Great lunch, amazing price, warm hospitality

Eating at this quaint little home-style diner was was like stepping back in time. Lots of classic favorites on the menu. I went with a toasted bacon and tomato sandwich, and it was as good as anything I could have made at home, (and I am a good cook). They were not light on the bacon :) Friendly... read more

We were in Napanee & walked the river edge with our grand daughter & enjoyed a fine spring late morning. My wife mentioned it was close to lunch time & why not check out John's. A recommendation that came from our oldest son who had been there for the first time weeks earlier. We entered & were told to sit... More

Bacon and eggs and service was awesome the first time then really awful the next. The waitress never smiles but the owner is a real card.

Breakfast dining at John's transports you well back into the last century when folks had significantly different service and culinary expectations. Don't miss the experience. It's about 6:30 A. M. and John's appears to be the only open restaurant in town. Lucky me. As I entered John shouted a hearty "Sit anywhere and I'll be with you in a minute."... More

Yes, we are going back! After an appointment in Kingston, we drove through Napanee and stopped at John's Restaurant. The place we pretty empty as it was 45 minutes from closing time. John greeted us, took our order, prepared the food, served the food... and was such a delight to talk with... There were a few other customers that seemed... More
