We ate here today, the food was delicious and the staff were great. My only complaint (if I was being picky) was that the food was slow to come out.

Went for a meal before a movie and as they were expecting a crowd put down towards the theatre entrance and not in the normal eating area. There was no vibe down there and it was just used as an overflow area. I was mostly disappointed that our order was very rushed and my entree was served with my main. Both were hot dishes and there was barely room on the table for four dishes. It was very weird.

We went to this wee cafe as a family group and there were many great choices. I had Nachos and daughter1 had pasta. Hubby had an open steak sandwich. Grandpa had a sandwich. Very prompt and friendly service and generous helpings of very tasty food. To be honest, I hadn't expected much, but it was a great experience and there were lots of people in the cafe the whole time we were there. Coffee was great too!

We visited on a Saturday, it was very quiet, only one other table with customers. Two of us ordered eggs Benedict which came out cold and the English muffin was not even toasted. We sent the played back and they were replaced with warmer food however the English muffins were still not toasted and the bacon was not well cooked.
We would not go here for breakfast again.
