Tasty breakfast

A bit on a pricey side for a breakfast place, but the quality of food was excellent. Nice service too. They have traditional hash-browns omelettes and frittatas as well as healthie choices with salads and salmon.

This restaurant came highly recommended to me by a local, so I thought it would be great. However, I came away so disappointed, I doubt I'll return. If I was to rate three "hallmarks" of good diner service, I expect the following, of which this establishment fell short on all three counts: - smile / welcome upon entering - inquiry... More

I went there with two of my friends because it was decently higher rated. We saw them carrying out two burgers. They 'looked' really good. We ordered them. They tasted like somewhat bad tasting meatloaf on a bun. The meat crumbled away as we were eating it. The two of us that got burgers did not care for them. I... More

Not much to say, we waited for ten minutes watching other patrons seated after us get menus and served coffee while we were totally ignored. If your not from around this here town, I think you're outta luck.

This is the best place in town to get soup and a great home made sandwich. Their treats are really good too.

Tried to eat here on a Saturday but being that I was on a work break I didn't have time to line up. Not that it's not worth the lineup but I didn't have time. Came back at 1145 on a Monday & got one of the last 4 tables! Torn between lunch & breakfast menu I settled on the... More

Brunch time was busy but there was a long wait for service and a longer wait for food, extra coffee took ten minutes. I thought the food, crab cakes with poached eggs was just average, not in any way outstanding and we certainly won't be rushing back, average is what it was. Maybe we made the wrong choice at the...

Pastrami sandwich to figuratively die for. I am so glad we ordered one to split between two adults as it was massive, tasty, yummy Oh.My.Gosh. The best! No reservations, if the tables are full.. you wait. Do wait, it's well worth it!

Stumbled upon this place heading back up to Whistler. An independent place with a great breakfast menu and decent lunch choice too. We had a selection from each menu and everyone (7 in total) were happy. They drag tables together to suit your group size and the service has a degree of local charm. There is no 'corporate' training here... More
