Good variety - light menu and tables outside (and inside providing the weather cooperates) Convenient - fight on the highway. Limited parking across the road

Always good food and good service. Trendy place right in the middle of town. Sunny summer days allow for seating outside.

Great coffee, great food and fresh cinnamon buns make this a required stop between Smithers and Prince George. We were not able to try all the delicious looking items on the menu but what we did was great. And the fresh cinnamon buns...mmmmmmm!

The atmosphere is cozy and the staff very friendly. Have been for lunch a couple of times and the food was fresh, great choices and very delicious. If they have the squash soup on the menu I would recommend paired with one of the tasty chicken wraps!

If you can slip into alternative grounds as soon as it opens, get your hands on one of their savoury Cinnamon buns - you won't regret it!

Our office was temporarily located next door to the cafe for a couple months, and I someone was ALWAYS sneaking over next door to satisfy our addiction! Big thumbs up.
