I wish it were still operating...it was a neat experience to eat there. My last chance to eat at the Gravity House was last fall. I always loved their specialty teas & coffees. the crusher sandwiches were scrumptious ...my favorite. am going to miss them.

I've had a couple of quite amazing meals here, it truly should be tried by everyone at least once! Have had two amazing meals here, the roasted chicken crusher is amazing and the salads are great too!

The menu offers many delcious homemade options. Everything is freshly prepared and very tasty. Excellent soups, sandwiches and coffee. The tea is served in china cups! What a nice touch. Great service and friendly owners will make you feel very welcome.

Whilst staying in the Minden area we dropped in to the cafe for lunch and it was well worth it. Good food, service and prices. It was a lovely day and we sat on he deck and enjoyed the fall weather. The black bean soup was particularly good.

We recently stopped in at this cafe on our way to a cottage we had rented. The food was amazing as were the lattes. We had the pear and brie panini and they were delicious. The staff were also very friendly. I highly recommend a stop here if you are in the area.

Had lunch numerous times here while staying in Minden. Great gazpacho and sandwiches, as well as lovely lemonade. A Bit pricy for what you get, but it was August in the Haliburton Highlands, so we expected as much.
