Hands down, the best croissants you can find in town. If only they had longer working hours. Almond croissants is recommended.

Il Second and its bakery location, Christies, continue to prepare food that is consistently excellent in quality and is made in the back-to-basic classic Italian style. If you are looking for the same old North American fast food fix, this is not necessarily the place you want. But if you a looking for a place to take your family on Saturday morning for coffee, brunch, or to stock up on the feature potato bread or Pugliese, join the crowd. This is a local family owned and operated business and if you are missing a taste of Italian wood oven pizza and can't quite get to Italy fast enough, check out this next best alternative. Also great during the week for celebrating special occasions with a nice Italian wine or beer complimenting the soup, salad and pizzas that tastes like Nonna made it.

Pizza is delicious and tasted like authentic Italian! So many options for Italian food! Great selection of salads, paninis, and pizza. Can sit outdoors or inside. Great little place on Broadway for a quick stop and eat, or enjoy yourself outside on a nice summer day :)

Overall a nice experience, but there was nothing exciting about my experience.

Coffee is good and the veg panini I had was good. Not the best place for value, however more of an experience place on Broadway.

Service was average, the person that took my order neglected to tell me how the order callout/ number system worked. I found this verry confusing. Coffee came out first and then my food. One was called by number and the other I just had to hang out and wait for. Could probably tighten up this process.

Our granddaughter chose this place when we gave her the gift of dinner at the Saskatoon restaurant of her choice. We shared a pizza: half just cheese and tomato sauce for her and Pizza Margherita for us. After all the online hype on review sites, we were so disappointed. The outer edge of the crust was over an inch wide, just crust with no fillings … it was dry like a cracker, but may still have been the best part of the pizza. The center of the crust was extremely thin, limp and soggy. It was difficult, probably impossible, to eat it without a fork. There was nothing special about the tomato sauce or seasonings. So this soggy tasteless pizza cost us almost $20. There was not much to the pizza so it could easily have been eaten by one person … but only if you can afford to buy one for each of you.
The only good thing I can say about this experience was that the cashier was friendly. I had read reviews on another site that said there was an unpleasant woman behind the counter giving customers a hard time.

This restaurant has very limited hours. It seems peculiar that it would be open so little when it is right in the heart of the university district.
