"I had the pleasure of eating at The Good Intent. I chose to have the sausage and colcannon. I have never seen such a selection of sausages! From honey to spicy, you have all the selection here. The colcannon was delicious and the portion extremely generous! Highly recommend this charming eatery! :) " 5/5 - Tamara, Toronto
