We had heard John's place was not to be missed while visiting Victoria. Our breakfast was the best cooked breakfast we have had in a very long time. Service was also excellent and what you got for your money was top notch. Cannot wait to...visit again and try some of his other meals.More

Thank you, we appreciate that. Please be safe. See you again.
Went on a weekday, later in the morning and there was no real line to get in, just a few minutes wait. Service is fast and friendly. Had the eggs benny classic and the chai latte and both were excellent. A good price for the...size and taste of the meal.More

Starting our 37th year this month. Im so happy you enjoyed yourself. Thank you
Do not say no to the bread basket - no matter what. I could eat a loaf of that bread no problem. I loved the salty crust.
3 of us had -The Halibut and chips, the Reuben sandwich and the famous meatloaf as seen on...the TV show.
The only thing I would change - and this is my pet peeve at any restaurant - I wished they made their own french fries instead of the frozen ones. If they had home made chips - OMG....this would have been a 6 star lunch. I hate frozen FF.
Staff are pretty awesome too!More

We like to use fresh fries as well. During the months of September-October we use frozen because we are waiting for the new supply of potatoes. So happy you enjoyed yourselves.
What a great find ! There is a reason why it is ranked so high. The food was so good as the mile high apple pie was amazing! Homemade sauces and then the service made it event better. Melat was awesome ! Glad she recommended...the cream cheese / syrup addition to the waffles ! She was such a perfectly attentive server without being in your space room much.
Would go again for breakfast / brunch again FOR SURE! Felt comfortable and safe dining in during Covid.More

Thank you so much. Our family loves Melat too! So glad you enjoyed yourselves. Be safe
We offer a gluten free bun with a designated toaster. We also offer a rice flour waffle with a designated baker. We do not have separate utensils or separate plates etc. I hope this helps you.
