I foolishly invited a friend for a crepe dinner, having bought a Travelzoo coupon . The menu was different from the main menu, the crepes cold and without any salad or garnish and not at all tasty. Served profiteroles for dessert...likely poorly handled COSTCO product- soggy and tasteless. The dinner came with two glasses of wine- mine was terrible and... More

An art gallery with decent coffee and crepe to sit down and enjoy. Art for sale and a gallery in the basement with exhibition. The food is primarily organic with Turkish chocolates to enjoy

I found the Art Gallery Caffe a bit overpriced... for instance the turkish coffee. The quality of the crepes is medium to low. I will not return.

My friend and I popped in here 2 days ago for breakfast before going into the AGO. We both had a yummy veggie omelette and Kashmiri Chai. I loved the presentation of the tea. It was very flavourful too. This cafe is really nice, they've got great art exhibited as well. The staff is very pleasant too.

Art square is a unique place that really fits in with the arts scene of the Grange area. It's the middle floor of a converted attached home (as many of the businesses are in that area), so you walk up the stairs, through a front room gallery and in to a small room with a few tables and a big...

I had a Groupon for this cafe and I had to reserve to book it and when I called a person with extremely limited English answered at first just saying Hello and then realizing it was a business with the name of the cafe. I then asked if I could make a reservation with my Groupon, she asked what day... More

I visited the Art Square Cafe specifically because I had been searching for Crepe Suzette. Although not made and flambed at your table as in the fine dining tradition, it still made an impression. I just love the fresh orange and butter sauce. Of course, I found out that they are many other crepes available. My friend and I enjoyed... More

Dropped in for the gallery but was delighted to find a place to eat too. The space shared by gallery and cafe is bright and inviting and the menu very creative. Unfortunately the savoury, buckwheat crepe I had was disappointing. Salty and spongy crepe with hardly any filling was not what I expected or wanted and I'm surprised to see... More

We popped in here having just visited the AGO across the road. The venue is awesome - the cafe is situated at the rear of the art gallery - and the food and service was great. A good range of crepes, both sweet and savoury, and the service was really friendly - the man looking after us was happy to... More

The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
