This funky little hole in the wall deserves rave reviews for the outstanding food they serve at very budget prices. The soups are insanely good and a robust big bowl is a meal in itself. Burgers and sandwiches were so fresh, well seasoned and flavourful....More

Really appreciate all the hard work that goes into preparing a truly gluten free meal. The borscht, mushroom burger and fries were delightfully delicious. This is my all time favourite restaurant!More
