Elegant little cafe. Original menu with a variety of wonderful choices. Superior wait staff. Desserts that melted on the tongue. We had a very leisurely and wonderful lunch at this location. They also drive a unique and much needed charitable service to the local community,...More

This café had many great reviews - and we were not disappointed. The Frittata was so delicious and the service was very friendly and professional. We will hit this café again for breakfast - before we leave St. John's.

We escaped our not-so-great B&B nearby and were richly rewarded by a delicious frittata &a BOB (breakfast on a bun). Service was also excellent. A nice little neighborhood cafe working for a good cause.
