Came here with a friend for breaky and though it was quite pricey, the portions were big and the food was really good. Ate on the patio on a nice sunny day which was lovely.

We made a reservation here for Mother's Day to take my grandma out for brunch. It was 4 of us and based on how busy it was I would definitely recommend a reservation in advance. Food was amazing and definitely tasted homemade to us. Lots of selection to choose from. Everything from some very good eggs benedict to perogies as... More

A relaxing gem tucked away in rural Coldstream. Great for breakfasts and lunches. Love this one stop shop for my eggs, soups, jams and even pre-made dinner entree ideas. Looking forward to trying their brunch and Father's Day menu.

I regularly attend Friessens for a great morning breakfast the service is good and food is very good. Portions are enough to fill you up and get your day started. Also has unlimited coffee refills. I will continue to go there and I highly recommend it. Dan W

This place has had a few unfortunate reviews since changing hands. I think the food is still good, maybe not quite the same as when the Friesen's owned it, but good nonetheless. Lots of products available for eating at home also, and it is a warm, welcoming spot to feel like your grandma made you something to eat - cozy!

Known for fresh home grown ingredients and home cooking. Limited seating in cool weather, a lovely outdoor garden patio on warm days. Dieters beware! Cakes, cookies and fabulous homemade pies and fresh baked bread and buns assault your senses as you enter. Eat in or take out.

This place has a great atmosphere, with a beautiful outdoor seating area. There are plenty of homemade treats for purchase and I have never been disappointed by the food! Fantastic home cooked meals each time, with agreeable prices. Every time I go in they are always busy! The girls at the counter are always so sweet and helpful. This place... More

I totally agree with other reviewers about the nice country setting and the cosy atmosphere! I also understand that this establishment is under new ownership as of late 2014. I will also simply state the black and white of our experience. Each of us ordered a bowl of borscht with scones, $5 each. We then ordered a Reuben sandwich to... More

I have heard reports that Friesen's has been put on the market. Perhaps this establishment will eventually become different in style. It has a keen following for its current format. I have visited for breakfast twice, with a family group, and found the dining room lively and busy both times. The overall warm atmosphere of Friesen's is created by the... More
