Went to a Wedding Reception in their upstairs room and was delighted - the food and service were quite excellent. The ambience was lovely.

We frequently go to Timeless for just a morning coffee and scone, or lunch. Everyone once in a while we'll book our date night here for dinner. Going for Valentine's this year. The food is always fresh. We find that the chef is very creative in the use of flavour combinations and ingredients. We love to see what the weekly... More

Went for a business lunch. It's my first time visiting St. Jacobs and I have never been so pleasantly caught off guard. I recommend everything on the menu, I couldn't choose! It doesn't matter what you get, the flavors come alive in your mouth . LOVE that they use local fresh ingredients and make their own ingredients from scratch. Don't... More

We love Timeless Cafe & Bakery. They have a great menu and also cater to gluten and dairy intolerances. Live entertainment for Sunday brunch. Fun, clean and a good place to eat.

Timeless is probably my favourite spot in Waterloo, ON. I go there for breakfast or lunch anytime. Love it, food is delicious, the atmosphere is amazing, so quiet and rural. Their service is awesome. I got married there last October and nothing was missed, everything looked stunning! Breakfast there, count me in it.

Their regular Brunch menu has Salmon scramble with goat cheese which is a treat. I frequent the Eggs Benny. they feature a Salmon Benedict with lemon chili poached salmon,... More

We have been going there every few months for a few years. The menu is creative with unique specials offered. Very popular place. Recommend reservations. Quiet for conversation. Charming setting. Friendly staff. Bakery items always grab me on the way out and I end up with a bag or box of goodies. It's not a cheap eatery but good value... More

Six of us had a light lunch here and the varied menu can cater for all tastes - even vegetarian gluten-free. The ingredients of each dish are carefully described on the menu and the cooking is not run-of-the-mill. Portions are not generous and smaller than one would expect for the price. I had onion soup topped with a piece of... More

I have been long time fan of Timeless Cafe; the food is always delicious and the daily menu changes are something to look forward to. The salads and quiches are fantastic and the restaurant has a unique ambiance as it is a converted hen house. I haven't been disappointed eating in the restaurant, my only suggestion is to make increase... More

Timeless Cafe & Bakery is located in the original hen-house of a century old farm homestead in North Waterloo. Our Cafe is a hidden gem, surrounded by high-tech and other diversified businesses, and adjacent neighbourhoods. This beautiful old structure has been creatively restored by the Cafe owners, Jim & Lesley Brickman. The interior finishes and fixtures are designed to showcase the practical uses of reclaimed materials and architecturalStore Imagetreasures found next door at The Timeless Materials Co. The result is an original eating destination, in a warm and friendly atmosphere. At Timeless Cafe & Bakery we pride ourselves in sourcing the finest fresh, local ingredients available, as the changing seasons allow us throughout the year. Our fresh baked breads, pastries and healthy inspired offerings are all made from scratch. Our menu selections change daily, on the whim of our creative & exceptional chefs'. Since our quiet opening in mid-August 2012, we are fortunate to have been promoted by way of the most sincerest of compliments, word of mouth. We hope your visit will be a unique eating experience that will keep you coming back with friends, family and associates.
