We have enjoyed the ABC restaurant on Burnside Road many times and never had a problem. This is a good family restaurant and thankfully kids (usually not to many) are placed in separate area. The staff are efficient and work hard to make the customer experience good. The place is clean and generally quite busy. They have a new menu which is more difficult to use but ok. Some parts of the restaurant can be too cold because of blowing air so if this is a concern ask to sit in a warmer area.

When my friend suggested the ABC I felt a bit of a 'groan' come over me. Not a 'family' (read: cheapo) restaurant where everything is microwaved out of a can! Noooooo!

I was pleasantly surprised. There was ample parking, the restaurant was clean and basic. The service was efficient, but as my colleges and I lingered over a business breakfast, I couldn't really say how long things took. We were there for three hours, had our coffee cups continuously refilled and were not asked to move along.

I ordered an omelette which came with pan fried potatoes and toast. The food was very tasty, delivered to the table hot and the waitress was extremely pleasant.

If you are looking for basic breakfast fare, you can't go wrong here. Clean and bright, with good food in a pleasant and clean surrounding.

We were seated right away (first booth closest to the front counter/door) by our server who took our drink order right away but it was all downhill from there.

Drinks arrived quickly enough but our food order was not a priority. We sat with our menus closed (unspoken sign someone is ready to order) for quite some time while watching our server (Pam?) walk past several times seating other guests and saying "just a minute"...she even bussed another table while we waited and watched! She finally took our order and the booth directly behind right after us.

We waited for at least a half hour and watched the booth that ordered after us get their food first. We didn't order anything extraordinary, just eggs Benedict. When the food arrived, the plate was warm, but food cold. We ate anyway as we'd already waited some time.

We were staying at a local inn that offers a 10% discount at ABC if you showed a client card and once our dishes were cleared (we had not asked for our bill yet) we placed it on the table. When she next came to the table with our bill and saw the paper, without a word walked right past in an obvious huff crumpling the bill she had already printed and snatched the card off the table.

We can only be led to believe that we had somehow offended her from the get-go because her attitude and lack of courteous customer service made that apparent (although we do not know what it was that we did) or she was having an exceptionally bad day. It was only 9 am. As a former server, we did not leave a tip as this was one of the worst service experiences I have ever had and it takes a lot for me to not leave one.

We were one of three or four other tables. Inattentive service, wrong order and cold eggs benny. Had a 10% discpunt from Accent Inn but still felt expensive for the food and poor service. Not impressed.
