Any restaurant that bakes their own bread is a winner in my book. Chef Big Ds club sandwich. It's Diners Drive inns and Dives moment! !

Our daughter recommended this spot for breakfast, and it was great. Lots of choices, from standard brekkies (eggs, bacon, ham, sausages, hash browns, pancakes, toast - white, whole wheat, multigrain, etc.) to vegetarian choices, wraps and a kids menu (nicely open to kids of all ages). A selection of fruit slices seemed to be included with most options, which was... More

This is a very popular eatery, so it can be busy, but it is worth the wait. The food portions are plentiful, well presented and tasty. We ordered from their breakfast items this trip, but have also had things from their lunch menu and it was just as good.

Went with my son after reading the reviews. We were surprised by the generous portion sizes. The chorizo omelette was big enough for 2 people and so full of chorizo. Absolutely delicious. We left full and completely satisfied. Good value and fresh food. Would definitely go back.

We arrived at 2.55 and they let us eat even though the kitchen was closing at 3. I had a BLT and liked that I could choose my bread type. Meals were delicious and very filling with choices of fries, Caesar salad or garden salad.

Place seems to have become a victim of its own success. It is always busy on the weekends but service is extremely slow and the majority of the servers seem to have a 'couldn't care less' attitude. We have been 3 times in the last two months and this past Sunday was our last time. Food is ok, not great.... More

We were here during a busy lunch time so the service was pretty slow. But I had a delicious bacon, avocado and Swiss grilled cheese and the fries were fresh cut, hot and crunchy.

Great place for breakfast. Hip and reasonably priced. Fast or slow to stay as long as you want. Nice portions.

What a great place to get in a mega amount of calories before heading off for a day of hiking! The general decor is typical diner but the service and food are great. Definitely a local hang out and once you go you will know why.

I travelled through Squamish a few weeks ago, so I don't remember the details of this restaurant. However, I do remember the service from multiple staff was particularly nice - real people who asked questions and didn't just quote a script. I recall the food was also pretty yummy, and everyone in my family powered through lunch with gusto.
