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!

Away from the crowds - but can still pack them in! Wholesome diner food - great burgers and decent prices. Excellent for all ages - I would definitely come back again. Hint - get the half order fries and half salad with your meal - nice to get your veggies in!

OK this diner is not fancy, but the food is high quality and priced right. I visit Salt Spring on an annual basis and this is one of my standard lunch stops. Some times you just don't want to pay $15 for a filling lunch. Expect to be seated next to the local tradesman, it's not fancy just good food... More

Best fish and chips I have ever had. I was treated to both cod (which the owner caught that day!) and halibut and they were equally delicious. Batter was perfect, chips were delectably seasoned and even the Caesar salad was just right! Pleasantly surprised by this unassuming local diner! Will be back!

Every time the food is the same consistent and large portions. A locals diner. You can get everything from burgers, pasta, and even Christmas Dinner.

Came here for New Years day brunch.. the food was pretty good and we especially enjoyed the buttery flavored hash browns. The service however was extremely slow, to the point of being inconveniencing to us. Coffee was never refilled, it took quite a while to get served or to get the bill, to the point that when we left I... More

from outside appearances, you may not consider going in (restaurant is in an industrial area), but by all means go in. Food was very good, good portions, friendly service, priced decently. The only downfall is that the place lacks ambience.
