I'm always on the run for work and nothing beats good espresso and a variety of fresh baked goods to choose from to keep me running. I love this place.

Love this place, best go-to eatery in the Nish, just ask any St.FX student. The food is wholesome, nutritious and sometimes adventurous for an old gal. The couple who own the restaurant are wonderful and very hard working.

The morning muffin was delicious but the date crisp/bar stole the morning. Loved the way they served coffee in mugs. The baristas were calm, friendly and efficient. A great place indeed.
