I had breakfast here with a group of friends the day after we finished the WOW Cyclothon 2018. It is a relatively small downstairs restaurant that can be busy. The food was excellent quality and the portions were generous.

Weak menu. No good warm food options. Pricy for food that you could just as easily buy at a grocery store. Bread cut too thick. Pretty disappointing experience.

Little cafe near City Hall, not very many seats so get there early. Good breakfast sandwiches and coffee.

Cute & small place with a very intimate, rustic atmosphere. I had toast with egg & salmon - very fresh & delicious! Also tried the hummus which was homemade & delicious. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for a delicious brunch in the city.
