We stopped here for breakfast early this morning. The food and service was great and we loved the décor. We had poached eggs with Canadian Bacon, fried potatoes and rye bread and great coffee to top it off. The staff was very friendly and we were able to enjoy a relaxing meal while waiting for the sun to come up,... More

My only problem ....I ordered too much, but problem solved, I simply didn't finish it all. We both ordered the Big Breakfast, only because somehow I missed the smaller version somewhere on the menu. I don't normally eat Canadian bacon....but thought I'd give it a go. Excellent, well cooked. Both orders were cooked to perfection and the toast was thick... More

Went to Johns and had their Rocket Salad with pita chips. You received a lot of food for the money. Fresh ingredients. Definitely would suggest this salad but I do recommend go hungry.

I don't write negative reviews generally but I've tried to eat at johns in sarnia multiple times because it's cheap and close to the travel hotels... The place is fine service is good but the food is not.. Aside from the breakfast which is very busy I wouldn't recommend having lunch or dinner there, fine if you want cheap food... More

We love Johns. We eat here quite often. His cabbage rolls are the best. Too bad you can only get them on Fridays. His staff is friendly and professional. Great place!

I took the family to John's restaurant on what the locals call the Golden Mile. The restaurant gave me the impression of a truck stop. Maybe it is, because like most truck stops I've been to the food is excellent and there is plenty of it. John's caters to many kinds of taste buds and there all day breakfast menu... More
