“Delicious breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Enjoyed a very very tasty breakfast here in this semi 50s style cafe. Located in the basement of the James Bay Inn it was very convenient. Staff very good and professional. Best breakfast burrito I've probably ever had - incredible crispy bacon, chorizo, fried peppers and onions, cheese -- very well done.

“Best Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Based on a recent review here, I took myself down to James Bay Inn for breakfast and was not disappointed. Just a few short blocks behind the Parliament Building (if you're an out of towner like me, it's nice checking out the residential quarter) and I was there.

I ordered the Lumberjack breakfast and whilst I couldn't quite manage it all, it was delicious with really quick service.

“Good place for Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Because we stayed in a hotel that didn't include breakfast, we got breakfast at James Bay, just a short walk from the waterfront hotels. Good, hearty breakfast: if you want oatmeal, ask for the "porridge"--it was delicious and filling. Others in my group had eggs and such, and were happy with their selections. Friendly staff.

“Fantastic pub fare!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Yeah, it's 70's pub carpet and a little worn around the edges, but with such great food ( MMMM chowder and yam fries) and friendly servers, who would notice the decor?
