This is a great place....so much to look at but even more to eat. Everything is fresh and amazing. We had the breakfast croissant and a bowl of fruit. Coffee and Chai were delicious. We plan on going back often while we are here.

The sandwiches were similar to what you can get most anywhere. Nothing special. I'm not sure what all the hype is about. The deserts were much better but again great deserts are available most places. I found the cost a bit much.

A great spot to pick up some treats for a friend and to grab a coffee or some lunch. Always fresh and tasty. A great local business and the friendliest staff

We had a light breakfast on a Saturday morning. Everything we ordered was perfect. Sandwiches, sausage roll, scones and chocolate nut clusters were awesome. And the coffee, both espresso and filtered, are excellent.

A cute and funky little café. The fishcakes are to die for (I went back for more the second night in town) and the salads are also great.

We enjoyed the food and coffee, but what was exceptional was the noon hour jam session by some locals, playing traditional jigs and reels on their accordions, fiddles, pipes, and home-made harps. It was great true Newfie experience!

Quirky, charming little place, but the tables and chairs could use an update (charm is one thing, functionality is something else). Coffee was, not fantastic. Pastries were 'ok'. Haven't tried their food menu, heard it was pretty good. Still, it's cute. Nice place to drop in.

Nice café vibe, good coffee, great pastries. A great little afternoon snack/coffee/lunch spot! Some local music was playing outside - neat vibe.

Love the atmosphere!! This simple relaxing eatery is a great place for lunch. The food is all fresh and homemade. Delicious main courses like fish cakes and wonderful baked goods. On occasion there is great local entertainment.

A great place for a light brunch with lots of tasty variety. The staff are super-friendly and the space is full of cool things to see; it's a fun place to spend some time. The baked goods are excellent - the macaroons in particular are sensational. Check out the retro Newfoundland posters for sale.
