Good food

I have gone here since I was a little kid with my parents. They still have good food at a reasonable price. My wife loves their onion soup, and I will usually get the burger. I hope they stay where they're at as the whole area seems to be under major renovations and this building is the only... read more

On a trip to visit the nearby Royal Botanical Gardens, we stopped for lunch, based on the positive Tripadvisor reviews. I suppose you could call us "foodies" if you have to be contemporary. We like fresh food, carefully prepared. If you fall into this category, think twice about Mr. Williams. This restaurant is what I would call a classic "greasy... More

If you want a delicious home-cooked breakfast, this is the place to come. The service is fast, the waitresses are personable and friendly, and the food is great. It has a cozy ambience. It is not hard to understand why it gets busy in the mornings.

This is one of my favourite breakfast stops. It gets really busy on the weekends, so go early or be prepared to wait. The decor is retro old school and so are the waitresses :) Nothing fancy or remarkable, just delicious food at a great price. Never had a meal other than breakfast, so can't comment on anything further.

Awesome old school breakfasts. The lineups out the door on the weekends attest to that. Worth a visit just for the waitress who can remember 8 breakfast orders without writing anything down. Pass on their dinners and stick with what they do best.

Definitely a "go-to" place for breakfast...or brunch...we usually go in the afternoon on the weekend. I have the breakfast - 2 eggs with sausage & home fries and I sub my toast for a pancake. My hubby usually gets the hot turkey or roast beef and really likes it. My Dad was the one that turned me on to this... More

While this was our first visit here, it certainly won't be our last. My wife and I went for a late breakfast on a Sunday and the place was packed and for good reason. We watched a variety of breakfast dishes being served and everything looked great. We ordered the Russel Williams special which includes eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, home... More

I was quite taken with this little diner on the main drag through Burlington. The food was very good, the environs were quaint and the service was excellent. The prices were also quite reasonable. I had luncheon appointment with a colleague and we chose this place as a convenient meeting point. I took the train from Windsor and got off... More
