“waffles, crepes and coffee”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Great food for a real good value. We had waffles and crepes, it was real good. If you have a sweet tooth in the morning it is a great place to go. Also, the coffee was pretty decent in its own right. Located in the basement use the side entrance and look for signage on the walls to find your way downstairs.

“Found this gem!”
Reviewed 5 December 2013 via mobile

Stopped in with my daughter for breakfast today. Love the homey feel and service was outstanding. I love local art and you get a feeling of comfort. Love chatting with the owner. Food tiny bit pricey for what it is, but so worth it for the experience. A hidden gem of Fredericton

“Decadent food and friendly service!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Both the breakfast and lunch menu are delicious but the real trip is for dessert and coffee! Belgian waffles, cafe mochas, it's all amazing! The couple who own the cafe are extremely friendly and multi-lingual and cafe has a very cozy atmosphere. It's an odd location and you might think you are lost but follow the signs to the basement and you've found them.

“Best brunch place in Fredericton”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

Excellent waffles, crepes, omelettes, soups, and sandwiches. (I hear the coffee is good, too.).Ample portions, and they use lots of real cream and butter in their offerings. All fresh and many locally grown ingredients. They also sell very good Belgian chocolate.

Local artists are featured on the walls, some of whom have studios right in the building. There is a kid's corner with toys and books, and it's a busy spot when there are kid's dance or music lessons going on in the building. Don't go on a Saturday morning if you are in a hurry to get out fast.

A tad hard to find in the basement, but just ask anyone for help. Ample parking on site or on street.
