I think I've eaten lunch here three times and about to go back and buy one of their frozen tortieres to take home. Set in a factory styled building in an ugly out of the way part of town known as the City Centre you'll find the 'Art Is In Boulangerie'. Essentially this is a bakery with a cafeteria at... More

This bakery is really awesome. It has so much character. Fresh bread and fantastic pastries. I loved their breakfast menu and the freshly squeezed orange juice. I also ordered a latte and it was great. Beleive me, I know a good coffee! So if you want to hang out with friends for breakfast and spend anything from $5 to $40... More

The atmosphere is on the austere side, setting up a restaurant in what was in other years an industrial operation. You have high ceilings, cement floors and cinder block walls, but that is all part of the charm of the place. The seating is laid out on picnic tables where you can share seating with other parties. It is a... More

Let me start with: My friend and I then shared a chocolate Cronut and it was D E L I C I O U S! I definitely recommend trying it. It might be too big for one person alone but yummy nevertheless. Fast paced, buzzing atmosphere. Don't be put off if the line is long or the place looks busy,... More

A friend took me there to try the freshly baked croissants with a café latté mid-morning during a week day. I understand that there a line-up at the door on weekends. The decor is very plain but the food and coffee makes up for it. I plan to be back.

my favourite place; the food is great and has a great atmosphere because of the large, industrial-looking open space; sometimes you have to wait a bit for a table, which could be annoying for some people

This place is the best, most restaurants source their baked food from here so just go right to the source. The breakfast sandwich is delicious!!

My wife and I go here semi-regularly and always love it. The meals are amazing and the baked goods are beyond belief - it makes it hard to leave without spending a lot of money, because you just want to try it all!
