I love going to this place because of their freshly brewed coffee. The cafe is clean and not noisy. My friend and I regularly meet here for breakfast. We love the BLT and Western sandwich.

If you like sauerkraut perogies this is the place to go! The cafe is neat and tidy and spotlessly. Order at the counter and the food is brought yo your table. Definitely will go back!!!

I have been to Teremok many times and every visit was lovely. Galina and her husband own and run the cafe. Quality, authenticity and freshness is what Teremok has to offer. My favourite is the classic Borscht soup, perrogies and the custard flaky pastry. If...More
