I was looking for a lunch place to frequent in a friend's neighbourhood so we tried out the Village. He'd been there a few times but didn't seem that enthused about going again. The menu looked great so I really wanted to try it out....More

My husband and I both ordered eggs Benedict. His with smoked salmon and mine with sun-dried tomato. Instead of an English muffin, these "Bennys" were served on latkes. Delicious and gluten free (although that isn't a consideration for us). Good coffee and friendly service.

I’ve been here a couple times. It’s a treat to have a delicious gluten free sandwich! Even the accompanying house salad is delicious... grated carrots and beets and chick peas and feta to top it off. Excellent service and great location
