Quick and friendly service (about 3 mins between ordering and receiving my meal). Reasonable price--3 eggs, 2 pieces if toast, home fries, fruit garnish (slice of watermelon and cantaloupe), coffee + OJ for $7.68 + tip. Delicious and fresh.

We were staying at a hotel nearby and figured we'd give this place a try for breakfast because of the good reviews. I HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone in the area. The portions are HUGE, the prices are low, and the service is super friendly. I know we will return the next time we're in Toronto, we're so glad... More

Had the Chicken Souvlaki Dinner Special. Very good - garlicky chicken, rice, Greek salad and rice plus dessert for a great price. The miserable waitress tried her best to ruin our meal by being unpleasant! We chose to ignore her bad karma and even left her a tip. Apparently the weekend brunch comes with the same great food and friendly... More

Small place next to the primrose best western. Breakfast had large portions and was very good. We had eggs over easy and french toast. Came with 3 eggs and four pieces of french toast plus the buttered toast and home fries. Even a little water mellon wedge. Very good and affordable !

Very good breakfast and lunch. Morning staff is friendly and efficient. Night waitress is very stern and not welcoming. Always go before 2"pm

Stick-to-the ribs breakfast. Good coffee, prompt service. This is a no-nonsense place that probably has looked the same since the 50s--you could see Columbo (Peter Falk) walk in and feel right at home..the worn-out furniture and panel walls and the decor, such as it is, are part of the charisma. Had the (Canadian) bacon and eggs (scrambled) breakfast, served with... More

The food is very good but the servings are almost too big. The restaurant's appearance may turn a few people off but the food is worth it.

I visited Toronto by myself, from Australia in October 2013. I visited the golden Diner for breakfast one morning, because it was walking distance from my hotel. I was greeted by a friendly man and took a seat. I received a large, delicious breakfast for a very reasonable price. The restaurant staff struck up conversation with me and were very... More

This restaurant may have a good breakfast but the dinner was not good. I almost turned around and left when I walked in due to the odour and the really beat up booths. The service was not particularly friendly and the meal was poor. Homemade chicken soup was not good. Chicken Parmesan had a large slice of unmelted processed mozzarella... More

The first was a veal parmesan with spaghetti which was okay tasting but a really giant meal and the German waitress asked if anything was wrong when I could only finish half of it. The second was a Giros Dinner where the meat had obviously not been taken from a kebab roll but was pre prepared slices of exactly the... More
