Have been here for lunch two or three times and have never been disappointed. The ambiance is casual and pleasant with some great photos on display. Staff are friendly, professional and attentive. The prices are mid-range. The food is delicious.

Light, tasteful and special is how I would describe the waffles. Large portions that can be shared with your guest. Lovely setting in the diningroom area that makes it feel homey with a little fireplace. Staff are friendly and courteous. Worth every penny...

I had the waffles, strawberries and whipped cream. It was fabulous. The other couples mostly had traditional breakfasts. All said they were yummy.

Went here for the first time this weekend. Huge breakfast menu - I had eggs Benedict and my wife had the Belgian Breakfast. Huge portions and both were good. Great coffee/drink selection. They don't take credit so bring cash or debit.

This is a fun spot that is clearly popular for breakfast- the place was packed on late Sunday morning, so get there before 11:30 or expect a little wait. Very attentive service, tasty food, and appropriate/generous portions (depending what you order). I was disappointed that my waffles didn't look like the pictures posted online/in the menu- not as much fruit... More

Thank you so much for your review, Happy you enjoyed the waffle. I hope that you do understand that in a busy environment, we can't spend the same time to decorate a plate like we do on the picture. Guaranteed, every thing made from scratch and super fresh! More

Fredericton has lots of great restaurants for lunches, brunch and we've tried many of them. Our daughter lives in Fredericton and suggested lunch here. It seemed a bit out of the way but we figured it was worth a try. It certainly was. A nice atmosphere if a bit loud. Friendly staff and a surprisingly large menu. The food was... More

Breakfast experience was great, service was great and all the food but the waffle was nice and fresh. Waffle was clearly pre- made which was disappointing. We were there early so crepes were fresh made but you can see they are normally pre made later in the day. Price was fine and location is a bit weird but worth thew... More

Dear Zarfman, Thank you so much for your comments. We appreciate every thought our valued customers have. All our waffles are made from scratch and baked when the order comes in the kitchen. Did you happen to order gluten free waffles? We make these beforehand so that we don't contaminate the batter during a busy day. Thanks again! More

Found this restaurant on trip advisor while visiting Fredericton for weekend. Although a little out of town well worth the effort. Everyone had the Belgium breakfast. 3 year old twins shared an adult portion. Empty plates all around. Staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Even when they had people queuing to get in there was no pressure to... More

Excellent!!! Both the service and the food. Wife went traditional with "eggs Benny" but I opted for Waffles Barbados with marinated fruit - but no dark rum, still it was very tasty and much better than a bit of bacon and an egg. Decor was plain and simple but very clean, noise level was a bit on the high side... More

Thank you so much for your review! We hope to solve the noise level by next year. Just moved not too long ago to this new location so there is still plenty of upgrading and investment to do. Sincere apology of the credit cards, unfortunately they charge too much to small businesses. We try to give as much notice as... More

The staff treated us like family. The gluten-free options were fantastic! I loved the chai tea latte and my husband enjoyed the caffe mocha. The best breakfast in Fredericton. You won't be disappointed.
