A real gem, over 40 years in business which is obvious from all the quirky furniture, fittings, art and books. Sandwiches come on the tastiest, thickest, freshest bread. Worth it alone for that. Oh and the carrot cake - even if you're full fins some...More

Dining in the shaded garden by the pond was wonderful on a hot day. Half sandwich, salad and gazpacho. Right by the 55 bus; near the Jeanne Mance park . Apparently the restaurant participates food distribution. Vegan and vegetarian friendly.

ice skaters don their equipment by Beaver Lake and its
pavilion, while the warmer months bring families and
