I have been going to this place for years and it never disappoints. The inside has been redone and the booths are quite comfy. The menu is quite extensive. I had the southwest wrap and it was very good. Only minor complaint is that I ordered salad as my side and I wish it had come together as a meal... More

Going out to eat at John's is like saying you are going out to eat at a friend's house. You know exactly what to expect, so no surprises and consistently good food.There are good portions, and they deliver exactly what the menu describes. Dishes are not overly spiced or exotic, but they are well-presented and appealing. Perfect for young families... More

Okay...it's a diner...and yes it's 5 stars! It's been in operation for 45 years and claims "Great Home Cooking" I have to agree it is great home style cooking in a "just like home" setting! We discovered John's by accident when looking for another restaurant that was closed. Hungry and on a schedule we decided to give this place a... More

Atmosphere is a busy diner... booth seating is my preference and there is plenty of booths. Cabbage rolls are huge!! I do love the all day breakfast menu... omelets are a personal favourite!

John's restaurant was a staple of our existence when we lived in the area. It is an old style family restaurant that serves the best breakfasts, whether you fancy eggs benedict or plate sized buttermilk pancakes. Their homefries are delicious and the meals come with either bacon, peameal bacon, or sausage, or all of them!
