Had lunch here with a few friends and wasn't very impressed by their very over priced and small lunch menu. My friend ordered the chicken and bacon sandwich. The amount of bacon in the sandwich was so small, it almost looked like a few bacon bits. Also, our waitress seemed annoyed and like she didn't want to be there. I've... More

Love this restaurant. Meals are good but the hilight is really the desserts. Amazing cheesecake and torte selections and diabetic options as well.

I have visited this restaurant on several occasions with friends...I have eaten breakfasts and dinners here, as well as evening coffee/dessert. Although the desserts and the selection of sweet treats ARE amazing, this downtown restaurant is mis-named - I think that the true beauty of this restaurant is their meals! My favourite breakfast is the eggs poutine - a creative... More

Love this cozy dessert place. Slices of cake are huge. About $9 per slice. Ok if sharing it with a friend. Pricey but good.
