Food is great! I had breakfast here several times and the food has always been excellent. Service is by counter, however they bring your food to you. Atmosphere is very open.

We called in because we were told this was the place for the best nanaimo bar in town. We weren't disappointed. It's a cute little place with friendly staff. We ended up also having some coffee and french macroons. They were quiet good but I little dry but all in all we had a good visit.

This is by far my favorite breakfast place in town! I've enjoyed every dish I've tried here so far and the baked good are delicious. The only negative comment I have is that it is a little pricey for the amount of food that you get. It's a nice and comfortable place to for a treat but don't expect a... More

Excellent coffee and very lovely authentic French baking. We use to go regularly and the owner is a friendly lady who always treated my little boy to a Baguette that she would watch him devour with or without butter right then and there! He is 20 now and still remembers that!

Friendly owner welcomed us - like being at the market - explaining all the different kinds of pastries she had, croissants, danish, eccles cake, Hot Cross buns. You can take bakery goods home, or eat in the restaurant. We chose to eat in, for breakfast. I had the Vegetarian baguette sandwich, which was really good, on fresh baguette. My daughter... More
