Great place for sweets, cakes,tarts etc. stay away from the prime beef.it was over cooked and precooked. The Yorkshire pudding was burnt and hard as a rock? Waitress was rude. When told pudding was hard she was indignant and said that was normal, but went and got two more, which were somewhat softer but still not a good pudding. Waitress... More

My wife and I had a good dinner here last year and decided to try the restaurant for breakfast. We really enjoyed the homey atmosphere and great breakfast. My wife had eggs benedict with hollandaise sauce and I had eggs, Mennonite bacon, home fries and toast. Very tasty and good quality and quantity. Service was friendly and efficient. Would eat...

Lots of people are very excited about the scones here, but I find them a bit dry and heavy, also quite large. Sandwiches and salads are okay, and there is a fair bit of choice, so this is a decent place to pop into for a quick lunch.

The food here is great! We had some problem finding them as they moved since we were last were recommended to go there, but I'm glad we persisted. Our server was very friendly, making everyone feel welcome, but was she ever over worked! If you are a big breakfast eater, you'll love this place. If you aren't, consider it brunch!

We used to think this place was a solid 3.5, but after tonight, it's a 1. No doubt. Arrived to be informed that All Day Breakfast doesn't mean all day. Ok, whatever. But, the chef can make a basic breakfast if we want. Great. Thanks for doing one thing on your all day breakfast menu - two poached eggs, home... More

It's hard to find great, homemade food anywhere, especially in a 'tourist town' but Let Them Eat Cake has it all! Great tasting, not processed homemade food - chicken quesadillas were the best I've ever had - fresh tasting tomatoes, green peppers, cheddar cheese and grilled chicken. Chalk board specials updated daily - I recommend anything on that list, like... More

We had lunch at this restaurant. The beet salad was very nice, and the chicken quesadillas were delicious.

We ate breakfast there a couple of times and enjoyed it. Pastries were terrific. See complaints about being understaffed. It seemed that they were but the service was actually pretty good. The waiter and waitress we had moved very fast and efficiently and anticipated our needs.

I felt it was over priced and smells bad when you walk in. I would not go back. There is a lot of potential there!

I go to the Stratford Festival every summer, and leaving without scones from this bake shop has become unthinkable. Don't know much about the restaurant, but the scones are biscuit-tender, freshly made, and offered in a variety of mouthwatering flavors—including blueberry-cranberry, raisin-currant, cinnamon-apple, and cheddar. With a cup of coffee, it powered half my drive home (and made me tap... More
