Excellent variety on the menu

This is a cute little restaurant with a friendly atmosphere and excellent choice of food. They have high chairs available for the little ones.

this restaurant is at the foot of Johnston Road right across from Clutesi Haven Marina. They offer eat in & take out if you're in a hurry. Service is excellent, food is memorable (in a good way!), it is small though so you may want to reserve to ensure a seat!

We stumbled across as we were driving looking for dinner. Parking lot was empty and we were worried. Looked at trip advisor and reviews were pretty darn good so we went in. At first, we were the only ones there. But more people started to come in after us. The hostess who was also serving was fun, friendly and excellent.... More

Went there with some hockey parents during a tournament it was within walking distance from HOJO and Best Western. Staff was accommodating for a reservation for 13 even though they only seat about 40 in total. Food (got the greek platter sampler) and drinks were excellent. Staff was fast and friendly. Would definitely go back next time we are in... More

Super delicious breakfasts! Our family had two types of bennys and a bowl of porridge and a strawberry/banana smoothie. I couldn't have made any of it better...absolutely delicious!

Took my Dad here for breakfast on his 94 birthday. He had wonderful blueberry pancakes, eggs and bacon. I went with the Eggs Benny two ways, one traditional and one with a crab cake. It was delicious. Coffee and the service was great as well.
