We went here for a family brunch. The food is simple but tastes out of this world! The fluffiest pancakes served with freshly-prepared fruit compote that tastes like you’re on a farm. They served a mushroom as chicken soup with my frittata that was just unbelievably flavourful! And they were so sweet with my 3-yr old too. All in all, great food, great atmosphere, amazing hospitality!

Great food and lovely venue. Service was a little bit slow with only one server but very friendly and we were not in a rush.

I went with my wife and mother for Mother's Day. Traffic was terrible for my mom coming into the city and despite being 30 minutes late they were very accommodating in finding us space to be seated despite not having much space. My wife ordered pancakes with cream and berry compote and it was probably the best of the meals any of us ordered -- very good! My mother ordered a pastrami sandwich that was also pretty excellent.

I regret to report this is 10 /10. Right out of the Park!

Great attention to detail, composition, taste, presentation, texture >>>>>>. Please don't go there!

Great little neighbourhood place. The owner and staff were friendly and brunch was delish! We all commented on the cool decor and feel of the place.

Food delish, Chef Jonathan LeBlanc trying to branch out his unique talents. Service ultra slow, perhaps its hard finding good help now_adays? Competition in the Junction for brunch. Perhaps more tables instead of family style? Will check back again in a years time.

Location is super quaint and it’s such a cute strip.
Food was amazing.
John was so great, came and introduced himself to us and told us a little bit about the place. Would highly recommend this to anyone travelling to or from the city!

Happy to stumble upon this restaurant via OpenTable. Both service and food were exceptional. Food was carefully crafted and with fresh ingredients. Service was great - server was very patient with us (my friends toddler was with us) and with great food and drink recommendations. Would def come back again for lunch/brunch.

Hidden gem in the junction. A must do for brunch. Spicy Benny was perfect. Pancakes were heavenly. Mimosa was the best I have had! Will definitely be back.
