    The wine selection is diverse & the friendly staff knows their wine inside and out. The anchovy salad is sooo good and the atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing. Dustin is wonderful to talk with!

    Like peanut butter goes with chocolate so does wine and coffee. This wine shop/coffee shop/restaurant has an outstanding wine selection and serves fair trade coffee from Counter Culture Coffee. Read more

    More grape than bean. They have great coffee but they're really more interested in selling you a glass or bottle of wine. They won't let you sit in the dining area if you just buy a cup of coffee

    "Their wine list focuses on smaller, independent producers from around the world, and their menu features small plates with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients..." - October 2012 Issue

    Great little spot off of busy King street. Order a wine flight and ask them to pair up some cheeses. You will be pleasantly surprised!

    The wine selection is great. And the meals are enjoyable but on the light side. We love the communal seating.

    Cozy place that is perpetually busy. Disappointed noone offered assistance when searching for wine. Selection well organized. Will come back for "sit down service" to leave another tip. CLOSED on Mon!

    Try a wine flight - it's a great way to try lots of different reds or whites without completely blowing your tolerance (or your budget)! Their cheese/charcuterie plates and salads are great, too.

    The flatbread is delicious. No stroller room inside but if you can get a table outside (1 of 2) then bring the kiddo.

    A very nice selection of wines that you can buy there and sip. $15 cork fee felt a little bit pricier.
