We are regular customers, and i'm sure we will continue to be regular customers at this 50's diner in Cambridge Ontario. First of all, we've never been disappointed with the food, nor the service. And for my birthday July 6th, my whole family and i went to have supper there. The variety is always fun and pleases everyone. But, when... More

If your looking for fine dining this is not the place. If you want a very good meal, big portion and reasonable value, this will please you. The staff are friendly, efficient and service has always been quick. Try the souvlaki platter. To die for.

I love their smoked meat plates. Had breakfast once , it was the worst I ever had. Can't even describe it. A frozen breakfast out of a box would have been better

Actually have only eaten breakfast and lunch here. Breakfast was good. The 2 smoked meat sandwiches for lunch is a great value...doggie bag for sure! At breakfast, there is usually a line up out both front doors...there is good reason for that. Food is good, staff is friendly I stop there wheneverr I can.

Given the cost, quality and quantity of the food, this is a great place. Generous servings, good wait staff, fast service and hot food. It is a family restaurant so do not expect silence. For what it is, it does it well! If you want the Charcoal Steakhouse, then best go there.

I always stop here for breakfast on my way through to southwestern Ontario. I had a delicious breakfast of a fruit boat with many different kinds of fruit, a bowl of cottage cheese and a toasted bagel with endless coffee. The service is always friendly and efficient. I'd eat here more often if it were closer!

When my family come to visit with 2 children from Toronto and join our Family of 3, this is the place they want to eat. The choice of food including special orders seems endless. A casual atmosphere, but always fast and friendly service. Outstanding value for the amount of food offered, rarely leave without a "Box". It is also the... More
