“Very good food for the value”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

This is a small take out place of specially made daily dishes. From vegan, vegetarian to fish and meat lovers. There is something for everyone. The place is divided in two. On one side savoury dishes and the other sweet. There are a few tables inside to eat and on their front veranda (not in winter). The food is prepared fresh daily and is very good. It is located on the northeast side of Rideau St. in an old victorian house.

“Great place for a quick bite”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

Nice soup and sandwich combos, home-made at a reasonable price. I like the colourful plates they use to serve the food in! They do catering, but I have not tried that yet.

“Always great”

I have been eating here off and on as a treat for years now. It has never disappointed me.
The food is always great and everything else that goes with it.

“It was good with the previous owner”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

On the first of May 2013, my daughter and I got the brisket sandwich and we both got sick. On the seventh I told my brother to be careful with the meet sandwich, but he got the pork sandwich for lunch anyway. He notices that the pork wasn't completely cooked and he disposed of half of it, but it was too late. During the night everything came out from both ends. He was very sick and since he was here from Montreal on a job he couldn't finish it and had to return early.
The owner of this restaurant should be arrested for being so careless with is food.

“New ownership, big changes”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

The transfer of ownership from an original owner to anyone new is tough, but to do this while keeping 75% of the staff (100% of the good staff) is even tougher. I've spent years coming to this place as a customer and have seen both sides of the staffing and the ownership, old and new.

The new owner seems very excited to take this business on, keeping the amazing things that built it, and adding new determination to everything else.

New retail management and staff seems to be helping make the place more welcoming too.
