Small local neighborhood breakfast place that is unpretentious and very affordable. The offer the usual stuff but also some daily specials that change often. Service can be spotty when it's busy and you have to wait outside in line for a table during the busy periods (usually Sunday mornings) which turns some people off. We've been going for many years...

Food quality and service is average. I had the vegetarian eggs benedict and that was good. We think it is good value for money. Staff was friendly and service was good today- however, it was really slow last time i went.

There can be a short wait, but they do a good job of keeping things moving. Not a good place for groups of more than 4. Good omelettes, pancakes, home fries, eggs Benedict, etc.

I love Renee's. It is my favorite breakfast joint in the area. Yesterday, Sunday I woke up and decided to go there for breakfast at 8am. I had a waffle with real maple syrup [costs $1 extra for real maple syrup]. I also had a side of bacon. I love the atmosphere of this casual, funky place. They never rush... More

Very cute little café that serves very good brunch. We tried the pancakes and the waffles, both were really good. The staff is very friendly, and the food is not pricy at all. It can get crowded on w-ends but the atmosphere is very nice, lots of families there and children running around. one of my favourite places for brunch.
