We were in Napanee & walked the river edge with our grand daughter & enjoyed a fine spring late morning. My wife mentioned it was close to lunch time & why not check out John's. A recommendation that came from our oldest son who had been there for the first time weeks earlier. We entered & were told to sit wherever we liked. John came over & greeted us and expressed how cute our 4 yr old grand daughter was. The waitress a young pleasant lady looked after us well throughout. The food was great. All cooked from scratch. Once done we went to pay our bill & John came over & asked our grand daughter to come around behind to work the cash register. He pulled out a chair for her to climb on infront of the register & showed her which buttons to push. Once totalled he called out the amount which was way less than you'd pay anywhere. He mentioned that our grand daughter's lunch was free as she had just worked for him. I didn't think that fair as this guy is making an honest living. But seeing how he displayed such pleasure to the other customers & he enjoyed showing our grand daughter how to work the cash I accepted. Our grand daughter was told by John she can work for him anytime. She now believes she has a job LOL!!! The waitress shared that she came in one day for lunch & he was on his own & things got busy so she jumped to help him. He was impressed with her help he told her to come back anytime & he would pay her. She's now a regular employee. She also mentioned he hasn't raised his prices in 15 yrs. The food is great. Nothing fancy but good old fashioned home cooking. Please visit & enjoy if your in Napanee. You won't be disappointed.
