This is a small place with diner-type seating, so there will definitely be a wait. But the food is creative, delicious, and filling. Service is friendly and accommodating. I'll definitely go back, specifically for the friend chicken on french toast breakfast.

So much food! French toast piled with fruit. Eggs and tons of bacon. Found baked beans a bit odd for breakfast but they were good too. Tried poutine for the first time. Liked it but have nothing to compare to. Great service and staff.
