Meals took 45 mins. My eggs looked revolting, overdone and disintegrating...after being dumped on the table the waitress scowled and asked if I wanted new eggs, she knew she served a substandard meal but hoped I wouldn't care. The side of avocado was 3 tiny slices of half brown avocado for $5. The fourth meal just never arrived, apparently they... More

Once the person standing next to me admiring her pricing on the food cabinet decided to go to the other side and serve me, we were under way. Difficulty in trying to understand my simple order but the Chef heard and clarified. Coffee and eggs great.

We had breakfast at Mountain Rock cafe on one particularly cold morning, so the heat inside was welcome. Service was not overly friendly, although not unfriendly either. Just so-so. My wife had Eggs Benedict and she said it was the worst she ever had - soggy, and with only teeny-weeny little pieces of bread.

We dined here twice and found the basic menu adequate for our needs. The food was presented well and waste tasteful. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We went in for a breakfast a few weeks ago and all the staff were miserable, unfriendly and unwelcoming.Should have stayed a video store. Went up the road to the cafe next to BNZ and received a warm country welcome and hearty breakfast.

It is a cross between a nice restaurant and a pub, and you could feel like you are in either one depending on where you sit. The waiter/bartender was very energetic and helpful, and let us sample some of the beers we weren't familiar with. The food is good.
