The walls could use some artwork as I was looking at a blank wall. The restaurant was clean and the chairs were comfortable. We arrived for our 10 am reservation and the place was completely empty. We were thinking..this place can’t be very good if it’s empty on a Saturday morning. We decided to try anyway and we’re glad we did. We both ordered the crab cake Benny and it was delicious. For me it was basically the only option as I don’t eat wheat and they had no gluten free bread. Other than a small gluten free pizza, which I did not want for breakfast, they are behind other restaurants as most offer gluten free bread. We enjoyed the breakfast but I don’t think I’ll go back as my options are too restrictive.

Booked for casual Mothers Day experience. Large portions of food, attentive service, creative presentation. No one at our table was able to finish their food due to large portion sizes, yet all were happy with food quality. We were in and out within an hour yet didn’t feel rushed at all. This is definitely another restaurant to add to our list.

The pizzas that we ate were very good. We went for the Traditional and our friends went for the Hawaiian. Very good and a do over. The Caesar salad was a disappointment. We plan to return to try their smoked meat sandwiches and for breakfast.

Our waitress was very good looking after all guests at her tables even though it was crowded. The food was good, I think everyone was satisfied but many did not finish as quantities were quite larges.

The food here is really good! The Montreal smoked meat and crepes are the best in the city! The hashbrowns are seasoned fantastically and cooked to perfection every time. The attention to little details is great at this restaurant. Coffee is great too, never burnt nor bitter tasting. I have had the same meal four times already and am still not tired of it, never disappointment. I have come back on multiple occasions with family and friends and they are also blown away by the quality and tastes of the food.

Amazing service and great food! Place is a little loud, just because of how the space is laid out. A little cold on a winters day too! Otherwise, good coffee, great portions.

The waitress was very inattentive and all over the place. It took forever for her to take our order and there were no other customers. Then after clearing our plates, it took over 20 minutes for her to bring the bill. The food was decent but terrible service.
