Walking down the stairs into a funky decorated little place, mismatching tables and chairs with walls painted in graffiti like styling. Excellent service and menu offerings. My choice, the Sun Burger. I'm not vegetarian but enjoy the vegetarian fare at times. This burger was one...More

The menu has different options we I appreciate. It can get very noisy though at lunch hour so if you plan a quite conversation choose a different spot.

Very cool place. Food is good with very reasonable prices. But the atmosphere is way more than good. All the walls are painted with murals and all furniture, lights, salt & pepper shakers, etc. are from the 60's or 70's. This is the kind of...More

Great to go for some lunch. I really like the food. A mix of cuisine, and I believe it's vegan friendly as well, if that floats your boat.

The space is funky, the service is good, and the Sun Burger is delicious. I'm definitely not a vegetarian, but the vegetarian Sun Burger is definitely one of my favourite burgers. By the way, the photo currently shown for the Underground Cafe is most definitely...More
