Atmosphere is really fun and mirrors something you would find in the Commercial Drive area in Vancouver. However, service is horrible, took almost 15 minutes from time of order to receive our coffee....thank goodness we had taken to go or we would not had had time to sit and enjoy. Our daughter loved the book selection and the piano is a nice touch. So find out how to speed up your order system and you will have a winner.

I'm trying to do low carb and every menu item had something on my list of no-no's. There was potato, corn, peas, bread, or wheat in every menu item. I was hopeful for the frittatas but there was potato in those too. Salads were pasta or Quinoa so no choices there either. Hubby had the triple H panini which was ham, Havarti and hummus but sandwich was mostly bread, spinach and hummus, ham was so sparse you could see through it if you were lucky enough to find it. We weren't impressed for $21+ dollars. I asked for the ingredients of the soup and was disappointed when there was rice in that too. Won't go back to eat but the teas and coffees have been ok in my 2 experiences, don't waste your money on the substandard food.

I hate to say it but I had one of the absolute worst paninis here the other day. The special was a spinach and pesto panini with tomato and edam cheese and it was truly awful. Dry bread, little cheese, bland pesto and slimy, soggy spinach. I sat down to have some before having to run off to work, I ended up wrapping it up and throwing it in the trash later. Super disappointing for the $8 spent.

The coffee is decent but, the food is not so good.
The desserts are so hard you could break your teeth on them.
