Met with friends at Le Matinal in Aylmer and it was a great breakfast, complete with excellent fresh fruit. Our server, a nice French lady, was phenomenal -- very attentive without being intrusive. The food was great and all elements of everyone's breakfast were well executed. Pleasant enough decor, quite busy, but we didn't have to wait. I would definitely... More

Been coming to eat here off and on over the last few years and the food's always been pretty good and the decor (while hasn't changed much other than a new coat of paint) makes you feel at home. The staff are friendly and pleasant. Had my usual 2 eggs, sausage breakfast special and everything was fairly decent. Potatoes could... More

I have been going to the matinal since I was a little girl but it certainly is a different atmosphere now than it was back then. This owner has been around for quite a while, I've never heard good things about her from staff or customers. I know many regular customers have not returned because she is rude to both... More

Was here for breakfast twice in the last couple of months and was disapointed by the appearance of the restaurant in the sense that the decor hasn't changed for many years even though the owners have changed. And speaking of the owners... boy are they bossy!! Instead of pulling their employees aside to inform them how she would like them... More

We went in for breakfast a few times and had decent experiences. However, the last time we went for a visit the owner was there and took us to our seats. We did not have any idea as to who she was other than an employee working at matinal. My husband asked her if he could have a coffee and... More

Met a friend for Sunday brunch. Service was friendly, lots of items to choose from, portions are gpod size, price is right... although I like my bacon cooked into my omelette it tasted good. Would go back.

Overall the food is OK. BUT the home fries... sometimes they are fine but about half the time we have eaten here, they are undercooked. I don't know about you, but I hate a raw potato! Everything else is fine. The sauce on the eggs benedict could use some work, a bit watery for my taste and obviously from a... More

My friends and I had to get back to Toronto after a stay at the Double Tree Hilton down the road. This place was recommended by the concierge. Beautiful atmosphere, excellent and friendly service and delicious food which has generous portions. Best poutine ever. Will definitely stop by next time I'm in the area
