaten. Indescribable.
can't wait for the next time that I am in town..

“AMAZING!!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Nice to finally have a restaurant locally of this standard. Great ingredients, fantastic presentation and it all tastes amazing! Tried a few things already and can't wait to go back. Also nice to check on facebook for the days menu too. Hope this restaurant stays around for a long time.

“The Dish”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is a restaurant located in northern Ontario daring to prepare dishes the way they like.. the food is delicious, original and organic.. it is a quiet low key artistic environment.. A small menu, maybe 8 items all prepared in a kitchen you can see.. the service is friendly and you feel like you are at home..

“Tired of food at chain restaurants?”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Very unexpected lovely surprise in downtown Kirkland Lake. Would fit right in downtown of any big city. Clean and lovely. Service was excellent ( by owner).Everything made on premises by chef ( owner). Cauliflower and apple soup included a small hot fresh baguette. Tea was served in real china teapots- a welcome change from metal ones. Would come back here any time.
