Love this place, have been here for dinners, lunches and breakfast. Perfect on a sunny day! The parking on Gallant Ave. can be a bit tricky so try the underground. I always make reservations because it is not that big inside and and very popular.

Lovely location, good variety on the menu, nice cocktails, I thought a tad pricey but you are in Deep Cove and paying for the location. Probably won't rush back due to the price.

Hi, thanks for your feedback. I'm sorry the chicken on your salad wasn't up to par. We actually don't own a microwave in the kitchen, but it sounds like your chicken might have been overcooked. I'm glad to hear you'll be coming back again and...More

We have frequented this cafe and have always enjoyed the ambience and food although the parking is a challenge. On this occasion however we were treated very poorly by a server who turned out to be the owner. A real jerk. Not sure we'll ever...More

Have been there with someone who is gluten sensitive, and she things on the menu that satisfied her, however you should check with the restaurant directly to make sure this is still the case. Bon Appetit!!

No, we won't be having live music this year. It's just too small a venue for a band. We will, however, be having a special three course menu. Reservations are going quickly!
