Great food, coffee in a warm surrounding place, Family friendly. The food is good as is the coffee. This is a great meeting place for business or just a friendly gathering place. This place is a jewel in Terrace.

Came here with my son, had a great sit down with good coffee. They have open mic every-other Wednesday, so it's great you can order beer as well!

Our lunch came to $42 for 3 adults and 3 kids under 3. Might be OK for coffee, but a bit much for a family lunch.

Quaint place which really lends itself to long chats with your best buddies. Great coffee/tea - selection & taste - and I've never had a bad experience there. Food is tasty, staff is friendly (if not a little forgetful, but even that didn't harm my experiences)

Amazing home made soups and friendly service. The sandwiches were fresh and served with a generous salad and most important, great coffee!

Definitely a cafe feel, with some great seating options for people who are coming in larger groups (think round tables that seat ~6 people, but there are also regular square tables, along with couches. There's also a couple of small tables outside which are completely covered in case of rain). I liked the relaxed, but also slightly modern vibe. They... More

It's the blatantly Bohemian cafe in Terrace. Expect: Good coffee; good but overpriced food; live shows; outspoken middle aged NDP clientele at the tables surrounding yours; comfortable decor & atmosphere...

Enjoyed my time here today with a lovely bowl of tomato, leek and dill soup; along with two little biscuits. Had a delightful latte and finished it off with a peanut butter cookie. Wanted to get the sex-in-a-pan, as I use to make this for the kids ages ago and it brought back memories, but was full. Free wifi, comfy... More

I think it was the owner not sure. The big guy working in the back making donuts. With the filthy t-shirt. This guy insults me in front of my client because I asked for some receipts which they threw out and he had to do "some work" and look for my receipt. Clearly he has no clue how to run... More
