“Excellent,freshly cooked gourmet food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

The brunch here is wonderful, the portions are very generous and everything is so fresh.
As a vegetarian I had so much choice and locals frequent the cafe lunchtimes during the week too.
The atmosphere is cosy like an osteria and is worth waiting for a table. The service is very friendly and personal as it is family run.
If I lived closer I would go weekly. Breakfast menu served until 4pm and excellent value $8 for an omelette, $10 for burger and fries.

“Out of the way little charmer.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

This small restaurant is a favorite of the neighborhood and for good reason. The food and the service are very good and the staff is very accomodating. You will dine with families, couples, friends out for the night. The menu is very varied and everyone will find something they crave.
Many of the ingredients are organic and the daily specials are always a treat. The only drawback is thier wine selection. There is no selection. They serve a Cabernet, a Merlot, a Chardonney, a Moscato, and a Pinot Noir. The wines were good and inexpensive, but not for those who enjoy making their own selection. They do however have a good selection of beer. They only serve wine and beer, so it might be best to have your cocktail before you arrive.
Oops, almost forgot, they only accept cash, but for 5 adults who all had wine and one child the tab with tip was roughly $70.
