I went for lunch with a friend, it was our first visit. When we arrived at 11:15, there were at least 30 people waiting!!! This seems to be a very popular restaurant for breakfast or brunch. We waited 30 minutes and we were seated in a booth, near a window. Within minutes, we were able to order wine for me... More

On a busy Saturday morning the waitress was very attentive. Even telling us there was no rush to leave once we had paid the bill (despite the long line of customers). Many of the options looked like a LOT of food; I ended up splitting "the everything smasher" along with a side of pancakes with a another person. The food... More

I have been to this location many times. My father-in-law used to love this place for breakfast. The menu has a lot of variety. Service is very good. When you come in at the front door you are greeted by a hostess who is very charming. This is a very busy restaurant. The staff do their job well. I do... More

We had a wonderful family brunch at Perkins in Ottawa. Our server was friendly and fast and the food arrived very quickly and was piping hot! We all had a different variation of breakfast and everyone enjoyed their meal. We liked that they left a carafe of coffee at our table so we had refills whenever we needed them. A... More

After a long day we found ourselves looking for somewhere for dinner. We took a chance on Perkins. We had never been before. What an absolute delight! The service, atmosphere and food were perfect! Salad, Turkey dinner and burgers are highly recommended!

Great staff. The omelets are my favorites and the kids loved their pancakes. This place is my #1 choice on Sunday morning. Make sure you wake up early to avoid lineups

We were headed to a ball game and wanted something simple, cheap and fairly fast for dinner. Perkins fit all three and the food was good!. The menu is so extensive it is almost overwhelming. All of us ended up getting breakfast items. The over 50 menu is perfect for someone with a lighter appetite but wants to try everything... More

Ordinarily I wouldn't bother to mention going to Perkins, but they have always offered consistent service and food. The prices are OK. The best part is that when my sister and I go there, we sit through a couple of pots of coffee while we are catching up, and the staff never hurry us (a more European approach to dining... More

So my friend took me to "the best breakfast place in Ottawa", and I prepared my camera for the eggs Benedict to arrive. It was burnt muffins with two sunny side up eggs and a wallop of hollandaise on top. Next to it were also undercooked and charred hash brown potatoes splattered like spaghetti on my plate. I don't understand... More
