Been going here for years forward breakfast. They have kept things the same as the previous owner regarding the food. Great job on the renovations which were badly needed. Been thinking about trying their lunch and we finally did that today. Both our lunches were bland...sauce was tasteless as was the chicken. Fries were nothing great. Will stick to breakfast... More

For the price point Meadows is decent. The breakfast food and coffee are pretty average, but if you want to start the day by watching sports highlights while drinking something hot then it plays well. Meadows could improve by having more cordial service and cooking their potatoes longer.

I'm a fussy Eggs Benedict eater. I like eggs but can't stand them runny. Seriously grosses me out. I always request the eggs cooked hard. Sometimes they arrive that way but not always. Met friends here for brunch on the basis of good reviews we saw online. I ordered the Benny with Ham, the classic. The place was busy on... More

I just wanted to say that I went in with my family the other day and they have really cleaned the place up. The renos look great and they were able to keep that old school diner vibe. Family owned and run too! Great diner with great food. Great job to Meadow's Diner. We will be back.

Before I begin I want to say this is not a food review. It would be but was not given the chance to eat anything even though we were given menus. We entered, sat down and the server handed us menus then asked what we would like to drink. While we were looking at the menus we were told you... More

We have been for breakfast all over town and this is by far our favourite. Casual and friendly family run dinner - great prices - I highly recommend it.

To say that the exterior of this restaurant needs a face lift is an understatement but that the limit of any criticisms of this place. We stopped by for breakfast and enjoyed a superb 3-egg ham and cheese omelet and their "mix and mash", each with tasty piping hot home fries, toast and bottomless coffee for a price that can't...
