We especially enjoy breakfast at Trader Duke's, and make a point of dropping in when we are in the neighbourhood. They often have a special menu concoction that includes local fare, whether that be maple syrup, other local, seasonal vegetables such as pumpkin, or locally-sourced protein... Nicely done !! Alicia has often been our server, and she is phenomenal -... More

We went to this restaurant for occasional late breakfasts or diner type suppers. Loved the tables near the fire place, very pleasant. Then things got greasy and sloppy, a restaurant only gets one chance from me if I am not happy that is it, way too many restaurants around here to put up with mediocre ones.

Went out for dinner on vacation. Had no intention of spending hours at dinner. Slowest service in a practically empty restaurant with four servers on. Waited forty minutes to be told "we're out of spinach dip". Food was good but certainly not worth the ridiculously long wait.

Good hash browns, omelettes made to order, tasty juice and enjoyed the maple sausage. Fruit plate was fine for winter selection, coffee ok too. Service was excellent, with our waitress coming back to refill juice and take our plates when done, quick response to request for ketchup, and generally pleasant atmosphere. The breakfast filled us up nicely and worked out... More

We went to Trader Dukes for their Sunday breakfast buffet. They served made to order omelets and eggs that were well made with a nice array of choices. The buffet had eggs benedict, waffles with strawberries, whipped cream and syrup available, as well as bacon, sausage, potatoes, and fresh cut melon. It was a nice spread that met our needs... More

We stopped for breakfast and were disappointed. The food was mediocre & very highly priced at $32 for 2 people. The service was adequate but nothing memorable. The atmosphere with a fire place however, was special. We do not plan to return & would not recommend this as a restaurant. There are many others in the area who serve far... More
