Enjoyed the experience

It was a rainy day. We had good coffee - Dickson's. Surprise! Good eggs and sausage/bacon breakfast. It seemed that locals got better service/more attention than visitors like us.

Our meals arrived promptly and hot. The breakfast until 3 PM was a hit with the 9 year old. Food was tasty and good quality. The place was bustling when we got there and the two women serving handled the crowd with good humour and brisk efficiency. We will be going back.

Exactly what it looks like - a functional diner to get a cheap, filling breakfast. Normally I'd include "fast" but, you know, it's the island, fast isn't happening. I've only had breakfast, which is good - extra points for American-style hash browns.

Not bad, average, ok. Seafood chowder and Dagwood poutine was mine. Chowder had floury taste, not seasoned much. Same with the poutine. Since it had the Dagwood name, I was expecting something special. Ate 1/4, and left the rest. My sons burger was above average so maybe that's the trick.

We stopped here for breakfast because it opened before most of the other restaurants on Salt Spring Island. Typical diner food but place was clean and staff was friendly.

We had breakfast and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Nothing fancy but that's what we expect from a diner. Friendly efficient service.

On a busy summer day there are few places on Salt Spring to go to get away from the tourist and Dagwood's is one of them. It offer basic breakfast and lunch at reasonable prices. Plenty of parking make this a local fav hang out. If you need to hire a trades person it's a great place to find them... More

Classic dinner fare. I had the Seafood Chowder - it was excellent. Others in my group had the BLT, the Basic Burger, & Eggs Benny (breakfast available until 3:00pm) and everyone was happy. All items were under $11. The decor is basic, but we all left well fed and with money in our pockets. We were there at 11:30am on... More

This is my idea of the perfect little diner. THe food is fabulous, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The service is quick. It's a fun casual atmosphere. Great place to go for a traditional breakfast for a great price!
