Relaxed place to catch up over breakfast...but go with an appetite!! The chocolate pancakes were scrumptious the eggs/bacon/mushrooms on sour dough great and good strong coffee. Great prices... $9-$12ish. Both kids and adults enjoyed it...we'll be back.

We visited the shop for Sunday breakfast with 3 other couples. Staff very friendly in taking our orders and delivery food to our outside table. Seating available inside and outside. Good selection of sandwiches, rolls, cakes etc. Coffee was excellent.

This cake shop serves excellent coffee and simple elegant pastries!!! A must visit for a quick bite in the morning. Their kransky's and bratwurst topped off with melted Swiss cheese are to die for. So why wait any longer. Drop by now. I can't wait to try their waffles next. YES, they have WAFFLES!!!!!

This is our favourite coffee shop now. The range of cakes is luscious. Nothing is too much for the pleasant young ladies behind the counter. There is seating inside and outside........be sure to get there early as it gets quite busy and you may miss out on your favourite cake for the day.

On our hunt for a better vanilla slice the Swiss Cafe was recomended. We normally go to the delightful Stratford Deli but they no longer have their amazing french vanilla slice. My ptr had the vanilla slice and tea here I had the choux creame pastry and a coffee. All was ok the decor is ok the staff were ok... More
