Despite living in Kits for several years, I only just recently discovered this place when I met a friend for coffee. What a find! Upon entering, I was immediately impressed with their vast selection of delicious looking baked goods, which include an assortment of cookies, breads, tarts, squares, and pies, as well as a sampling of savoury items like quiche, curry, and sandwiches. Since it was around lunchtime and I was feeling only slightly hungry, I decided on a small chicken and vegetable soup. I was happy to note that this delicious house-made soup was served with two generous slices of freshly baked bread. I enjoyed the soup immensely as it was packed with flavour and a ton of vegetables and did not taste salty in the least. The inordinate amount of salt used by restaurants in soups has to be one of my biggest pet peeves! Without a doubt, the soup I had at Mix was one of the best I've tried anywhere. I loved it so much that I have returned on subsequent occasions to try their other selections, such as the spicy dahl and lentil vegetable. I have found them to be equally good. Most recently, I ordered a loaf of sunflower wheat bread which I discovered not only tastes wonderful but also has the very best texture when toasted. I am impressed by the assortment and quality of the loaves they bake daily and can't wait to try their cranberry loaf. Unless I am meeting a friend for lunch, I prefer take-away orders. As far as cafes go, Mix offers a nice, casual setting. It can be loud at times but the terrific food and friendly staff more than make up for it.
