  • I love their breakfast sandwiches, the coffee is delicious, and staff is always super friendly.
  • The pastries are all amazing. Fantastic hot chocolate. Mix the soda flavors for something new.
  • I'm a latte FANATIC, theirs are absolutely delicious. I recommend you try one.
  • The scones with citrus cream will blow your mind. A fantastic morning treat.
  • Giant tasty cappuccinos! I love the daily frittata with side greens, the cinnamon currant toast and the great egg sandwiches.
  • Had the spinish, bacon, egg breakfast sandwich which was excellent. And the biscuits are famous around here.
  • It's True!
  • Lemon waffle is a must.
  • Hipster, good noise level, large portions of coffee and hot chocolate served in bowls. try the sandwich with goat cheese and fig, it's killer.
  • Try their daily soup - it's different every time and so good.
  • No wifi, which makes it a great place to sit and have coffee. Students more likely to be at Sacks or Roma.
  • You deserve a cookie. Head to Elmwood and grab one of their chocolate chip cookies (this bad boy is big--about 3 inches in diameter--and bits of fleur de sel glisten on its surface). Mmmmm.
  • Love the hot chocolate. The Italian sodas are also delicious, and come in all kinds of interesting flavors, like lavender and sage.
  • No WiFi here. Enjoy your breakfast time!
  • Nectarine tart was divine
  • I get the spinach bacon egg breakfast sandwich on a biscuit. It's the best!
  • Don't forget to use you Chinook book cou-pee!
  • It's loud, only one wall plug, crumbly macaroons, not impressed.
