Overall good experience

Food was really good. Was expecting Chuck E Cheese caliber pizza but it tasted like real pizzeria pizza! Crust was perfect and sauce was excellent. Only negative thing was our waiter. Wasn't terrible but he kept saying I'm not usually over here, trying to get my act together, and it took a long... read more

Awesome place to go for the breakfast buffet rather than going out. Great selection like at z cafe but just breakfast as opposed to brunch.

This place small and the food isn't great. The best part is the breakfast buffet and the Cow Path Beer.

The service and food were good and prices quite reasonable, but not much on the menu (especially the children's menu) that could be classed as healthy.

Wasted alot of water park time trying to use my voucher for the breakfast buffet this morning. Big big mob of people waiting outside, less than half the tables occupied and NO hostess anywhere to be found, nobody seemed interested in getting anyone seated etc. This is for a buffet too, you know, where people just serve themselves. Was eventually... More

The breakfast buffet was very tasty with a nice variety and healthy choices. The wait was long however and the area is small with tightly packed tables that makes walking to and from the buffet difficult.

We came for breakfast on a Sunday, we arrived around 9:30am and there was about a 20 minute wait, but we had a larger party. Once seated it was a little dirty, some syrup and jelly still left on seats and the high chairs, I wish the staff had been a little more attentive to cleaning up after the last... More

Big selection, fresh food - including fresh squeezed OJ. Service was quick. Get there early - it was starting to get packed when we left.
