Have visited The Durham Cafe many times. Great service..busy but never too busy. The food is very good..from all day breakfasts to fish and chips. Daily specials and reasonable prices.

“Great breakfast but not lunch”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

We have been there many times for breakfast. Outstanding.
But we tried lunch and disappointed.
Long wait for food. Cole slaw not to our liking. Very bitter.
Fries seemed crisp at first but limp soon.

Breakfast great but would not go back for any other meal.

“Thank You Durham Cafe !”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

I have been to the Durham Café close to 100 times.
I have taken dozens of friends and they all are now regulars.
The food is second no other restaurant in Lindsay and probably Peterborough and Oshawa too.
Yes sometimes it's crowded but what does that tell you?
It tells you people really LIKE it there and they will give up a bit of room for the sake of a good serving of great food.
Another thing, the people of Lindsay are friendly and personable and you should enjoy their company. Families are there with kids. That's life. Kids can be noisy but they can be pretty damn cute too. This place is Canadian hospitality at it's best.
If you have not been there, do yourself a massive favor and get down there for a meal.

“Great Value, Great Service”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

This is a good bet for home-cooking style family meals. Our group of 9 had breakfast at the Durham, located 4 block off the main street. Coffee was instantaneous and tasty, meal portions were large well cooked and arrived hot for all of our large group.
