HAND RUGS FROM THE CELINING OR SOMETHING. The ladies who do lunch tend to be very loud ladies. The food was excellent, the service excellent, the prices excellent but God, the patrons were loud

A local person recommended this lovely little restaurant. We had our first breakfast there and it was delicious. They only have a few choices but what they do offer is freshly made and very tasty.

Best cafe/bistro in St. John's! And that is a fact too. Service, venue, atmosphere, food, menu, and attention to detail is amazing. You will be "wowed", and have your expectations exceeded. Highly recommend!

A nice cafe, food was very good, ended up with an extra cod cheeks sandwich, which i had not ordered, BUT was wrapped up for me and so enjoyed the next day. Also enjoyed their rhubarb drink well balanced between tart and sweet.

Such a great experience! I brought a bunch of visitors here for lunch and we all loved it. The charity side of the restaurant made it even better. The staff were very friendly, and took a few moments to talk to our group while maintaining fast service. The food was absolutely amazing. I had the soup of the day, which... More
