Had a lovely lunch . Waitress was very nice ,food was good and service great. BUT hasn't anyone noticed the DIRT on the seating (banquet) against the wall? Gross. Very poor choice of material for something so well used.

Thank you very much for your feedback Julie. The material is indeed a tricky one to maintain, but we are looking into solutions and hope to remedy this as soon as possible. Cheers

Excellent coffee and Creative assortment of bites, with a lot of healthy options! Great selection of music. Would've rated it excellent except that the barista, possibly owner, went out of his way to be less than pleasant/communicative. Not that that mattered to us to much...More

The music is often loud, and every noise ricochets around the room - so it is not an easy place to have a conversation. Normally the coffee is okay, though sometimes it's been in the thermos too long and is room temperature. Stay away from...More

Easy walk in to town from Cabot Links hotel lodging. Operated by the hotel. Had breakfast 3 mornings. Breakfast sandwiches, eggs, scones, etc. All fresh and good. Also, good for lunch. Didn't try the pizzas but looked good.
