Some of the best coffee I've had - ever - and lovely pastries. The french toast, salmon and eggs, and croque madam were all great. Lovely staff. Laid back atmosphere. Opens early. Loved it.

Velvety smooth! This cafe was recommended to us and did not disappoint! The owner/manager chatted us up and was clearly passionate about this place. My wife was on a mission for Nanaimo bars, but I was not that excited about them --- until I tried...More
