We arrived around the usual supper hour, and the restaurant was nearly full, and very busy. We thought it would be quite a while being served. Much to our delight, the meals were brought within 15 minutes and all were piping hot. My deep-fried cod, one of my favourites, was right out of the fryer and stayed hot the entire... More

Came her with my family and we all got eggs benny. Hollandaise sauce was watery with no favour and nothing tasted fresh. Server and atmosphere was nice, but is the food is not good there is little anyone can do to make it good.

One of the few restaurants still open at 9pm on a Sunday evening, food was nice and the service very good, between us we went for the ribs and a curry based on a recipe from the founder. Very enjoyable and much appreciated after a long drive.

Our waitress was quite efficient and we told her so. My wife has a hearing aid and a microphone and she was quite interested in our equipment. The food was pretty good and so was the location. Better than most of the White Spots we have been in during the last year.

Close to the hotel. Food is typical White Spot which we like. The seating is either booth or table depending on where you sit.

My husband and I decided to stop for some breakfast after shopping earlier today and had a wonderful meal and great service. Also ended up buying their new White Spot Cookbook. What a great deal that was too, $14.95 plus you get two $5.00 coupons to use in the New Year. We always have had good food here, comfort food... More
