We just enjoyed a wonderful brunch on Easter weekend. Stratford was the midpoint between Kitchener and Lucan where family members were from. We went on the internet to find a good breakfast place and chose "Let Them Eat Cake". We were a little concerned that previous reviews had noted slow service and we were a group of 10 including 2...

Visiting the downtown and thought we try this place never having been inside. Pleasant atmosphere and fairly extensive menu. That's the end of the plus side. Service terrible and we waited forever to be attended to. Orders made and eventually drinks arrived with the coffee spilt all down the sides of the mugs. When the food arrived the soup, although...

Nice little place that I frequented for breakfast. Everything takes time--a lot of time--from being seated, to placing your order, to paying your bill. I thought it was just me, but then noticed everyone is kept waiting as they always seem to be short-staffed. The waitresses are very friendly, however, once you do get seated and served. It's very busy... More

It was our first visit and we had breakfast. The place was busy and the staff kept up. This was a pretty basic breakfast as the clue is how a place does home fries: fresh-cut potatoes, onions, maybe some red pepper bits. Not here. They use McCain hash browns. Booorrring. The bakery is something else. I am a pushover for... More

I've been here twice. One was a suggestion from a friend visiting from out of town who liked the name. The second was a suggestion from a friend who also lives in town who likes the chicken pesto. I will not be back. The food is below average, the service is slow (even when it is not busy) and the... More

Every year, we go to Stratford to catch some plays, wander along the beautiful river, check out some shops and have some nice meals. For years, we have usually included this restaurant in our plans. It was always a great place to go for terrific desserts or a hearty breakfast in a nice, casual atmosphere. Then the restaurant relocated a... More

The venue was very pleasant and cheerful...and, surprisingly, there was a bar. The baked goods looked fabulous, but we had breakfast food, which was fair. We were not inclined to make a second visit, but perhaps next year, we will. It looks absolutely lovely, and we want it to be good!

I found food to be good; however, there was a large crowd, and even though I mentioned a few times about a 2:00 curtain, I found the service to be wanting.

Stratford is always a wonderful day away. Let Them Eat Cake is a place I return to often for lunch. This is a place where the atmosphere is casual and relaxing. I have consistently received good food and pleasant servers while there. The scones are amazing served with a hot cup of tea.The paninis are also good. I go here... More
