As a child, I went here with my mom and sisters. It hasn't changed and that's a good thing! Lovely little spot with great food!

This is my favorite place to grab breakfast down town. My parents went here regularly as kids and now I go any chance I get. Amazing staff of super friendly ladies who are super humanly fast when it comes to service. Their grill cooks are real pros and you get the breakfast you want every time in record time. I... More

This has to be one of the oldest restaurants in Sydney and by far one of the top as it relates to food quality/quantity on your plate. I have been eating at "Kay's" for over 60 years and have never had a bad experience. If you are expecting a posh atmosphere and fancy names on your food this is not... More

We sat at a booth and the varnish was so cracked and heaved nothing sat properly on the table. I took forever for the girl to even acknowledge us as she gabbed about her weekend with other staff. Homemade turkey soup, mmm NOT! THERE WERE QUESTIONSBLE BUBBLES in my soup and a distinct tart smell, my son was sure it... More

A nice little diner nestled of Townsend street, the breakfast are reasonably price with a great cup of coffee with friendly service. All homemade food. We ate lunch here and found the price pretty high for a poutine, hamburger, and pop was almost $20 that to me is expensive.

Its just a hole in the wall cafe with a small limited menu but its quaint, charming and the food is pretty darn good for Breakfast. We went and the place was packed with the locals. The staff were charming and attentive. If you want a decent breakfast with a little bit of old town charm, check this place out.... More

I heard about Kay's Kozy Korner from my son's friends, Riley, Johnny and Ethan and they said to make sure I came here for breakfast. I found this place warm, casual, inviting, friendly staff, talkative, enjoyable, and the regulars love talking to tourists. I had Kay's Big Breakfast and was delighted to have finally found a place that cooked breakfast... More

The locals love this place. Me? Not so much. Bland, uninteresting menu hasn't changed in years ( maybe decades), the decor as well. OK, that's why the locals like it! If fried food is your thing, you've hit the mother load.If you are looking for a place to eat where the friendly waitresses know everyone by name... this is your... More
