Great Breakfast

The made to order omelettes are great. Sourdough toast too. Many of the staff have been there for years and it's a team effort on service. Seating outside on a warm day is nice.

We went her twice for Sunday Brunch. Both times we got seated right away, on the patio. Nice Menu. Food was good. As was the service. They let dogs on the patio, which was so nice cause we were missing ours. Parking is good, may have to go behind but that's not too bad. You want good food, good service,... More

Friends had raved about it but our lunch was ho-hum at best. A group of us lunched here and I wish it had lived up to the endorsement. My pastrami sandwich came on rye that was all fluff and no substance. A true pastrami sandwich deserves the proper rye bread. Coleslaw also bland. Fish and chips voted average. Spinach salad...

The food was good but nothing to go out of the way for. The service was fine. We first went here for breakfast and the pancakes were good, we came back for the Cabbage Rolls as they were listed online by another reviewer. They were twice as high as the previous reviewer and were really nothing special. I had the... More

Don & Sweet Sue's cafe is well know for breakfasts. They have an exceptionally detailed list of options. However they also have lunch meals as well. We went here for lunch recently. The service is informal and not rushed. The food was fresh and portions were generous. The wine is generic by tolerable. Worth a stop for the experience if... More

Nice restaurant and food was good. I had a hot turkey sandwich and it was lukewarm. Had the kitchen take it back and nuke it and it then was fine. Prices were reasonable. Food was slow coming out of the kitchen for some reason. They didn't seem that busy. Can't remember what my husband ordered but know my son had... More
