It was a warm day so we enjoyed the patio seating and had the most scrumptious sandwiches. I had Uncle Stan's sanwich (or something like that) which had onion, tomato, and tons of cheese on wonderfully toasted bread. And the lemonade was also delightful! Such a cute little spot with very delicious food.

They have a large selection of sweets that are done well. In addition they have a great menu with lots of options. The soups, sandwiches, salads and quiches are really good. The service can be slow at times, but at least the servers are very friendly. You can also purchase some of the items from the menu frozen. I would recommend taking some quiches home. They are still nice, despite being frozen for a while. The flavours come out as you cook it in your oven at home. Anything that you order will probably be good. I have tried most of their items on the menu and I have never been disappointed.

Make sure you have extra time as service can sometimes be slow. But the food is really good. Avoid times when the "church" crowd shows up or you wont even get a parking spot. Sandwiches made from bread baked right on site, and all kinds of bakery goodies too. Overall, if not too busy it's the best spot for lunch.

My wife and I finally got to stop into this place. Heard a lot about it. Nice menu selection of lunch and breakfast items. Ingredients were fresh and there is a gluten free menu and several types of bread to choose from. My wife had the portobello mushroom wrap while I ventured for the grilled cheese. Nothing wrong with the grilled cheese, it was extremely fresh, but nothing you couldn't make yourselves. My wife's was awesome, she loved it. We will be back to this place and hopefully they turn the fans on cool instead of winter mode this time!

I have been to many cafe's in Europe and this place beats most of them hands down. It's not exactly like those in France and Italy, but the food and bread is just as good, but with great people and service and without the snotty attitudes that you can get over the pond.

I went here three times in a three day trip to Owen Sound to see family and it's always great. The food is outstanding and the staff make you feel welcome immediately. They actually appreciate your business and show that. Service is also very fast so you're not waiting though it can get packed at busy times so be prepared for that. Amazing place and the best in the Grey region for sure. Enjoy!
