Excellent breakfast at the Jamaican Kitchen. Will definitely return to try another dish. Happy atmosphere with wonderful traditional music playing in the background. Highly recommend this terrific family restaurant.

Wanted to have an eggy brunch but ended up here and we’re glad when we saw the jerk chicken lunch special. We both ordered this dish and we were amazed at the portion size for the price. The slow cooked jerk chicken was so flavourful...and the rice and beans side was amazing. No wonder the restaurant was full with people waiting at the door. Great service and happy busy staff were very pleasant to all customers. A joy to visit. We will return for sure. Even had some leftover to take home and enjoy later.More

Never disappointed, amazing flavors and great service on a busy Sunday Bruch. Really great coffee and the Johnny cakes were a treat. I haven’t been to Jamaica yet but I imagine these flavors are spot on.

What a treasure we found in JK!! Great and friendly efficient staff in a beautiful “garden” like patio!! The special flower boxes were so nice along with the background music made us feel like we were away on holidays! The food was awesome, Jamaican Sunrise...and omelet!! Even the washrooms were bright and very clean!!More

The worst experience ever! We waited for about 45 minute just for a Benedict!!! And when we saw they have lots of delivery, we follow up on our food, they said at least we should wait for another 15 minute as they have lots of...online orders and if they don't prepare the food witinn 30 minutes, the Skip the Dishes company charge them!!! Are you kidding! Please let your customers know before taking one hour of their time!!! I'm surprised with their high rate reviews! Worst customer service! When we told them we're leaving they told us that besides our high online orders, our chef cut his hand! If your chef cut his hand, how come he can prepare the online orders but not for the customers that seating there. In general, very impolite team and lack of management and responsibilities. It's shame that you're not respecting your customers that are seating there and just taking care of your online orders as your waitress told us!!!More

Never thought to come here for breakfast But after being in the area glad I reviewed it on tripadvisor and gave it a try. Got the Jamaican style Benny with lightly spicy Jamaican pulled pork on Johnny cakes. Wasn’t too keen on spinach but didn’t...really notice it amongst the pork, egg, pork and hollandaise. Omelette was also good. Coffee was adequate. Food was excellent, however, service was just adequate. Obviously the young teenage server lacked experience and friendliness; the water for the tea was lukewarm, there was no quality check, and when cashing out I was just told the total without being shown the bill. I plan on returning, and am hoping I can give 5 stars next time.More

We had the Jamaican omelette and the Jamaican eggs Benedict, and it was like that scene in What About Bob, where we couldn't stop saying "mmmmmm!". Best food on our western Canada trip!

Amazing food in a chill environment. I tried the pea soup with jerk pork, the jerk wings and the Jamaican patty! Awesome sample platter . Definitely worth checking out
