Excellent Breakfast Spot

We eat here once a week when we are at the cottage for a month. The staff are friendly and remember our order and there are usually 5 or 6 of us. They make a tasty breakfast with excellent coffee.

We went to Mill Pond for breakfast this morning for the first time. There was a long line up so we figured the food had to be good. First the lady who appeared to be the owner was anything but welcoming. The service was almost non existent and less than friendly. We had the buffet breakfast and what a disappointment.... More

Thank you for your opinion. All feed back is taken very seriously. A couple of things I would like to point out. No excuses just some facts. We are nearing the end of the busiest summer we have ever had. Sunday mornings we put on average 200 people through the restaurant in a 4 hour period. This particular Sunday was... More

My girlfriends and I had started out to eat at another establishment in Minden but when we arrived we were very disappointed and stayed only for a quick drink. The Mill pond which had been our second choice really should have been our first. The food was very good, reasonably priced and the service was friendly , efficient and caring.... More

we lucked out and found the restaurant on the way to camping. We stopped and it took a long while until the food came but it was well worth waiting. It was so good we stopped again on the way home and it's right in carnarvon . The burgers are awesome and they have great coffee which we needed both... More

Nice restaurant in Karnarvon, Ontario. They have a large selection of all day breakfast. We had fish and chips and a ruben sandwich. Both were very good. The service was excellent. I would go back.

We had seen good reviews and we were nearby and tired. In fact it was only 5:25 pm but the restaurant was filling up with folks who seemed to know everyone else. I ordered fish that lacked taste. The vegetables were limp and tasteless. Disappointing.

I found this place using the TripAdvisor site. The food was delicious and served hot. Our wait staff was attentive and did an excellent job. We had a beautiful view out of our window to add to the dining experience. We will definitely go again when we are back in that region.

We visited this restaurant for the first time while meeting friends for dinner. The food was very good and the server was friendly and efficient. The decor was somewhat dated but that didn't take away from the overall dining experience.

This has been a favorite spot for myself and family to meet my father who lives outside of Minden. He visits regularly to meet his friends and stay in touch with the locals. The food is always served up fresh and delicious. The conversation is a big part of it as we all get caught up with who is doing... More
