Buzz Cafe has always been reliable. They're located in the quite back corner of emporium which is lovely if wanting a non people watching dining experience. They make great coffee and their eggs have always been top notch. Friendly and efficient staff make the experience enjoyable. Dining options inside and out, parking a plenty for breakfast but gets congested as... More

Sunday morning we were checking out of the Emporium. Rushed over to Buzz for a breakfast before leaving town. On first impression I wouldn't have stayed based on the decor- they could improve that but when breakfast arrived promptly I was pleasantly surprised. Both breakfasts were impressive. We ordered the breakfast platter and the egg white omelette. Both filled with... More

Don't know where they get the relish but it is awesome. Bacon nice and crispy and egg just runny without being messy. Rolls toasted to perfection. Coffee is good. Petite four chicken sandwiches are good as are the pork sandwich.

Excellent venue with usually easy parking. Can be busy at times however. Excellent selection of dishes -- all very tasty. Great coffee & smoothies & excellent service. We come here quite often from Brookfield. This restaurant far surpasses the other two outlets at Tennyson & Gasworks.

Dined here by chance on a week day night late last month with two friends. First thing that stood out was the fantastic service! We were allocated a waitress for the night (I think her name was Emily?) and she was sooooo friendly I felt like we were family already! She really took the time to answer our questions, describe...
