You have to know about this place or you could miss it. You also have to be a member and have a key to get in unless it is not too busy then someone will let you in. We had no problem. They are very friendly, too. The food was very good. The specials are the way to go. You sit at a big counter, too. Nice view of the river.

This is an out of the way place that, if we were not with friends who had been there, we would not have known it existed. There are things to know before going. You need to be let into the building. We put our name on a waiting list to get an electronic key - $20. Once in it is an experience. It is counter seating and it gets busy so be ready. They have endless coffee which you get from urns. The breakfasts are excellent. I had biscuits and gravy and my wife had eggs. One of our friends had an omelet. Everyone enjoyed their meals immensely. Good food, pleasant service, unique experience. A must visit - if you can find it.

Worth walking around aimlessly trying to find...we had a great breakfast and the staff went above and beyond. Birthday Sing along with cindy (the dog )was a bonus! Oh, and the all the homemade bread is delicious!

We had difficulty finding this place despite GPS. Some locals gave us final directions. When we tried the door, shortly after we had seen two men enter, it was locked. A gentleman opened and invited us in when we told him we were looking for Fred’s.

Turns out it is a key club.

A large C shaped counter with the kitchen in the centre is reminiscent of an old fashioned diner.

Coffee is serve yourself.

Daily specials are exactly that.

Service was friendly and efficient.

Don’t miss this place if you are in the area.

Fred’s started as a breakfast club but I haven’t had to use my key in ages. Someone will always open the door and now they serve lunch. It has a local flavor and there are no tables just a wrap around bar. You serve yourself coffee and you will be seated by staff. There can be an hour long wait it gets so crowded. The food is fresh and the breads are homemade. Service is quick and friendly and the orders come out hot and fast. Omelettes, eggs any way, hash browns, corned beef hash, cereal, yogurts and specials of the day and week are all good. So check your cholesterol and enjoy a hearty breakfast at Fred’s.
