    Awesome food, don't cheap out on anything (except maybe the cole slaw side but I nitpick!), personal and friendly service. Which is why you have to wait for it. Well worth the price and wait.

    Long a lunch spot for the design & communication types in the warehouses next door, School's converted garage does dinners too, & in summer the patio is a great brunch spot. Fun, global-inspired nosh.

    Head straight to SCHOOL for a messy hangover treat. Chicken and waffles, or chocolate pancakes are my favourites. Just make sure you're close to a couch for the inevitable nap afterwards.

    The cheesy bacon French Toast is a long-time favourite of my but the spiroscope bowl is healthy and filling and fresh!

    Hidden gem in Liberty Village. The Chicken & waffles and Kail Caesar salad were fantastic!
  • Laura D.
    I don't know why people kept saying service was bad and slow, because I didn't experience any of that! Food is amazing, definitely won't go wrong with the cheesy french toast!

    The staff get easily overwhelmed and wait times for tables and for food can be pretty hairy. If there's a line at the door for seats, go elsewhere; your experience will suffer when it's busy.

    Popular brunch items (like the overstuffed popover) tend to sell out during peak times. Finish off a meal with a moist and delicious Pumpkin Whoope Cookie.

    Hire someone competent at the door to manage your crowds. Left after waiting twenty minutes, without being asked to put our name on the list. Found out she was taking names of people behind us.
