So glad there is perfect lunch spot with great vegetarian options and fab coffee. We make a point of coming out here because the place feels like a second home. The food is creative and tasty. Check it out!

There is a connecting store with clothing for men and women . Free newspapers are available to share with other guests.The place is close to the old... More

after a lousy birthday brunch in the summer on their deck vowing to never return, my husband wanted to take a drive on a sunny New Year's Day-we ended up at Gan to give it another try ordered the brisket-it was accompanied by bottom of the bag potato chip pieces and a coleslaw of kale leaves floating in a milky...

Decided to stop here and grab some sandwiches to go while we were out for a drive from Kingston. Loved it. Thai peanut noodle salad (recommended by the very friendly woman working the restaurant) and two styles of pork sandwiches. Both my husband and I decided it was terrific and we will be back:) The baked goods looked amazing too.... More

The kids enjoyed the games and colouring books. The food was very tasty. Unfortunately there were several long waits before ordering. I appreciate the vegan options.

'Trendy' Socialist Pig, displaying a 5 star rating, in Gananoque, Ontario's quaint downtown stretch is a restaurant with a name that gives a bad correlation to socialists everywhere; the pricing is pretentious; the food mediocre and the service is an afterthought. For those who stumble into it -- us poor visitors, it's a one time deal -- and it certainly... More

I was there at the beginning of November with my two adult daughters. One day we stopped in for lunch and a second day for special coffees. One day one the restaurant side and one day on the cafe side. Both times the service was great and friendly, the food and drinks were tasty, and the ambiance was cozy. Glad... More

A bohemian coffee shop in the heart of the town and close to all the river action. The cubano sandwich is really good. Relaxed atmosphere friendly staff.
