I had coffee black can't go wrong, friend had tea she was happy. We ordered a few desserts to share unfortunately they must have been sitting there a while, they looked pretty but were dry and unappetizing. What a waste of calories..........

Group of three couples for Sunday lunch. The atmosphere is great for conversation; service was excellent; and the food very good (some 'home made'). The only comment...helpings are not very large. I had a 1/2 soup and 1/2 sandwich combo. It was excellent, but simply...More

This is a very quaint, clean cafe. The menu is simple and healthy. I was very pleased to hear that the little treat in the display refrigerator which looked so delicious was free of refine sugar!!! It is so difficult to find sugar free treats....More

It's a quaint daytime restaurant with friendly faces, clean and fresh look. Lots of fresh made treats, but you have to get it when you drool for it, it may be gone when you change your mind.

This feels like a medium-end coffee/lunch franchise though, as far as I can tell, it is a one-off. It is seat yourself, table service with a small menu of soups, sandwiches (with a grill), and salads. The place is licensed. The decor was pretty cold...More

Had the Tuesday vegan special and it was delicious! I'm so happy that my little hometown of Belleville has a restaurant that actually gets that not everyone eats meat. So refreshing! The waiter was very pleasant. Oh and the meat eater of our group said...More
