Great breakfast place

A little hard to find at first but worth looking...Louise's is a great place for breakfast. The menu is varied with everything from buckwheat pancakes to machaca, there's something for everyone. The service is good and the food comes out quickly. The coffee is a little pricier per cup than other... read more

Loiuse's is one of the best breakfast spots around. I have enjoyed many dishes all were delicious. The staff are happy and do a great job.

First let me say I will return to Louise's. It is a nice, clean restaurant with good food served in huge portions. The only reason I can't give it four stars, is because I don't think the hollandaise sauce was made from scratch. I have had better many times. The buckwheat pancakes were slightly undercooked according to my wife. The... More

They obviously have it down to a science here. Everything is fast and when we've been there, the wait staff is efficient and friendly. The menu is pretty standard for a breakfast spot. There are no imaginative or unusual items on the menu, so if you want a pretty standard breakfast, this is a good place.

Great food and service! Two of us had breakfast and two of us opted for lunch. All four satisfied and two of us left with take out containers. Mimosas were delicious (and free) thanks to a checkin offer from another social media site.

This is an extremely popular local restaurant specialising in breakfast and lunch with most ordering breakfast. It`s busy most of the time so be prepared to wait. If you are 1-2 people, a sit at the counter option is a faster way to go. They have some homemade jams and jellies with numerous options for menu selections including pancakes and... More

If you are a breakfast eater this is the place. But come hungry, as this is not a place for the meek. Great food, great service. And as busy as it is all the time the kitchen gets the food out to you very quick.
