I don't mind eating in dives, especially if a place has history or killer food. Unfortunately, this little cafe is dive-y with average food. The patties and samosas we had were dry. If you're dead set on having this cuisine, perhaps this will hit the...More

Delicious food, charming staff, and a unique setting. The samosas and jerk chicken were outstanding. Five marks out of five.

One meal was so salty it was inedible, 2 meals tasted like old bland stew, 1 meal was good. Service was poor, floor was dirty under counters, surfaces like sideboards and watercooler were dusty. Wont go there ever again.

If you want to know what the food tastes like: Head across the street to Fairways Grocery, pick up something from the freezer section and reheat it in a crappy microwave from the Goodwill. That way the service will be faster too.

James makes great food, with yummy soups, roti, samosas and patties. Intense coffee too. It's an international meeting place with interesting conversations, and food to go or enjoy at this cozy spot.

Went in because the smell was amazing and the bright colorful decor looked fun! The man who was working (I assume was the owner) was very relaxed, kind to me, and served me the food that I wanted! I got take-out but I would absolutely...More
