I was with 5 other guys and we stopped her for breakfast on our way home from Manitoulin island.
We had the breakfast special which was very good and it was served quite quickly considering it is just Earl cooking.
Earl came out of the kitchen to talk to us since it wasn't very busy.
They have a bottomless cup of coffee.
I would recommend Carol and Earls to anyone traveling to Manitoulin Island.

Great homemade food and plenty of it! The fresh fish and chips are awesome!

We stayed in South Baymouth for a week, and this restaurant became our favourite. On the highway out of town, it seems to attract fewer tourists and their prices reflect this. The decor is pretty stale and it became slightly comical after the first visit, but you can be assured what lacks in the appearance, is made up for in the food. There is even a working juke box jammed with classic oldies.

The owners, Carol & Earl are there everyday in the kitchen, and it's not uncommon for them to come out and say hello. They pride themselves on homemade burgers & sausages, real chicken & turkey (versus deli) in their sandwiches and large servings.

Their fish & chips is the best we had on the island. Perch, lightly battered with a heaping plate of fries. It comes with a salad, soup or juice and the soup is a meal in itself (also homemade). Their breakfast is the best value in town - 4.95! And unlimited coffee. To top off your meal, there is a wide selection of homemade desserts.

The waitresses that served us were friends and family that came up to the island in the summer to help and they were super friendly and efficient.
