I met some girlfriends there for brunch On a Sunday.......was so pleased with the food!! Quiche was amazing....my friend had the Eggs Benedict and it was also delicious! Croissants, scones.....all wonderful!!! Saw the owner working away in the kitchen ....wishing her all the success with this lovely place , which I've heard is expanding to make more room for tables !!!

My wife visited this little gem a couple of weeks ago on the invitation of a friend and loved it.

In the least likely spot, truly entrepreneurial, Saving Thyme is quaintly crowded and filled with the most amazing pastries (you’ll think you’ve been transported to some little patisserie in Paris). Delicious to the eye and by all accounts, very tasty too!

We were there for brunch and while it took awhile, we experienced a nice atmosphere and friendly folk - hospitably delicious. Chilly by the door and busting at the seams for more space. Felt a little stretched to keep up on the service side, patience required.

All that said - thoroughly enjoyed and we’ll worth the wait!

Wow - just wow. The croissant is buttery and flakey and so yummy. I had the breakfast sandwich which was amazing. The latte was perfect and I got a croissant to go. I already want to go back.

I was happy to discover this place on TripAdvisor as I usually prefer cafes in Toronto or Hamilton. I've been living in Burlington for years and frequent this plaza and drive by often but never noticed this spot. It's hidden away.It's beautiful inside. I was excited to have a cafe close-by. However, it all fell a part with the service. The barista was very cold, seemed annoyed and despite my cheerful interaction, continued in this manner. She treated other customers in the same way. I selected a combination of baked goods and a espresso beverage. All were good, but the service was a big deterrent. Prices were fair. I'd be willing to give this cafe another try as I want to try their breakfast, but I won't return if the service is the same.
