Fed up with paying ridiculous prices for average breakfasts in hotels we ventured out for a local breakfast. We came across this place and although tiny, we ate in and had the most delicious breakfast and coffee! Have the pancakes... perfect!!

Went for breakfast and my husband and I had a couple breakfast wraps, he had a latte and I had a drip coffee. It was all great. The breakfast wraps was very filling. We'll definitely go back.

Stooped here for a quick bite to eat and a strong coffee after a skate on the lake. Got both with friendly service. Highly recommend the Reuben or the pizza wrap. I am a self proclaimed coffee snob and the long black (Americano) hit the...More
