“A lot of fresh fruit - but lacking what you order.”
Reviewed 23 August 2013 via mobile

I have tried liking this place - because everyone talks about it. This was probably my 5th time at this one - and I have yet to be impressed. Like always - service was lacking - BUT there was only one server for the whole restaurant. I asked if lattes could be made decaf (I am pregnant and can NOT have caffeine) and if that couldn't be done I would have a milk. She brought me a latte - but I double checked with her about 1/4 of the way through making sure it was decaf - 'oops I forgot sorry'. The water comes in kid size glasses - mine was empty before my meal came & was never refilled. My French toast order was up for a bit before I got it - because of only one server for the whole place. So when I ate my French toast it was warm & soggy from the fruit on it. Plus the food isn't cheap - the fruit is nice but I ordered French toast - and would have liked to enjoy that. Oh and when I went to pay - I was charged for the latte!

“No worth the price or the food.”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

I was really excited to eat breakfast here but there were mixed reviews. My sister and I were seated promptly and gave our drink orders. I wasn't impressed that my chocolate milk came from a chocolate squeeze bottle. There was syrup at the bottom.
The food was mediocre and and service was sub-par. For a plate of pancakes for my little sister and hash browns and toast for myself the total was $37. Not impressed.

“Food delish!! Service?????”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

I guess our first clue that there was a problem was having to wait for a table when there were only 9 tables occupied and staff was more concerned with arranging cutlery than getting customers seated. There was only 2 people ahead of is, but it still took almost 5 minutes before we were acknowledged. Not a good scene. After we were seated there was another delay in getting our order taken. However our food came quickly and was superb. Hubby ordered the granola with strawberries, ordered the raspberry creme crepe. Both were declared very good. BUT I had no knife to cut with. After the second request for a knife, the waitress came by and noticed I a using a fork and spoon to tear the crepe she slip the knife on the table. Too late. I was almost done. Tsk!!tsk!!! Not service.

“Mainly Fruit-Based Breakfast and Lunch”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

This restaurant serves mainly breakfast and lunch that are fruit-bent. It will suit the kids and the adults that like fruits or are vegetarians. The meat input is kept to a minimum such as ham and eggs. My partner dislikes it though because it does not meet her standard for breakfast. I like it.

“not bad could be bigger portions”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

The food was not bad but portions are small and it expensive for breakfast food.I had the breakfast mix that had bacon crepes sausage .but I found it pricey for the amount of food you get.It was over $14.00 with a drink just for one person
