This is a busy place and no wonder - very extensive breakfast menu and just about something for everyone. Good service, served efficiently by friendly staff and food was pretty good too. Prices quite reasonable. Place to go.

Friendly staff, huge menu with great selections. We were served coffee right away and refilled often. Our food came hot and looked very nice on the plate. I was there the last time iwas in Ottawa and would go back again
