Cafe Mosaics-Garneau

Good food, good enough

What I had at Cafe Mosaics all tasted very good, though I haven’t had much. I found in general most of the dishes were fairly appealing, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the food because I am not a vegetarian and I generally don’t have a taste for vegetarian food.

The atmosphere is… interesting. The walls have a lot of local art on them, which is nice. The whole place is sort of aiming for a quaint, eclectic feel, but the mismatching furniture and glasses miss their mark, making the whole place feel a little sloppy. The service is similarly hit or miss.

I highly recommend Cafe Mosaics if you’re looking for vegetarian food in the area (I haven’t seen many other meatless options nearby), or, again if you’re in the area, if you’d like to try something different for lunch. I would not recommend going out of your way to get to Cafe Mosaics.

Mystery Burger

First vegetarian burger I’d ever had, and I really enjoyed it. I’ve had it multiple times, and sometimes it can be a tad mushy, but the flavour is quite consistently good. Not the most filling dish though.

Happy Garden makes me happy

Happy Garden is obviously a family (or at least tiny) business that suffers and benefits from what that entails.

Happy Garden is not a restaurant for eager servers or really any kind of atmosphere. It’s a very basic experience with basic chairs, basic decor, and basic service. While it’s not ‘bad’ in anyway, it’s not exactly positive.

On the other hand I have never had a bad experience with the food. I wouldn’t declare anything on the menu amazing, but I have found that everything is consistently pretty good.

On the whole, Happy Garden would be the best place in the area for take out if not for the terribly limiting open hours they have.

15. Lemon Chicken

Tasty and greasy. Pleasant despite a slightly mushy consistency. I don’t know what lemon chicken is ‘supposed’ to taste like, but I always enjoy the Happy Garden dish.

18. Szechuan Chicken (Hot)

Maybe ‘outstanding’ isn’t the most accurate descriptor, but ‘good’ isn’t enough. It’s not a dish you’ll go around telling your neighbours about, but you will not regret eating it, and eating it as leftovers in the morning.
