Rented the upstairs room for a strategic planning day. This was not the first time and the service and good are excellent. I highly recommend their scones and anything on their lunch menu Will be going back again and again

Very nice quaint place for a meal. We went for breakfast and the eggs were under cooked, but that was just our opinion. If we had asked for them to be cooked well done or hard I am sure there wouldn't have been a problem....More

I had heard so much about this place from people so I thought I'd give it a try with some friends. Two of us are gluten free and dairy free and all of us love finding places that promote local produce, and ethically farmed meats....More

Timeless Cafe & Bakery is located in the original hen-house of a century old farm homestead in North Waterloo. Our Cafe is a hidden gem, surrounded by high-tech and other diversified businesses, and adjacent neighbourhoods. This beautiful old structure has been creatively restored by the Cafe owners, Jim & Lesley Brickman. The interior finishes and fixtures are designed to showcase the practical uses of reclaimed materials and architecturalStore Imagetreasures found next door at The Timeless Materials Co. The result is an original eating destination, in a warm and friendly atmosphere. At Timeless Cafe & Bakery we pride ourselves in sourcing the finest fresh, local ingredients available, as the changing seasons allow us throughout the year. Our fresh baked breads, pastries and healthy inspired offerings are all made from scratch. Our menu selections change daily, on the whim of our creative & exceptional chefs'. Since our quiet opening in mid-August 2012, we are fortunate to have been promoted by way of the most sincerest of compliments, word of mouth. We hope your visit will be a unique eating experience that will keep you coming back with friends, family and associates.
