We recently had lunch at Tiny Boxwood Cafe. What a surprise it was to walk in this beautiful setting with a nice grassy Courtyard and tables surrounding it. The setting is perfect. You can hear French music in the background and beautiful vegetation all the way around you. The food was delicious. The surroundings made the food even better. On... More

My day began with a delightful cup of coffee and the most amazing croissant with the tastiest jam. Best of all it began with a friend introducing me to this delightful café. The service was friendly and prompt. The grounds, you have to visit. We sat out in the garden amongst trees and birds singing. Being from Cape Breton, Nova... More

We enjoyed brunch in a lovely garden next to a nursery on Sunday morning. The menu is superb. The service is polite and gracious. Great for family and friends. Can get busy after 11 am.

This is such a lovely restaurant. Its really better than average, but not quite very good. It's warm and inviting with an imaginative menu. We sat at the bar and the service was ok, which can be the downside of sitting at the bar. They have a decent cocktail list and wine selection. The food ranges from appetizers to main... More

The quality of food has gone down drastically from couple of years ago. This is evident even by the smell, as you get close to the counter to order. the place needs a major make over specially the kitchen area. The servers and the guy behind the counter are disheveled. You pay tip after waiting in line and order, but... More

This is a special place for special occasions, like my daughter's 18th birthday brunch, or a cozy lunch for my husband and I on a date day. It is definitely not a daily or weekly jaunt unless you're rolling in money. The food is very expensive, and the alcoholic drinks are off the chart expensive. Having said all of that,... More

Nice location to have breakfast. You can sit inside or outside between flowers. Nice and caring waiters. Food is delicious. Tea made out of leaves - no teabag. :) There is no pricelist available. Prices are a little above average.

We do not usually love places that you go up to place your order, but this one was great. Atmosphere is really good, great feel like you do not wish to rush- just relax and enjoy. The food was good and we people watched and everyone seemed very pleased with their food. Not at all cheap, but a really good... More
