Great little diner...

A large group of us (10) had breakfast there, and while service was a tad slow, the food was very good. Everyone's meal was as ordered, fresh and hot, and LARGE! Will definitely eat here again.

Love Rose and Kelly, they are the reason I came to Ladysmith! I did an event at the restaurant and they treated me really well. The food was incredible and I am coming back again in April to do another event! This place is great!

Skip KFC if one ever comes this way! The folks are sweet and portions are generous! It's all made fresh to order. They do takeout...sit and wait or call ahead.

Went to Ladysmith for my first time running errands. My in laws suggested eating here. Waitress was nice. My food was BURNT. Like if I dropped it on a tile floor it would almost break tile burnt. Maybe the cook was having an off day or something. I probably won't eat there again though.

I was disappointed when the waitress told me they were out of mashed potatoes, but the baked one did just fine on my hot beef plate. I recommend this dish -- it is excellent. My two dining companions had sandwiches which they enjoyed, as well. The waitress was sweet and paced the dinner. This is where I go for my... More

This is your average small town cafe that offers an excellent breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Everytime I'm in Ladysmith I'll stop in the BDC for a great meal before I head out into the woods or out on the water for the day. The prices are reasonable too!
