We enjoyed a hearty bacon and eggs breakfast. The bacon was cut thick, and not greasy. Poached eggs were prepared perfectly. Exactly what we wanted to start off the day. The bread (toast) was a wonderful surprise as it had flavour and clearly not store bought. Delicious. Unfortunately, there seemed to be only one cook and one waitress so it... More

If you're looking for huge servings and great sandwiches- this is the place to go. I usually share a Paul Bunyan Sandwich with my boyfriend for lunch. It's gut bursting good, and keeps us full past dinner into the next day.

Friends recommended that we go there for breakfast. They said it was great. We went on a Saturday. Ordered off the menu. Service was slow and meal was cold. Place was not that busy when we were there. Depressing.

We stopped in on a cross - Canada tour. I'm always worried about being able to eat gluten free on the road. This little place had a red seal chef! It looks like just a little hole in the wall but it is popular with locals, has huge portions and they know how to do gluten free. Everyone left with... More

Okay, so seriously. We were recommended to go here by a friend. It's in a funny location, with a funny name. I was concerned walking in. But the food was AMAZING. Everything was fresh and hand made (so you wait for a few extra minutes). The wait staff was wonderful and kind. We really enjoyed it here. A hidden gem!

We were driving around Swift Current looking for some place to eat when we happened upon this little dinner. It is homemade food that is tasty and the service was ok. The portions are large. They have a good variety on the menu along with some unique items. Would likely stop here again if we find ourselves in Swift Current... More

The food is fantastic and the portions are huge. Sometimes I think that may be a bit wasteful but that's an odd complaint! I've tried this place a few times when traveling through for work and I have always had a great experience and the staff are so friendly. It's a bit difficult to find if you're not from Swift...
