Handmade pesto?! Dec 29, 2012
Walked by a few times and was quite intrigued with the mini at the entrance. Lunch on Sunday seemed like a good idea as the rest of the restaurants have closed for the day.
I still don't understand if I would call this a cafe or a restaurant, as the expectation would vary quite a bit. How the tables were arranged convince me that ... they may not be sure themselves.
Sarcasm aside, the layout was amusing and for lunch I must try their homemade pesto linguini and signature coffee.
It took 15mins for the linguini to arrive and truth be told it was not homemade. Just oily with no seasoning. I enquired with the server what homemade means and she said... it tastes homemade...
That made my day.

Like it, must go again Nov 08, 2012
We arrive around 3:00pm, we are struggling in ordering All day b'fast or set lunch~~ Meanwhile, we are hungry so we ordered lunch. He choose lamb chop, I pick the halibut. First come the pumpkin soup with garlic bread, quite nice Then the main dish is on table, mine with the potato mash under the halibut, a bit surprised!! Umm..... it's ok, the dish is not hot enough, the portion is small makes me a bit disappointed. My friend's lamb chop is ok, but the side dish also get cold very soon. This have to improve!
I like the water mug, very creative and the capiccino, it taste good, just one thing, getting cold so fast~~ better serve after meal~~
I like the decoration and the atmostphere anyway~~

Very disappointing Jul 03, 2012
To begin with, I am a die hard mini fans. I was very excited when I found out theres a cafe with such theme. I really did not have that high of an expectation on food quality prior to the visit.
So I went there on a weeknight. The classic mini at front was very pretty. Other than that, it wasn't really that of a mini themed place. A bit overrated.
About the food: we ordered a BLT burger and salad with grilled chicken. First both dishes came in with absolutely no plating, The meat in the burger was very very dry, as well as the chicken in the salad. Even McDonald's does it better! The salad was not fresh at all. Dressing provided was not enough.
Even the water tastes funny,
We were very disappointed at the food quality. I wasn't even expecting much to begin with. But this is just.... Unacceptable.

Worst service with coward manager Jun 17, 2012
Had a group booking for a large table. Server took order one by one, 30 minutes until first dish came, 10 minutes later second dish came , we had over 10 people! They ended up forgetting 3 dishes after still an hour wait. Manager was confronted but took no action, no apology offered. We ended up canceling the 3 missing dishes and they still tried to charge us for one. Manager made no attempt to make us ever want to go back and couldn't even look at us when we left. Just hid behind the counter. So sad!

This place is a joke, don't waste your money Apr 04, 2012
I randomly walked in and decided to have brunch on a Sunday. The entrance and seating looked interesting. Menu looked standard, so we ordered a couple of lattes, bagel with salmon and eggs benedict.
After fiddling around for 15 minutes, the waitress brought the lattes over and asked if we needed a stirrer for the sugar. I asked her if she expected me to stir the sugar with my finger? She clearly didnt understand and brought one over. I assumed it was her first day on the job so over looked that as ignorance.
Another 15 minutes later my bagel with salmon arrived. Now, a bagel with salmon and cream cheese takes 3 minutes to make including toasting. Why this took over 20 minutes was beyond me and it arrived without being toasted. Bagel was hard and not easy to eat. The lettuce they put on the plate looked like it had been pulled from the trash. Not appetizing.
I was expecting both dishes to come at the same time, but assumed the second was close behind. After another 10-15 minutes, I was ready to chew my arm off. At this point I had finished my bagel and my fellow diner had yet to receive hers.
Finally, the eggs benedict arrived. Whoever created the egg benedict must have been rolling in their grave. This pity of a concoction came out and looked nothing like its namesake. It would have been better called random stuff on toast with melted cheese all over it.
The eggs benedict was on a piece of toast, not a muffin, and the there was no ham to be seen. When asked, they told us that they simply ran out. It would have been proper to tell us that at the beginning, so we could make some alternate choices. None of this happened and I asked them to cancel our order and take it off the bill.
We quickly settled up for the lattes and left. Other patrons sitting close by had similar experiences and all the staff could offer up was that they were short handed.
This place seemed like a grade school business experiment where a bunch of kids were trying to run a business. Amateur hour. Don't bother, keep on walking.
To salvage this experience, we walked over to Green Waffle Diner and had a delicious eggs benedict and waffles. Go there instead.
