Great service, fantastic selection and a really good omelette station. They had a great variety of breakfast items to choose from and you can't beat the view.

“Great place for larger groups!”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

Our family stayed at the Harrison Hot Springs Hotel in early January for 3 nights to celebrate our father's 75th birthday. There were 23 of us in total so the Lakeside Cafe was a perfect place for us to meet as a family for breakfast/brunch and also for one of our dinners! Usually our family is not too keen on buffets , so we were pleasantly surprised at how fresh all the food was and even more importantly, how tasty!! Not one complaint from our big group and we will definitely be coming here again when our family returns to the Hotel!! Thanks for be so accommodating!!

“Lakeside Cafe Buffets”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

I can only talk about our Friday evening dinner and our Saturday and Sunday breakfasts. Dinner was available from 5 PM – 9 PM and was an Italian Buffet. There was a long table with soup and a good selection of salads (leafy and pasta). There as another section with various pasta dishes and sauces. But the best part was the pasta bar where a chef prepared pasta dishes to order. There were at least four different types of base sauce and four different kinds of pasta. There was also at least eight ingredients that you could pick from to add to your sauce. You could pick one or all. Some of the items were Italian sausage, green onions, diced tomatoes, diced red peppers, shrimp, etc.

The breakfast buffet was extensive. All types of fruit, oatmeal, yogurt, whipped cream, pan cakes, scrambled eggs, toast, danishes, croissants , and more. Another table had several different types of juice (grape fruit, apple and orange). Coffee was served at your table by the servers.

Breakfast also had an omelet bar with a chef that would whip up any kind of eggs you wanted or custom omelets. I had one with two eggs, tomatoes, green onions, bacon bits, and cheddar cheese.

Service for all meals was good. It was attentive, friendly and helpful.

“a classic diner experience”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

This place is precisely what a diner should be - simple, reasonably priced, friendly and filling. We had fish and chips, grilled cheese, onion rings and root beer floats. Each was as it should be. My grilled cheese on rye with tomatoes was oozing cheesy goodness and the floats had lots of ice cream.
This is not fine dining, and you know that by looking at it. But if you have a craving for comfort food carbs, this place will make you smile!

Great food selection. Check out Ken - the egg station master. Such a delight to watch him whip up your favorite omelette.
