This place isn't very big, probably seats somewhere around 40 or 50 people, but the food is good & plentiful. It has been around for quite a number of years so that speaks to it's quality. A lot of their dinners are also offered as 1/2 dinners, which is what my wife did with her liver meal & she had... More

My wife and I visited Durham Cafe for an evening meal. We were heartily welcomed into a non-pretentious atmosphere. Wonderful salads, hearty soups and local home-cooked specialities. We'd go back at any time. Loved it.

If you want a really good breakfast with great tasting coffee, in a friendly atmosphere, then this is the place for you. The waitress is friendly and attentive, and your coffee cup never runs dry. The breakfast food is well prepared and tasty. Prices are reasonable, and there is sufficient parking around the back. You won't be disappointed. God Bless.

Smaller Cafe with a very relaxed atmosphere. Food is great home cooked meals and service excellent. No outdoor seating available and I'm not sure if reservations are accepted. Cafe is quite busy so come early for supper on weekends. Menu has a very good selection of dishes to choose from.

I had Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. EXCELLENT! Hubby had bacon eggs - you can't go wrong with that! Diner type atmosphere, dated, but very clean - spotless! Waitress was quick to come to our table - the place was very busy - one cook in the kitchen and the food came out very quickly. The kitchen knows how to... More

We have been there many times for breakfast. Outstanding. But we tried lunch and disappointed. Long wait for food. Cole slaw not to our liking. Very bitter. Fries seemed crisp at first but limp soon. Breakfast great but would not go back for any other meal.

I have been to the Durham Café close to 100 times. I have taken dozens of friends and they all are now regulars. The food is second no other restaurant in Lindsay and probably Peterborough and Oshawa too. Yes sometimes it's crowded but what does that tell you? It tells you people really LIKE it there and they will give... More
