“Crowded place but not crowded plates”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We were pleased to get a table on a busy Sunday morning, however, there may be a reason that this place wasn't as busy as other breakfast all-day joints. Table placement may be the real issue behind the overcrowded feel of this place. However, tight spaces may be the least of their problems. Pancakes were huge and looked great, but were overcooked and a little cold. Had the Molly which seemed to be the "big" breakfast. This wasn't the case though...nothing big and hearty about this breakfast. The eggs were overcooked and scrambled, but scrambled into dry crispy bits and so were the few little bits of homefries that were sprinkled on the edge of plate. Sausages were tasty, but were dry and overcooked and I could have went without the hair on the edge of the plate hidden under the toast. Needless to say we were unimpressed and I passed on the toast, however, we were hungry and just wanted to have a hearty breakfast and hit the road. Well...we hit the road...a little hungry!

Bruno might want to take his arrogant glamour shot off the back of the menu and declutter this place. Customers shouldn't be squeezed onto a table that is clearly meant to be used as 4 per side not 2 by 2....and if customers have to climb over staff backpacks and jackets on their way to the washroom, you may want to rethink the configuration of the restaurant. Again though this may be the least of their worries. Each of our breakfasts left a lot to be desired.

“YUCK”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

The waitress was disinterested, the food was lackluster, the hollendaise was awful, the crepes were thin and nonexistant, sausage was deep fried....YUCK
I went to Burger King immediately after. I should have sent them the bill.

“Not Impressed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

I received 2 blueberry pancakes and a Choc. Banana crepe. The Crepes tasted decent. The pancakes were overcooked and I needed a knife to cut them almost like a steak. The waitress I got didn't give us utensils until after we got our food and then asked for utensils. I am not one to complain. They sent out the food. They knew the food wasn't up to standards. I won't be going back again! The Sault needs a change in food in my opinion. Quality isn't there anymore!

“Very disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

We were regulars in the restaurant that these owners used to operate, and expected that by branching out on their own, things would somehow be better. WRONG! Its worse, and that's not saying much about the other place. Bruno is arrogant and ignores the complaints people are having. The waitresses were all snotty 19-22 year olds who could have cared less. 4 tables all around us complained about their food, 1 walked out. We paid the $4.50 for breakfast which was garbage, cold, store bought homefries and burnt toast. Shameful really, its got a great location but the steamy bean was much better!

“Going Downhill Fast”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

My wife and I had breakfast here for the fifth time in in the last six weeks. This was probably our last time. It seems that each time the food quality goes down another notch. Now scrambled eggs are not scrambled, they may or may not be swimming in oil. The potatoes have changed and are now a poor quality " Home Fries" . The toast ranges from burnt black to barely toasted. The " canned fruit" that people are complaining about has been replaced by some orange sections and a strawberry. The preserves ( jam, honey) appear to be the cheapest that they could find.. The manager ( owner????) walks around chatting up the diners completely oblivious to the lack of consistency in the quality of food being served. Today there were 4 tables where the toast was black. It seems to have the potential to be a good business but I fear it will fail due to poor management and deteriorating food quality.
