“Hasn't changed”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We first stopped at the Owl back in the 70s and have visited every few years since. The one thing you can say is that it has been consistent. Food is pretty average diner with fairly good breakfast and lunch items. One item really disappointed and that was the biscuits & gravy. good sausage gravy, but a very heavy dense biscuit that turned to paste as it broke up.

“Nice Old Time Diner”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

My parents live in Cloverdale. We had never stopped here. It was a good place to eat. Good service and food. Most of the patrons were seniors. Not sure if that's good or bad. We had fish and chips. Good choice. We will go back next time we are visiting.

“Too bad”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Too bad this place doesn't live up to it's long time presence in Cloverdale. Only had breakfast here so can only write about it's quality. VERY average, eggs, potatoes and bacon. As usual with most cafes, toast made with typical "Smart and Final" whimpy bread... with coffee 10.00 plus tip. That would be OK if the food was good.
