Great experience!

My boyfriend and I came here for breakfast. The buffet was amazing and the service was great. When you come, ask for Jose! He won't let you leave hungry!

Jose truly is one of our best! He's just one if the many perks of attending our breakfast buffet. If you're a fan of our breakfast, we highly recommend trying our Sunday Brunch the next time that you are in town. Until then, Simon McLinden More

The service was wonderful. Very personal and attentive. The food was great with lots of choices. On top of it all they had a very good musician who was happy to sing songs for our young children. Highly recommended!

Their brunch is excellent. This place is a hidden gem. And the service was the best we received in a restaurant on a 7 day trip to Nova Scotia - and that is saying something.

I come to this restaurant at least once a month. The Saturday brunch buffet is excellent and Jose the waiter is first class. Jose makes the whole experience and even though it's a buffet, he totally pampers the customer. The food is excellent and the ambience is calm and elegant. I recommend this place to locals and visitors very often!

The overall dining experience was perfect. We were treated like absolute royalty by the waiter, Deepak. Left with smiles on our faces, full satisfied bellies and feeling a little more than spoiled by the flawless service we received.

Decided to try the buffet breakfast at this highly recommended location but disappointed. I expect we arrived at a bad time (10:45am) as most food stations in buffet empty or nearly empty. We were promised that the food was going to be refreshed shortly but 30+ minutes later only the juice was topped up. Ordered an omelet from cook who... More

The food was very good and reasonably priced -but we had a few glasses ( 6 ) of the local beer and got dinged about $45.00 plus tax and tip for that which kind of soured the experience a bit
