Recently went to this resturant and ordered the appetizer platter, as well as a large salad. The appetizer platter had fries that were not fully cooked, after asking for a new batch they just heated up the same ones and brought them back out. The fries had a frost bite taste to them, and the ketchup was acidic tasting like they kept adding ketchup into the bottle without cleaning them out and in the end we didn't eat any of them. The salad was a bit of lettuce with a tomato and couple slices of pepper on it, and their version of a large was about a cup in size. Server was rude, unapologetic and it was one of the few times in my entire life I haven't left any tip. Afterwards we went to the McDonald's around the corner on Bank Street were the fries were fresh and the service was great.

My family of four recently ate here every morning ! It was the right price for breakfast and we were so full we skipped lunch. With the museums opening at 10 am we were in and out in no time! Our server was quick and polite and seemed to run the whole place ! Very budget minded families will love this place as it is so convent to parliament .

I ordered pancakes and they arrived and tasted all gritty. There was no flavour and they had little flecks of something black all over them. The home fries werent much better. I paid almost $13 for breakfast and left hungry because the food was so inedible.

We were looking for an affordable breakfast place on a Sunday morning and stumbled upon this place while walking down Sparks Street. While this is nothing glamorous, the staff was very efficient and the food was exactly what you would expect for the prices (after two large breakfasts, coffee and juice and a tip, our total bill came to $20). The food was simple - eggs, toast and home fries and very, very filling. Highly recommend!

while walking on Sparks street. i noticed the breakfast special sign and decided to go with the family for breakfast. The service was OK but our server was not the most friendly. The breakfast was average but cheap for Ottawa which was a plus. The kitchen forgot half of my wife's toast and heard other patrons complain there orders were wrong or missing items such as pancakes. The server said only one free coffee refill but reluctantly gave me a second refill.
