My lunch at Tooks is always the best with the best price in town and amazing customer service. They always go above and beyond to make me happy there. I love how everyone is so involved with the customers and have a nice energy.

They have an attractive cook who's always smiling and makes the food delicious. He was working there in the summer but might not be anymore. I miss him. Totally have a crush.

This is a hidden gem on the corner of fort and cook streets. It's both a bakery and cafe. It has a varied menu for both breakfast and lunch.

Never been here before even though they've been on Cook Street a very long time. We were very surprised how large this place is because from the outside it looks tiny. Wonderful coffee and made to order sandwiches for us that day. We'll be back...More
