I've been to Cafe Lift several times and thoroughly enjoy it! It can get quite busy, but the food is definitely worth it! The coffee is unlimited, which is nice, and their chai latte is delicious. The mushroom toast is to die for and their breakfast burrito is also very yummy! I have never been disappointed with my meals here, and love to come! If you get up early enough too (8-9am), the deals are great!

We hit the brunch sweet spot somehow and only had a two minute wait for this fantastic cafe. Their menu is AWESOME, and their staff is charming. I want to eat the mushroom truffle toast EVERY DAY. Great coffee, cool lighting, neat spot. It was a little loud, but thats understandable for a popular brunch spot on a Sunday morning. We loved it!

Food was good. Went during rush hour on a Sunday morning and had to wait for 45min. If you sit inside, be ready to leave the place smelling like food for the rest of the day. Don't get wrong, food was good, staff was friendly, but if you walk a bit more, you can go to a much better place such as Cafe Le Maude, in my opinion.

Say with a group of 5. There’s a spacious waiting area inside with seats. The coffee is great and our meals arrived in a timely manner. There’s nothing dampening the noise so it can be hard to hear the conversation at your table. There is also outdoor seating available. Cash and card is accepted.
