“All you can eat...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Wow, if you are with a large group/family this is an ideal place to drop by for brunch, the variety offered is far greater than the others and the price is reasonable, remember the catch is you pay for your coffee and other drinks.....

“stay away”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Cold and crappy breakast buffet , dont waste your money, it was cheap at $6.99 each but I would rather have gone elsewear. We complained to the waitress and she went to the manager more than once but he refused to come to our table every time , to me that says he knows its cold and crappy but doesnt care to address the problem

“Tourist Trap - Deplorable - Awful- DONT GO”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

if you wanna pay $4.00 for a coffee or watered down juice that comes in an 8oz cup that isn't refillable this is the place to go. If you want to get sick and get terrible service, terrible food this is the place. absolutely awful only reason they are in business still because its sucks in tourist looking for a cheap deal. Please go to Tim Horton or McDonald you will save money and get better food. WORST EVER

“Great breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

We decided to try this place given it's proximity to our hotel. It was a 5 minute walk, plus the breakfast buffet was open till 2pm, which was ideal for us since we're not early risers! The servers were lovely, very friendly and helpful, often coming back to check on us and asking to refill our coffee and tea. They explained from the beginning that drinks are not included in the buffet price, which I appreciated, as that would've been a rude shock on the bill. The buffet was not extremely varied, but at a price of $6.99, you can't expect a 5 star meal. Overall, the food was of good quality. Omelettes were yummy, as were the potatoes and tater tots. Waffles were crispy which was great. The pancakes looked very fluffy but unfortunately I found them to be a bit gummy, which was a letdown. Also, I would've expected fresh fruit, instead of the canned fruit cocktail which was provided. However, the food was hot and fresh, and regularly refilled. We enjoyed it so much that we returned the next morning. The place as packed, which is always a good sign. Do try their french vanilla coffee, it's fantastic! Even though it's a bit pricey, it was delicious and foamy. The pancakes were better the second time round, and our server from the first day even came over to tell us she'd recognised us and it was nice to see us again, and she wished us happy hoildays, which I thought was lovely of her as I wouldn't expect them to remember faces so easily! It shows they have very nice wait staff. Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves. Nice and cheerful, with lots of sunny windows and good hot food. We'll be back!

“Bait and switch!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

6.99 for breakfast is the bait...drinks are not included. They do not offer free water, only bottled water. 4$ for ice tea or lemonaid 3$ for coffee...no spleanda,only sweet n low. Brings your bill to 11$ or 10$ for kids. Did I mention the food is awful,,,,really awful and I had low expectations for a 6.99 breakfast but it was so BAD.
