Great Homemade Food But Expensive

The food was very good. I had the grilled cheese and it was very good the bread was fresh, (They make almost everything from scratch). The cheese was great and not greasy like some grilled cheeses I've had. They even make the ketchup in house fresh, and it really make the meal that much more... read more

Always a full plate of really good eats at this little treasure of a restaurant. Karen and the staff treat you like family.

For the price ($80 for four people), wholly not worth it. Selection very minimal and basic, eggs Benny were dry and crunchy, pancakes, too. Nice fruit, nice patio is the best I can say..... Would not return.

Warm, woody decor, and fast, friendly service ( once you get past the lineup at the order desk!!!) Iced coffee served up in a mason jar... BTW, no WIFI here!! The KITCHEN was runnng a little...

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!
