Mark's...maybe

Neat restaurant décor. Good selection of CDN/AMER. menu. A little pricey. Located in "East City" on Lansdowne. Courteous staff.

Not good at all. Small brunch with warmed up food. Ordered an omelete watched the dirty cook put his fingers in it to pull something out of it. The bacon tasted like it was cooked yesterday and just rewarmed. Would not call this a buffet as there was not much to choose from. Would have been better staying at hotel... More

Would definitely return here if back in Peterborough. Our group (Atom hockey team plus sibs and parents) enjoyed a delicious Sat am breakfast brunch and returned that night for dinner where we had the entire upstairs reserved. The atmosphere is spacious but warm and cozy with fireplaces and exposed log and timber design. The staff were amazing and prepared a... More

The food is home made and always good. It may take a little longer to arrive at your table but is worth the wait. Nothing processed here!!!! The staff is always friendly and helpful and Mark is always around to make sure everything is done to your liking.

Went in Saturday for breakfast with family, the next morning went back with different family members. If your looking for elegant matching plates and coffee mugs, go somewhere else. If your interest is family friendly, great service, very good filling breakfast, then yes this is your stop

Our food was horrible!! We came on a Wednesday evening at 6pm sharp. We had their 'chili' fries to start as it was a favorite -as per their menu. I'm not sure how anyone could make it a favorite let alone tolerate it! I ordered their stuffed chicken special, my husband had their pork snitzel, and my daughter had chicken... More

Went with family, all adults, total of 12 people. The place is crowded and the décor is interesting.....service is not the friendliest or the quickest. The buffet area is very small and only adds to the crowding as multiple people are waiting for omelettes, waffles etc. Coffee refills were not brought until asked for which is not great. Having said... More
