We were seated pretty quickly and the service was friendly and responsive. The food was good, decent portions and included coffee. The only downside really is that it is a little pricey. 2 adults and 2 kids for breakfast was > $50

Not impressed! Not very busy and service took forever to even get a coffee! Prices are hefty and not impressed with final result. I have been to better places for less. Wellington Diner rocks!
