“The customer service was lovely, the chicken panini and the toasta mista were brilliant. The bathrooms were amazingly clean and smelled fantastic. A real gem. Say hello to Tony. He’s the man. ” – Sam
“Everyone owes themselves at least one visit to this café, to experience what really, dining-out should be in Canada. It is a neighbourhood café but we took a short detour off Hwy 400 to see if all the reviews were true – and they are! The first words that greeted us when we entered were “this is your first time here – isn’t it” and it just kept getting better from there on. We have been to other places where we can describe them as friendly, good service, quality food; but Tony and Adele have now set the benchmark for all these aspects. From the small piece of chocolate that comes with your coffee, the perfect eggs over easy, and pastries and overall attentiveness and hospitality of our hosts – not just to my wife and myself but to everyone else (adults, teens and children) we saw entering the café. Enjoy!” – M. Bennett
“J.W. salad & Chicken Panini – Came primarily from a note about their great cinnamon buns but found a warm, welcoming atmosphere – the owners knew everyone that came in after us, it was like “Cheers!”. Food was good – I had a J.W. salad, my wife had the Chicken Panini and the cinnamon buns were exquisite. We’ll be back.” – Don
