Fresh hot fries

We were here during a busy lunch time so the service was pretty slow. But I had a delicious bacon, avocado and Swiss grilled cheese and the fries were fresh cut, hot and crunchy.

Place seems to have become a victim of its own success. It is always busy on the weekends but service is extremely slow and the majority of the servers seem to have a 'couldn't care less' attitude. We have been 3 times in the last two months and this past Sunday was our last time. Food is ok, not great.... More

Great place for breakfast. Hip and reasonably priced. Fast or slow to stay as long as you want. Nice portions.

What a great place to get in a mega amount of calories before heading off for a day of hiking! The general decor is typical diner but the service and food are great. Definitely a local hang out and once you go you will know why.

I travelled through Squamish a few weeks ago, so I don't remember the details of this restaurant. However, I do remember the service from multiple staff was particularly nice - real people who asked questions and didn't just quote a script. I recall the food was also pretty yummy, and everyone in my family powered through lunch with gusto.

Had breakfast here, when we stayed in Squamish over night. I was directed to this restaurant by a local as this is breakfast hot spot! This place was busy, so we found a seat and the waitress came over a couple of minutes later with menus and asked us what we would like to drink. My friend had water and... More

We were here on a Sunday morning, lots of tables available for the four of us, we sat down, got our coffees and gave our orders, and then the 20 or so people on the Harly Davidson's pulled up and came in. Their orders were taken and they all got their food before we did. We waited close to an... More
