    I know every restaurant is having difficulties during Covid, so there was no table service. My friend and I found an outside table, but I am not a meat eater, so it was limited for me. My friend loved her pasta dish. I got a salad which was good. Most people could probably find something good to eat, but considering my limitations and Mediterranean fare, not being one of my favorite foods, I would probably only go back for coffee, snacks, etc. The food was quality, but for me, the menu wasn't varied enough.

    Gave this place a try on a cold Saturday evening after the MFA. Menu good for a mix of preferences. Eggplant appetizer great, flatbread a bit to much bread, not enough flat. Entrees were excellent, especially chicken shwarma and beef/lamb kebabs. Nice ambience, not too loud. Service excellent.

    Was told to say even though we had a opentable reservation. Showed them phone etc. Was told to just wait. Watched tables open up and filled with walk-ins. When we reserve a time, we’re not suppose to be put on the end of the wait list. Don’t bother using them on Opentable. Wife has been a few times as walk-in. we figured we’d go on a brunch date. No thanks. Rude host. They looked like they had no clue at handling crowds.

    Made a reservation for 1pm, got there and was told I would have to wait 30+ min because they didnt have room. Turns out they said the exact same thing to 5+ parties. I suggest them lowering their open table volume if they dont think they can handle it.

    A charming little cafe with plenty of plant-based (vegan) options but plenty for carnivores too. They were a little bit understaffed and the hosts seemed stressed, despite it not being terribly busy yet (lots of tables filled, but no wait). However, everyone was kind and accommodating. I met a friend of mine here and our seating was cozy but gave us sufficient space. One of my pet peeves is cafes and restaurants that squeeze the tables so close together that you end up bumping into your neighbour as you cut your food! This was cozy, but only cozy ... no elbow contact here. The atmosphere is pleasant. It reminds me a lot of the cool little cafes you'll find in millennial-heavy areas of London. Brightly-lit, plants, mirrors, and some vintage-inspired decor. The outdoor seating is limited but very nice. The noise level isn't too bad at all, especially considering that by the time we left it was early afternoon on a weekend and getting much busier. One major disappointment for me was that the hemp/oat milk has been removed from the menu, but it's still listed there. This seems a little odd to me, since there are some really well-considered plant-based options as far as food goes. The exclusion here means that the only plant milks are soy and almond--the two worst options for vegans. Almond often burns and has that acrid taste, and soy is ... soy. Coconut, oat, rice, hemp, or pea milks would all be much appreciated. Oat is popular in cafes which are much less vegan-friendly, and the vast majority of places now at least have coconut milk. My friend had the turkey bacon benedict and I had the vegan breakfast--both excellent. The vegan breakfast came in lots of little pots on a tray--very cute and very satisfying to have a small taste of everything! There was a lot of food. We both said how much we enjoyed it, and I will definitely want to return to try the vegan shakshuka as well as some of the lunch and dinner options.

    The hostess was just making up rules on issue vs outside seating “since my open table reservation was under two hours” I couldn’t have an inside table since those were reserved for over two hours🙄. Four booths empty while we sat out in the heat. Food was pretty good, but service was bad.

    We had a nice early dinner at Cafe Landwer on a quiet Saturday this summer. It was hot enough that we decided to eat inside, instead of on their nice patio, which we'll try another time. Loved the shakshuka and the pizza, also had a very nice green granita drink. Great service and great food, in a very attractive setting, can't wait to visit again!

    We went to the Cafe Landwer in Toronto for breakfast back in May and we really enjoyed it. My family took me to this one in Boston for my birthday this week. The experience was amazing! The harissa fried Jerusalem artichokes with hummus and warm pita were a great appetizer for 4. We each got different meals and the food was fantastic!

    The food was great and the hostess was kind and professional even when I saw some people without a reservation give her a hard time for the wait. Everything came out in a timely manner and was great! The only issue I had was the waitress asked us right as we sat down if we were ready to order our entire meal.

    We had the Landwer's Breakfast for Two - it was amazing! The food was delicious! We also had the mint lemonade granita - a must in the summer! Service was good, only exception was some chaos at the greeter's station - probably because the place was busy. Although we checked in with an OpenTable reservation, I got an e-mail later in the day from OpenTable claiming that we were a no-show. Despite this issue, we will definitely go back next time and bring friends with us so that they can experience Cafe Landwer.

    A nice place, pretty well run kitchen, clean bright and welcoming front. So many staff. Visited a few Saturdays and it seems like there's more staff on the floor than diners. Maybe it gets a lot busier closer to lunchtime? I guess this is not a complaint, more an observation.

    Nice Saturday am breakast. We arrived at 9am and it was easy to get seated (although we did have a reservation). By the time we were leaving there was a line. Friendly waitress. We each had a variety of shakshuka eggs plus a shared plate of their rosolach pastry. Will go back and try other times of day.
