Fun place

This is a cool vintage store, the owner takes care with the pieces she selects.
Food selection quite limited, but fresh and yummy. Vegan soup was great and wrap was good (a bit bland). The Asian chicken salad was more of an appetizer than a lunch dish.
Nice decor/atmosphere. Will go again.

Small menu, mostly vegetarian. The soup is always vegan and that's what I always get, it changes daily but never disappoints. Comes with rye toast as well. I love soup, but it's rare to find a place that serves a good sized bowl of good soup for a reasonable price. They are also known for their bodum coffee, unfortunately they don't have soy milk for it so I often bring a little tupperware container of it.

Very fair prices for the food, and a cute little vintage store. You can browse through the vintage clothes and jewellery while you wait for your food. It's a great little place to go on days off or for a weekend brunch.

Pros: awesome soup, great prices, cute
Cons: no soymilk for coffee :( , limited seating
