“Great Quality and Value Breakfast on Queen St.”
Review of Hi-Lite Restaurant

Hi-Lite Restaurant

This is an authentic old diner not a retro diner. It comes with all the classics...clean, great service, food, and value, and an old Seeburg Jukebox plus wall boxes!
Pancakes are nice and fluffy, bacon perfectly done, eggs served up anyway you like, and rye toast fresh with a hint of caraway. Coffee is a lighter diner blend and had a hint of nut meg I think that filled it out.Would love to see real maple syrup on the menu and would gladly pay extra for it.
If you're a visitor, there's no need to endure the poor quality pricey breakfasts of the tourist areas when this is so close by (5 min by car, WeGo stop, 5 minute walk from the White Water Walk) . It closes at 5pm. A real 'Hi-Lite'!

Great place for breakfast right near the Falls. We also stayed in a GREAT Airbnb right upstairs. Really great area, great place for breakfast. Can't say enough!

Found myself with a hour to spare and stopped in here for a quick early supper. Didn't expect much being a local diner, but boy was I surprised! Great diner food (extraordinary gravy) with some excellent coffee was exactly what I needed on a cold day. Burger was cooked perfectly and so delicious!!! These people do diner fare right!

Staff was awesome too. Genuinely friendly and attentive. I'd had such a stressful afternoon and Hi-Lite made all that stress melt away.

Quick tip for those who haven't been; it's a cash only joint. Don't let that stop you though. There's a CIBC atm right next door if you're out of the foldin' stuff.

The Hi-Lite is great at breakfast and dinner because its all they do! Try the Old-timers breakfast for like $4.99, this diner isn't decorated to look like an old 60-70s diner it actually is one!!

Only been here for breakfast, but food is very good. Nice size portions as well. Very reasonably priced.
