We happened to stumble across this and are so glad we did! The kids menu was well priced with a huge selection of things for them. My husband said his roast beef sandwich was the best he ever had! My pancakes were also delicious. The staff were friendly and it was a really clean restaurant with free wifi to keep... More

We went here on Canada day weekend with our 2 young kids. The service was very prompt, drink refills were fast and food came out fast as well. I ordered the chicken and spinach dish which was made to order and good, my husband ordered the hot turkey sandwich and once he received extra gravy he enjoyed it and our... More

While the food was good, the service was terrible. After bringing our food, our server never came back to see if we needed anything. There was three staff standing by the register so I got up to ask one of them to bring more coffee to the table. Water and soda glasses sat empty. When our waitress finally returned it... More

This is a family friendly restaurant with great food and service. Their menu is very versatile creating tantalizing well presented creations using eggs, bacon, peppers, onions, toast, pancakes, hash browns, and more, as well as juice, coffee and tea. We visited this place a couple of times during our visit to this area and would return many times more!

So it's dinner time and you are craving steak, but the kids aren't interested in a steak house because they want what they want. So dad caves in and we head to Smitty's. Our drink orders came quick, our meal orders were take quick and our meals arrived quick. So far so good. But how was dad's steak. Let me... More

Its been over a year since we were there for breakfast. After looking at the seniors menu I was surprized at how much it costs. One egg, toast, and bacon was over $11:00. Then cost of coffee on top of that. My wife's meal cost a little more. The bill was just over $35:00. Then on the debit card they... More

For the past ten years that I have lived here, this has been my go-to restaurant, whether for a quick coffee and snack or for a meal with visitors. Food chosen from the varied menu (breakfast all day) is perfectly cooked, attractively presented, and served by a pleasant, helpful, informed waitstaff.

The rug at the entrance wasnt flat and I noticed two others trip on it. You will notice lots of seniors compared to families with children here. Coffee and breakfast can be expensive depending what you choose to order. They often have a breakfast special posted on a wall behind the cash desk. Be sure to check out the special... More

Great place to go for friendly quick service and good food. We visit mainly for Sunday breakfast because if you want to eat healthy they accommodate requests but the classics are always good too. We have never been disappointed!
