Great Breakfast

I ate at this restaurant with a friend last week, the place was very busy which is always a good sign, the food was excellent the coffee was very good and the price was very reasonable, we asked for the special of the day, the total bill was less than 15 dollars. The home fries are very good!

This place hasn't aged. The decor and menu are straight up family style. The service is outstanding. I took my 86yr old Grandmother and she LOVED it! I enjoyed it too and there were young people, couples, families, the list goes on. The menu is exactly what you'd expect, including the all day breakfast. Mixed veg were the good 'ole,... More

This is the quintessential greasy spoon restaurant, but with great simple food. Definitely not fine dining or anywhere near it; but they aren't trying for that. Amazing breakfasts, good lunches and dinners with typical meals....liver and onions, open face beef and turkey sandwiches, club sandwiches, daily soups, hamburgers, grilled cheese...all served up quickly by friendly, experienced waitresses that manage to...

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.

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 one left.

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.
