Back for a tasty brunch in downtown Sidney, we love the tasty omeletes (fresh veggies with chorizo) plus a nice order of panfried potato with a cup of dark roast coffee. Staff members are always friendly and it's well worth the dining experience!

We are looking for a new place to eat and have found it, the food was good and the staff were even better. We were checked on a few times but not bothered while eating. This is a place to try and a place we will return to.

Stop in here whenever we fly into Vancouver Island. Great food every time we drop in. Good specials. Food is fresh and staff are friendly. Highly recommend but it is a busy place.

In from Toronto for a visit and decided to go because of good eating. Was not disappointed. Great 3rd St omelette. The service was excellent. The dark roast coffee was better than the medium but that's personal preference. The presentation was great as well The ratings were right on.

Wow..what a busy little (aka crowded) cafe for a Monday moring. A good sign that they are doing things right. My husband's a french trained chef. He said his poached eggs were perfection. I had the BOB and it was a taste sensation. Wish we lived closer..we'd be here all the time.

This is a very tiny restaurant! But as the sign states, they are short on space but big on taste. I was seated at the counter and ordered a steak sandwich. The side salad was a work of art with beet strings adorning it and perfectly ripe cape gooseberry jauntily balanced on top. It was delicious. Steak was smothered in... More

This is or "go to" place for a tasty breakfast and we always get a couple of tasty omeletes with several cups of dark roast coffee. Very affordable plus the staff are very friendly & helpful. Great dining experience & well worth the experience!!

I love this place. They have extraordinary breakfasts and great lunches too. Their crabby benny and huevos nuevos Bennie are both delicious.

This is the best little Cafe anywhere. Friendly staff, quick service, and very good food. We seldom go to Sidney without stopping here for breakfast or brunch. I'm sure their lunch menu is great too buy for us it's always breakfast.

Stopped in for breakfast while on the way to Victoria. Had a bit of a wait to be seated but that just means its a popular good place! The breakfast my wife and I had was awesome. Will be back next time we are on the island!
