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

The food, as always, was excellent. The service was good, too; friendly and quick. However, I did find that the service was rushed ~ I hadn't been there in some time due that I always feel rushed (it's not like we take a long time to eat, either, we do understand in and out...business for them) but it always tends...

I discovered this small restaurant after moving to this city and ever since I've been coming here with my wife for breakfast on weekend for almost every weekend since. We end up always eating the same things but the menu is HUGE, there's something for everybody. Adding on extras is really easy and the staff is very accomodating not to... More

Food mediocre for the price they are charging, the place is very cramped, very noisy, and it looks like the staff is hired based on their looks rather than what they have in their brains

Good ingredients, nice staff - always filling your cup with coffee. Although a bit pricy, the food is well worth it. Usually have the eggs benedict, but have had many other good meals. It's nice that they include fruit with their dishes. We never go anywhere else because it cannot be matched in the area. It is also right beside... More
