I used to go to the cafe my house in bank street 1-2x per week. I used to love the menu and tried something different each time and the meals were about $16 for a huge plate. When they moved to Hintonburg I was super excited and then majorly disappointed as they changed the menu to make the portions tiny.... More

I am not sure whether small plates works here. The items were small. We ended up spending more than $125 (with 1 beer and 1 cocktail). We had soup (a roll would have been nice), 3 sall plates (could the potatoes be smaller????) and the cheese plate. I personally make more interesting nut cheese but the presentation was nice with...

I would eat here every day if I could! The food explodes with flavour! And the chef(s) is very creative. (My fave Instagram account!)

I'll start off with the positive: atmosphere is cozy and the server was attentive. The not so good: the food was a joke. 18$ for 3 bites of potatoes and I'm not kidding! My bill came up to 45$ and I went home and cooked myself a full meal as I was still hungry. Mind you, I am usually fine... More

We stopped by for a quick lunch. The menu was a bit limited but we opted for burger and a sausage options. It is a testament to the taste of the food that it took us a few bites to realize it wasn't meat based! We've never done vegan before and while coconut bacon will take some getting used to,... More

Calming atmosphere and great service. The charcuterie plate was really original and quite tasty. The only thing was that portions are extremely small and we found that small plates only satisfactory in terms of taste. Do not go here if you are actually hungry or be prepared to order a lot.

We wanted to try a new vegetarian or vegan restaurant for some time, with not so much luck. Fortunately, we discovered Café my House, by accident and were simply delighted ! The place is so discrete that I noticed at the last minute the word Café . Inside, same style, cool but nothing striking... First impression of the menu? What... More

I joined a few friends for brunch one morning and their waffles were incredible. The place was small at their old location but it was quite cozy. The staff was friendly as well.

This is an exceptional place to eat, whether you are a vegetarian or not. (I am so this place is a dream.) I've been twice and had the tasting menu and wine pairings both times. And both times I and my dinner companions were blown away. The food is innovative, fresh, exceptionally well-presented, and delicious. The wine pairings are equally... More

We did not have a good experience at this restaurant. Firstly, it was nearly impossible to find, as there was no sign with the name on it that was visible from the street. The waitress greeting us at the front was not very polite and informed us that they would charge a $3 plating fee per person for the cake... More
