“Always a favourite”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

I have been coming to Hydro for nearly a decade.
I love that its set in a quiet area next to the river and there is always free parking. Plus there is a place to tie you dog up to as well.

The decor has changed a bit since my last visit. Its a little bit sterile when you go inside which leaves you feeling a bit lost. But I always try and sit outside anyway.

The staff are always polite and attentive and meals come pretty quickly. They are reasonable priced at around $13-19 for a very hearty meal.

My one little bit of critique is for the wait staff. It is bad form to clear the plates from the table when others at the table are still eating from theirs. It sends a message to the dinner that you want them to hurry up and get the hell out of there.
I dont think this is the intent and the staff are merely being efficient...but still it does feel nice.

“Buy your coffee to go and go sit by the river”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

Ordered the hot cakes which were dry and tasteless with a spit of maple spirit and bananas which had been shown the oven for a brief moment. Coffee was good though and on a quiet Saturday morning the service was quick and friendly.

“pleasant”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Lovely setting in summer, great location as it is out of the way. Not much in the way of cabinet food. Our meals were nice enough but I thought a bit over priced for what is was.
