My husband and I had a hamburger with fries. My husband was able to eat all of his but I left half of the fries there was so many. Service was quick and staff was friendly.

This is a great little hole in the wall that we stumbled upon. My husband and I love to go there for breakfast. The Johnny's Special, great price and includes unlimited coffee. It's a favorite for many of the locals to go and just sip coffee and chat. They offer breakfast on the menu all day. Johnny is always on... More

$3.99 for two eggs, two sausages, toast and what they call homefries. Price is okay but the food is not. Some people may like sausages cooked in a deep fryer with a leathery skin and mushy inside. Others may like scrambled eggs that seemed to have been diced into a million little pieces so you'd be better off eating them... More

Grabbed a take out breakfast for 5. Not only were they very friendly but suggested we go to the convenience store next door for our drinks because they would be cheaper. Food was ready quickly. The portions were huge and delicious. Servers made us feel at home during our short wait almost as if we were family.

I go there once and a while for breakfast. Very filling meals and bottomless good coffee.Usually go as couples and staff are very attentive. Just wish there was not an additional fee to have the eggs poached.

This is a popular place for breakfasts and lunches. There is parking and the staff is polite and efficient. Portions are ample but the menu is limited. The food was tasty and there was limitless coffee.

A very good restaurant for an economical meal. We had the basic standard Canadian breakfast which was well cooked to our wishes and served by very friendly staff. It was nice to be served fritters instead or hash browns or home fries. We will be back.

I took my kids here just to try a new place. My kids loved the food. The pancakes were enormous. It looks like a dive from the outside but it has a decent diner atmosphere. I'd come back.
