Hmm, I am surprised no one had reviewed this place as it does not look like a new establishment.
Anyway, I came with my friend here for lunch after some Grouse Grind action. We didn't want to go to the standard fares like White Spot or Earl's, so we decided to drive a bit further. Walked by this place and decided to give it a try. First impression is that it looks spacious and cozy. A good selection of freshly made panini sandwiches and baked goods. We both ordered the veggie panini, It's got lots of filling, roasted eggplant, pepper, arugula, capers and more). I also had their soup of the day (leek and potato), looked homemade and tasted delicious. 2 sandwiches and 1 small bowl of soup came to $17+. Not the cheapest, but I think it's worth it.
I'm always looking for a place like this to eat that isn't a tim hortons or subway. The soup tasted home made and the grilled sandwich was delicious with asparagus, brie and pesto sauce. We also shared some deserts. They had lots of pastries and cookies. The coffee wasn't bad either! The service was a little slow but we seamed to have come in when they had a lunch rush. I wish we had one of these downtown!
The food was pretty decent, but I didn't really feel I got my money's worth. It's cozy and cute, but the music really annoyed me after about 10 minutes. I thought they had a fantastic range of baked goods, but I think it's really just known for its breads. I wouldn't go for a meal really... I wouldn't really go for coffee either, but it's a convenient location and a nice place to escape the rain when you forget your umbrella.
