Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is a long established funky fun restaurant. It is a favourite stop of locals and visitors. This is a handy place to stop for lunch. The food is classic burgers and sandwiches. It is all good. The service is both friendly and prompt. Your coffee cup does not see bottom. A definite on the list of places to stop.

this place is a holdover of the seventies, and I'm so glad it's still there. Quality meals at moderate prices. Meals from scratch. Best butter tart I've ever had

Never had a bad meal there. Great staff and consistently great food, at very reasonable prices. The fries are fresh cut and damn good. Sometimes if you go during peak lunch time, you may have to wait...but there really isn't anywhere to wait.

My Wife and I have made this our go to breakfast or lunch place. The service is always quick and friendly and the food is always good. From Clubhouses to Burgers to traditional breakfasts to soup we have never had any complaints. Nice little cafe ambiance and a good location, if you are in Duncan, make sure you come here.
