Downtown breakfast and lunch serving Deeper Grounds coffee, my favorite of the area roasteries. Inviting decor of whitewashed and natural wood which includes a bar, tables and outside seating in the trending Cheapside area. Although the menu is limited with four choices for breakfast, the Oatmeal Brûlée, Chorizo and Egg Sandwich and Breakfast Sandwich with egg and bacon were individually hot and creamy, crunchy and spicy, and crunchy and oozing egg, but not grease! Chorizo and Egg was served on ciabatta which absorbed the spicy spread and chorizo, while the Breakfast Sandwich was served on crisp toast with a mild spread and bacon crispy. Lovely selections! Also, the Oatmeal came with a brûlée topping and was creamy and delicious. Also requested a side of toast and even though not listed on the menu was accepted with no hesitation. Came with fresh butter and jam and was eaten down to the last bite! Also, bathroom was roomy and clean, always a bonus!

I'm sure the food is great , the decor is thoughtful and clean , the staff might be great but , the 4?of us couldn't figure out the free for all seating arrangement and just gave up and left, so to the owners , hire a greeter, put up a sign or do something to help as we were not the only ones who seemed confused and left. In your defense it was a busy Sunday morning, maybe we will try again,maybe you'll read the review ,chuckle at our naivety and move on or maybe you'll put some thought to making the process more intuitive

I had lunch here and loved it. The grilled cheese with spaghetti squash was salty and messy, which I love. The tomato soup was tangy and bright. The beautiful space was obviously designed by someone who knows that less is more. I love the vibe. Highly recommended .

This is where I come when I need a detox from the week or a nice, relaxed meal. The restaurant is basically a coffee shop that service good food with a bar that seats 5-6 people and another 6 tables. There are also tables outside. Get the teepee table if you can. They have a nice menu of sandwiches and salads. On weekends, they have a separate breakfast menu (try the French toast). On this recent trip, we had the Granny Smith salad, the smoked salmon sandwich, a side of tomato soup, and a side salad. All of the food was made well and isn't too heavy. I really appreciate their salad dressing to salad ratio. They always seem to have the right amount of salad dressing instead of a salad drenched in dressing. They also serve coffee and tea and other drinks like soda and juice. You can't go wrong with any of those. They have nice big cups for the coffee and tea. It's like from out of an episode of Friends

Cheapside coffee, food and service are the best in the city. If you are a coffee snob this is your kind of place!
