We went here for breakfast because it is rated #1 in Hamilton. We have lived in Hamilton for years and go out for breakfast regularly. This was the worst breakfast we have ever had. The home fries had a funky spice that were not to...More

I was happy with the preparation of the food, interesting combinations and great flavours. Service was fast and friendly, but the price point was a little high for breakfast items. I would consider it for a nice occasional special treat.

We had a platter with 3 eggs, hash browns, bacon, sausage and a pancake. Disappointingly, it only came with one piece of toast for 3 eggs. $3 to add real maple syrup is a bit much. Also had the biscuits. They are too big to...More

Randomly I choose the place and I was not disappointed, the service was great and so was the food and the ambience. The menu comes without price and I knew it wouldn't be cheap. It was worth and most importantly, my wife loved it.

Service was good . Food is tasty but salad was wilted and had some wilted black spots . A bit pricey . Parking is not easy and mostly paid parking around .
