Usually end up here every weekend. The food is always good and the staff are always busy but never forget about their customers.

How does a Vietnamese chef produce such incredible cottage cheese perogies and Glumz Kuak! It's a warm and friendly atmosphere with delicious food. And friendly staff!!

I'll start off by saying I would come back here because it's a local place, but I didn't enjoy everything about this restaurant. I had an omelette and it was terrific. The hashbrowns were great too. The owner served us and prices were only ok,...More

This is our favourite breakfast spot in the city! Everything off the griddle is super tasty and always hot! Decor inside gives it a unique diner style feel. The corned beef hash with eggs benedict is my favourite item on their menu. Haven't tried the...More
