Seriously all kidding aside, amazing service, food, but just don't think you can walk in and get a table of... More

This is a place you don't want to miss. The food is always great and portions are generous. You won't leave hungry that's for sure, breakfast and lunch are fantastic.

Reliable food options; busy spot because meals are tasty and service is outstanding! The owner remembers your regular order and serves it when you walk in! She even makes your favourite pie for your booked visit!! Just like going home to Mom!

Steak means steak hache. I ordered a combo which had 2ham, 2 sausages, 2 bacon. Price is 7.75, but the taste was just so so. Ham is not good, sausage is even worse.
