    Everything was good overall. Except the bread for my sandwich so dry and hard. Made the sandwich taste terribly dry. I had to eat my sandwich without the bread.

    A nice space with a good looking menu that just didn't hit the mark. From cold, greasy fries to crab bisque that was lacking crab to a pizza that was bland, it missed the mark. Some good appetizers and mains but too spotty to be better than average. Service was good, not great, but did have a well chosen wine list.

    I usually have a salad but I strayed and had a warm black forest ham and gruyere sandwich that was delicious. Beyond delicious and the fries are quite yummy too!

    The cafe served great lunch and the outdoor dining in a mild weather was a great choice for Mother's Day celebration. I had berry salad which was excellent healthy choice. My family had a pizza, angel hair pasta with Salmon and turkey sandwich and every dish was delicious. We enjoyed the chef's ability to make pizza and turkey sandwich tasted so great. Service was excellent. Definitely will be back.

    I like this new Bistro. Service was great, my Blue Cheese & Pear salad was great tasting, but had a new old leaves in the mix (I hate that, too common!) but with the flavourful dressing, it was very edible. I will definitely give it another try.
