Had spinach salad and a cup of tea here and it was delicious. I love the way they put the little tea pot over a candle warmer to keep it hot and steep it properly. The only complaint I have is the piece of lemon meringue pie we shared tasted a bit fridgey. The waitress was thoughtful enough to divide... More

Lisa's Café is a little gem in Windsor, NS It has a select menu with a lot of the items made from scratch. Their spinach salad with home made dressing is delicious. Their desserts are really good as well. Made from scratch.

Fish is all fresh and well cooked. Prices are fair. Service is quick and friendly. You seat yourself upon entry, and there are times this is difficult if you are a party larger than 4 persons. They have an excellent desert menu with loads of selection and I believe it is all made on site, none of that pre-frozen stuff.

This place is just not my style. I find the atmosphere cold and the food is just ok. The service is good and the restaurant is clean. Now the dessert is very good. When I was in there the last time I had to eat with my coat on.

Good service and food was ok. Felt as if plates were put together in stages- with some items lukewarm and almost cold and others steaming hot. Old ramp that was not up to code requirements for accessibility. Narrow and could not get a larger wheelchair into the place. Homemade pie but only ok- much better at other places in the... More
