We were there a week ago. It was terrible from start to finish. We should have turned around and walked out when we were placed at a table with table cloth stained with tomato. Restaurant is run down and not inviting. My husband ordered their buffet and "fresh -- just off the spit, chicken"!!! I ordered a hamburg and french-fries... More

Change for the worse. Not clean. Breakfast is ok, not great. Simple sandwich or the like not terrible but nothing special. Slow service. No originality.

We have been several times for breakfast and it has always been good. We have never had to wait to be seated and the coffee is always up right away with plenty of refills if needed. The food is hot fresh and good value for money. We have never been in for anything other than breakfast, but the rest of... More

What a terrible experience! Waited for 10 minutes to get seated - another 15 to have a waitress come to our table! Asked for coffee, water and an iced tea! Tea and coffee came but no water and the coffee was cold! Sent coffee back and waited ages to get the coffee and water! We ordered a bowl of soup... More

Complete full breakfast menu as they serve all day breakfast, a 2 sided hamburger menu when endless varieties of gourmet burgers served on a large European crusty square bun which incl endless fries and coleslaw. And their full regular menu which offers EVERYTHING you could imagine, from liver and onions, to... More

At one time we had a reliable restaurant called Whiteys. The food was the one sure thing that would have us come back time after time. The servers were prompt and pleasant. Then they closed shop and moved over to the Giant Tiger mall across the road. After a stint in the food court they somehow amalgamated with Christians. Service... More
