“Not what it once was”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

We used to go to David's after seeing a show at A.C.T., oh so many years ago. I'm happy to see that David's is still in business, but it's not what it once was...such an iconic spot, so delicious...now ...?

“Just Okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

This was convenient to our hotel. The service was fine, the food just okay. Family of 4 had breakfast there. I ordered the potato pancakes which were just okay.

“Awful food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

Went for breakfast here yesterday morning with my husband.. We both ordered pancakes... They could have been bounced off the wall! They were tasteless & rubbery. Our waiter seemed to be on his own & was running around the place & not very attentive. Worst part was when we got the bill they had included a $4 tip as the final price. I know tipping is something you do over here but we thought that was cheeky. Won't be returning!

typical diner food. good enough, but not great. good portion sizes and prices are relatively on par with the neighborhood and for what you get.
