We stopped by here for a quick lunch so just had the breakfast sandwiches and coffee. The building is interesting as there is bank vault as the centrepiece.
Service was fast and the sandwiches were good. The cost was very reasonable as the two of us ate for under $10 total.
The location is central to the waterfront area.

We visited this place on a weekday for lunch. They have good sandwiches, cookies and coffee. It wasn't crowded and the service was good. Would go there again for a small lunch. I wouldn't go from nice brunch or dinner - after all, it's a cafe.

Very cool place to check out as it is an old bank. If you have time to just kill go here for sure. The place is cozy and artsy. The staff seems unorganized and slow to make cappuccinos.

This place combines Bohemian decor with Soviet-style efficiency. Skip it if you're in a hurry, but take a look around if you have some time to kill.

The muffins were dry, the selection was limited to two options, the coffee tasted like copper and to top things off like foam on a latte that took an hour to get, the service was awful. The counter people and waitresses all looked like they were refuges from alcohol and drug rehab 'self-help; groups and got the owner to let them work there. I hear the Alex & Ani people are taking it over. I'll go back when that transition is made in the hopes they've cleaned house.
