No gluten free options but the food smelled amazing. The owner seemed personable and friendly. Neighbouring store owner said the soup is always 5 star.Service: 4/5

Oh my! What great soup! The little cafe looks like a hole in the wall. But it’s cozy! Lovely service. Plus the soup was soooo good! A borscht plus bun. Lovely steaming hot plus steaming hot tea. And how smart to have cheese cake shooters! Just a nice little desert. I will be back!!!!

With the high review ratings we looked forward to trying this place today though our experience was greatly disappointing!The wait time was very long considering we were the only ones there for a while. The soup came barely warm (I had it microwaved), the pulled pork panini had COOL pork with loads of overly mayonnaised coleslaw which, unfortunately, overpowered any flavour from the pork/BBQ sauce content.The young person making our food may have been new? Regardless, she could have used some help from the other 2 staff there to process our order more quickly & to make it more palatable.The Ruben sandwich was also a let-down :(

Love this place! The gentleman helping us was extremely friendly and helpful both times we’ve gone. The sandwiches and soup are delicious! The other baked goods look amazing too, will try some next time. Happy we found this little gem!

Wonderful place to get sandwiches and tea, ask for ice on the side if in a hurry, I recommend the pulled pork sandwich on gluten-free bread. The cafe has lots of syrups and choices of tea and coffee- really nice espresso machine and good cook Their soups are amazing and come on the side- salads too, I got the walnut mixed greens as well as their chicken noodle soup, my favourite is the beef and Barley one ??
