Don't understand why this is rated as moderate to high cost, as it's very reasonably priced. Soups sandwiches and baked goods all made in house. Awesome breakfasts. Lots of selection on menu and with the daily specials. Highly recommended but well known in Owen Sound...More

A nice meal, nothing to rock your world but good portion to the price, friendly service and prompt. Coffee is better than average.
