Wonderful little cafe, delicious food, try the scrambled eggs and salmon, good service and all around delightful experience. My only suggestion might perhaps a slightly larger drink menu ... a mimosa with brunch would have just made it perfect!

We visited this café bakery to try one of their Nanaimo bars. They were everything we had hoped for. The atmosphere was really nice, and the service was amazing. Very chatty staff made us feel at home. Overall a great experience.

Their Nanaimo Bars are light and tasty - not heavy with filler that's like mortar. Then try their Carmel Apple tart or Lemon Curd tart! Excellent Bistro coffees. Interesting customer base - lots of Petit Chou fanatics!
