Delicious but giant portions

We had a late supper, and definitely got more than we were expecting. Food was delicious but our eyes were bigger than our stomachs. Definitely a recommendation for others and definitely gonna come back next time. With a bigger hunger that is.

This place isn't as friendly as it used to be. The food is good, basic, diner food. But the service is lacking. Not even a smile. And if you ask for something, or suggest something isn't quite right... you are blacklisted! Disappointed as we stop here all the time when passing through. But sadly, not next time.

Stopped in for lunch on our way up country. We had kids in tow. Food was good and service was great. The prices ran a bit steep for what the place is, but the quality was good so I can't really complain.

We stopped in for lunch and had basic fare. Service was good, portions were hearty and the prices were reasonable. I had eggs, sausages, hashbrowns and toast. I had them scramble the eggs - they were cooked perfectly and fluffy. The shredded hashbrowns portion was huge - but delicious enough that I didn't share with my tablemates! The sausages were...

After reading some reviews they seemed quite mixed. Well I had a great experience. I had one of the soups of the day. It was excellent. Tasted homemade and not out of a can. Very yummy. It was a three bean soup. With that I had the grilled cheese with bacon. Excellent with cheddar cheese and maple smoked bacon. Mmmmm... More

We were hungry after a day of wandering about town. We had to wait for a table as this place was busy! After fifteen or so minutes, we were seated. The food was good, the service was good, but they were slammed, and it showed. But all in all, it was pretty good.

Greeted by an incredibly rude staff; at first we took to be an irate customer until we saw him clearing tables, unfriendly, unhelpful, definitely won't visit again. Lots of better places to eat near by.

Fast, efficient and friendly service. Large portions, of medium quality food – the Salmon Caesar uses tinned salmon for example. Good house wine, (Mission Ridge), well priced, ($22 per litre) large selection of various types of burgers for $ 12 and up. An excellent alternative if the queues at "Home" bother you

When we arrived. The manager was so rude. We told him we needed a table for two. He immediately told us. 5, 4, 2.. are the people ahead of you. So you'll be here awhile. We walked out and left. I advise you go not during peak times.

Went for lunch here today, cute little place.. Horribly rude waitress. She was cold to her customers. I watched her serve a very nice older couple and she did not smile at them once and seemed very annoyed at their questions. It actually made me very sad. We also did an order change 49 seconds after we ordered and she... More
