Went here for a business lunch this morning, service is very good and food comes out fast. Never been here and was advised to try the Apple Waffle. Excellent. Comes with apple syrup and I added real maple syrup. Coffee was constantly full. Great place for breakfast.

Their pumpkin crepe's are to die for. You never have to worry about there being any leftovers when I order these. Everything I've had along with my family has been amazing and the portions are big.

The OPH is always an excellent place for quality breakfast featured items and staff services. Over 20-years of visits, and never a meal or service disappointment.
