The food is good quality and the servings are huge. Best to make a booking as it was packed mid-morning on a Monday! We had Huevos Rancheros and Pancakes; couldn't finish the Huevos and just got through 2 pancakes (Iowa-style). Authentic Canadian Maple syrup was extra and you only got a thimble full - don't bother.

You have to book here for sunday breakfast, which we did and were taken on time. Very busy indeed with walk ins having to wait. All our meals were of a high standard and plentiful. Toast, butter and jam was complimentary.We didn't need any lunch that day either. Best place ever for a cooked breakfast. Recommend to anyone.

My kids think it's a treat to come here it reminds them a little bit of home "America" so I have been here several times and I can tell you if you can come it without a reservation and get a table then your food will be better then If you have to book well in advanced like Father's Day... More

I chose the Drexels' Breakfast Treat with fruit salad, waffle and a latte. Everything was very tasty but the 2 slices of bread provided proved too much for 1 person! A little on the pricy side, but the serving size is large. I enjoyed sitting at the breakfast bar and watching the chefs at work. There was a lot of... More

We were looking forward to returning to Drexels after so many years but it was a bit of a let down. We were made to feel we were remiss for not booking even though we arrived when they were opening and would have been happy to sit at the bar ( or anywhere) and actually there were still plenty of...

An excellent place to go have breakfast or lunch, combining a nice interior - fresh and clean with excellent service and food. You have to wait seated in a reserve area for a few minutes whilst they arrange you but we got a seat quickly and they took our orders quickly. You get complimentary toast which is a nice touch....
