The food is good, very fresh. The Layout of the place is very interesting. I found the portions lunch sized. Pricing is ok. Service is phenomenally good.

Comfortable quaint place for a nice lunch. Good food and reasonable prices. Was disappointed with coleslaw, more like soup. Otherwise was great. Have been there a few times and will go again.

A nice spot for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Quiet in November. Prices were quite reasonable, portions were ample and the food was overall quite good, I enjoyed everything except the pancakes. But the biscuits were good, the service excellent.

Had breakfast here twice and it was very good. The sausage was strange and different but was very good. Didn't try the pancake's and syrup but so it and looked and smelt amazing. Will try next time I am there.

Have no fear, kids are very welcome at Schoolhouse. The chef is sympathetic to younger and much older crowds as well as evidenced by his offering smaller versions of his most popular dishes. Smaller versions of his... More
All I see are great reviews for breakfast. We plan on a pre-theatre dinner. Where's the wine list? Is there one? The prices seem quite steep for a small establishment...hope it's good.
