Milkshakes were out-of-this-world; food was a little disappointing.
Service was very good; very kid-friendly.
Great family place, and for casual dining. Great atmosphere.
Love the signboards and the cosy bar area.

Had a delicious dinner- burgers and fries, salad on the side.
Old fashioned restaurant with a great atmosphere, the service was excellent. Would go back!!

I bet if you ate here every day you'd probably lose a couple of decades of your life. But, if you're craving this kind of thing: traditional "American" diner food, burgers, greasy fries, heavy malts - then this is the place to be. Occasionally, even a picky eater enjoys a greasy, meaty burger! All the servers are very overweight for some reason. I don't know if this is a coincidence or if it's some kind of theme like at the infamous Heart Attack Grill. If you're on a diet, STEER CLEAR!!!

My daughters and I were looking for someplace open late after a camp to grab something to eat other than fast food. This place is perfect. Breakfast served all day and regular lunch and dinner entrees that tasted homemade. Great prices for the area. Service was mostly excellent.

So I ate at the Creamery on a number of occasions during my stay at The Cardinal Hotel. I chose to eat there in preference to the Hotel's associated bistro for breakfast because of the menu range. The atmosphere is amazing - upbeat and as a number of reviews have noted, everyone working there is so happy to be there. The pace is brisk and the portions are plentiful. I had two breakfast specials and the Eggs Benedict really was a great way to start the day. It is difficult to find fault - I love diners like this, particularly if on business by myself. Sitting at the counter you are cared for and should you choose, can become freely part of the conversations! The managers provided exceptional customer service and it felt like a large family working together. The food arrived quickly and at breakfast the service includes bottomless coffee. There is an amazing transparency to the food with the patisserie / bakery displaying tempting pies. Portions are ample. I think I had the best milkshake ever here - it seemed like an endless bucket of joy. An amazing American Diner but a respectfully great place to have dinner.
