We were walking by, so stopped in for a bite.

Hubby just wanted a sweet bite, but I convinced him to let us stop for lunch. We enjoyed our quiches (about 6 choices), and when I saw they had tomato/cabbage soup, I ordered some of that, which I liked as well. I would have liked some ground beef in it. Hubby couldn't miss having his fern tart... read more

I cannot imagine how this place recieves any good reviews. Food was terrible. Montreal smoked meat was not "piled high" as stated in their advertisments. It was cut very thick & was tough. Could barely chew it. No coleslaw served with it as also stated in the advertisments. The quiche was heated in a microwave & so the crust was... More

Retro Baked goods recipes from the 50's/60's with the warmth and friendliness of your mom at a Church supper. The must haves are the Hello Dollies and the Cheese & onion bagels (2 dozen for the road always) but call ahead to make sure they have them.

Do not go to Dutch Oven for your events! Recently had them cancel on my wedding less than 2 WEEKS prior to the event. The manager was not friendly at all, made my parents feel like they had done something wrong, and poorly managed the whole situation in a very negative way, She was very secretive, defensive and not clear...

Coffee was fine, dessert was yummy but the place seemed dated and not very clean. I think it would be good with a fresh coat of paint, some upgraded seating and more light.

I paid 8.75 for a plate full of food +coffee (and + tax). Being from Toronto I am not use to seeing such value at any restaurant and was really taken aback by my plate when it quickly arrived after ordering. "Hungry Man's Breakfast" was an impressive meal, it I had gone back to a time when our dollar was... More

We attend the Cobourg Waterfront Festival every year and this time we got there during the weekday before the event opened. We wanted to have a quick lunch and stopped in to the Dutch Oven. We ordered their Chicken Pot Pie, a Grilled Cheese Sandwich and a Death By Chocolate Gluten Free Cupcake. It was simple food and the whole... More

Have eaten in and had takeout from this spot for over 2 decades. Always good old fashioned food like your mother used to make. Often have soup and sandwich for lunch and it always hits the spot.

The ambience is very dated and in need of an overhaul, yet I return time and again to this restaurant because the simple home cooking, excellent white sugar and white flour baked goods and the price simply cannot be beat. Some of the staff can be curt but most are welcoming and kind.

We like eating here for two main reasons. The atmosphere and decor are definitely "unique" - with no pretensions to be other than some kind of throwback to the mid-20th century. It looks like it hasn't changed since Day 1, and feels like one of those places where a renovation could spell the kiss of death. Secondly the food is... More
