The place has a great view of the falls. We like to stop by for a coffee and a snack after our morning run by the water. Good service and average prices for the area. Simple but good!

This was my first re-visit in a few years. I always love coming here. The atmosphere is great especially sitting outside on the patio overlooking the Falls, Rainbow Gardens and Oakes Garden. I was with friends and we were on the patio having late dinner...More

We called in and had chilli, it was served in a very shallow bowl with nachos, no rice or chips. The chilli was also just warm. We had a sandwich sitting outside at lunch time which was good but the meal at night was poor.

Quirky place, with average food, staff where nice enough, but would not recommend-sorry, the worst coffee I have tasted in Canada!
