Lots of choices and always good. We enjoy the full carafe of coffee they leave at your table so you never have to ask for refills. A little pricey for breakfast but a nice treat when you have to do a run into Peterborough. Nice new decor, clean and waitresses are always friendly. They do breakfast well.

This last month, Feb. 2017 it has gone under renovation with the placing of the washroom cubicle dividers placed wrong for wheelchair access. The toilet door should be in line with the space beside the toilet, but the configuration is the same as before renovation for every blockage as before. The wall holding the sinks is in the way right... More

This restaurant is as good as Cora's with more of a comfy homey feeling. Extensive menu that includes a Senior's menu. Recently renovated it is spacious and clean. The wait staff are fast and friendly. We were there on a Sunday and it was extremely busy but worth the wait. I would definitely visit again if in Peterborough.

I really enjoyed my meal last Sunday. The restaurant was about half full when I got there but the place started to fill up shortly after I arrived which I thought was a good sign. I loved the idea of being able to half a good senior size dish. Half a waffle, with blue berries and whipped cream, two strips... More

Have been here a couple of times for breakfast but have discontinued visiting as I find the price far too much for what you get. The food and service is good but when I can get an equivalent meal for my girlfriend and I for literally half the price elsewhere, I can not justify returning.

It's hard to touch the quality of their breakfasts anywhere else in town! From the fresh carafe of coffee placed on your table as you order, to the mouth watering variety of meals heading your way. If you are an Eggs Benedict fan you just found heaven! and Kids are not forgotten, they will enjoy the Smitty's homemade waffles with... More

Staff was great in holding the table for us as another couple were late because of the cancer run in downtown. Once thy arrived than our food orders were taken. Wait staff were more than willing to do separate... More

The restaurant is right downtown across from Holiday Inn, we were seated quickly and the fare was what you would expect from a Smitty's. It was a weekend so no breakfast special, so it was $11-15 for any breakfast, which to me seems pricey. Solid experience but not much of a bargain.
