Stop in here whenever we fly into Vancouver Island. Great food every time we drop in. Good specials. Food is fresh and staff are friendly. Highly recommend but it is a busy place.

In from Toronto for a visit and decided to go because of good eating. Was not disappointed. Great 3rd St omelette. The service was excellent. The dark roast coffee was better than the medium but that's personal preference. The presentation was great as well The ratings were right on.

This is a very tiny restaurant! But as the sign states, they are short on space but big on taste. I was seated at the counter and ordered a steak sandwich. The side salad was a work of art with beet strings adorning it and perfectly ripe cape gooseberry jauntily balanced on top. It was delicious. Steak was smothered in... More

This is or "go to" place for a tasty breakfast and we always get a couple of tasty omeletes with several cups of dark roast coffee. Very affordable plus the staff are very friendly & helpful. Great dining experience & well worth the experience!!

This is the best little Cafe anywhere. Friendly staff, quick service, and very good food. We seldom go to Sidney without stopping here for breakfast or brunch. I'm sure their lunch menu is great too buy for us it's always breakfast.

Stopped in for breakfast while on the way to Victoria. Had a bit of a wait to be seated but that just means its a popular good place! The breakfast my wife and I had was awesome. Will be back next time we are on the island!

We love coming to this downtown restaurant for a tasty breakfast. Weekends are normally busy so you may have a short wait, however it well worth it! Staff are always friendly & helpful with assiting you with your dinning experience. I love the omelete with the freshly grilled pan fried potato.

Dropped into the 3rd Street cafe for the ist time and was pleasantly surprised.I had the home made soup and a grilled cheese and veggie sandwich. The soup was a meal in itself and excellent. The sandwich was also superbe. I ended up having 1/2 wrapped to go as the soup itself was so filling.
