Driving from NYC to Alaska, honestly the best grub and fabulous presentation to date! The staff is friendly, food hit the spot, place is very clean and feels like we're in our own living room! Highly recommended, were grabbing food for the ferry to Alaska!...More

This is a great place to meet for coffee or enjoy a bowl of homemade soup and/or sandwich. Their waffles are wonderful, too The prices are reasonable.

The food is great and the staff are friendly and helpful. The décor is beautifully done and looks like you are walking into a coffee shop from the city!

Very relaxing place to enjoy a cup of tea and have a bite to eat. Free wifi was a nice addition. Wonderful selection of tea.

This is definitely a bright spot among very limited decent dining options in Burns Lake, B.C. This place gets packed at lunch, so a table might be hard to find. The fare here is not what you get at your typical soup and sandwich hotspot....More

This coffee shop was a great find on our way thru town. Coffee, muffins, and service were all excellent. Wished we had time to sample the rest of the menu. We highly recommend stopping in.

this little coffee place would be right at home in downtown Vancouver, great espresso drinks and amazing fresh cooked cinnamon buns and muffins ... only downside its not open early, right on the main road, worth a stop if you need a coffee driving through
