This is the best breakfast joint in town. I moved to St Thomas 2 years ago from where I had lived in downtown Toronto. Living in downtown Toronto afforded me a wide variety of fantastic breakfast options. I was worried I would be disappointed with my options in a small town. Not so... Thanks to Pams. I sometimes order from... More

I visited twice in a week. Once alone on a week day. Food was good. I just seem to care about service. I drink my coffee pretty fast waiting for my food. My particular waitress would just stroll by not ask I needed coffee or notice my cup place out and away from me. I asked for more coffee but... More

We stopped here recently with my daughters hockey team while in town for a tournament. They accommodated approx 25 of us even though it was a busy Sat morning. While I did not have the buffet there was plenty of choice and it looked very good. Many of the people in our party did have the buffet and really enjoyed... More

While the food we had was pretty yummy that's about the only good thing I can say about our experience. Went with our 6, 4 and 1 year old for breakfast. Felt $6.99 was far too much to pay for my kids meals for the buffet. They would never eat that much so got them a meal off the menu.... More

I'm 21. I've been going here for well over 5 years with my mom and family. Hands down the best place around to get breakfast. Their shoe string Hash browns are my favorite. Great staff, clean place, fast delicious food at a good price and a variety of items to choose from. Lunch is great too. Usually busy after church... More

We went for the breakfast buffet and it was awesome. It was delicious, tons of stuff on the buffet and really good breakfast potatoes... not deep fries hard little potato pieces that have probably been sitting there all day, like most breakfast buffets. I just found it a tiny bit expensive at $11 per person... it was almost $20 with... More
