Description: "New and Unique" that is what others are saying about The Essential Cafe & Bistro; from our organic and natural selections on the menu, to the classic modern decorating and the quaint court yard outside. It was our goal to bring a healthy, fresh, and nutritious alternative in comparison to the other restaurants here in the area. In addition, my business side wanted to create an intellectual, comfortable atmosphere where you can be proud to bring business colleagues or just catch up on some of your own work using the free WiFi. We hope you will come in and try one of our homemade hearty soups, or a refreshing salad made with fresh fruit or vegetables; or a freshly brewed cup of Colectivo coffee, or Rishi tea along with some homemade organic and non-organic desserts and bakery items. Our cafe/bistro is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals - if your experience here was worth talking about - please post a testimonial to our website and "like us" on Facebook! We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.

Went in for their 'last Sunday of the Month' breakfast brunch. Just incredible - the selection of foods, everything so fresh and homemade. Custom egg scramblers while you wait, the BEST quiche you will ever taste, yummy desserts and Alterra coffee. The owners are always there serving everyone and they are so friendly and just passionate about the food they make. The decor is warm and inviting and the small outdoor patio is just amazing. Next time we go it will be for dinner (Friday & Saturday's til 8) and I hope to sit outside. Great wine menu. The perfect place to go anytime you want exceptional food and service.

Stopped here with a friend for lunch and had an excellent meal. I had the Chicken Waldorf Salad on a croissant and my friend had a panini. Had a chance to taste the soup of the day a vegetable quinoa. It was the best soup I have ever eaten. The staff and owner were extremely friendly.

We stopped by on a whim for a quick coffee and were treated with excellent lattes. Essential Cafe brews Alterra coffee and the quality shows. I can't speak to the quality of the food although the menu did look like it had some light and refreshing options.
