Really good smoked meat. Good breakfast or brunch section. Fast service and reasonable pricing. Very convenient and central location for the East end.Right across from the St. Laurent Shopping Centre.

Cusisine: Canadian/American standard fare. Portions are large, you may want to share a dish if your appetite is not was it used to be... Venue: Large restaurant, but very busy, specially during the breakfast and lunch time frame. Decor is based around the entertainment stars of years gone by, a bit tired but still interesting. During the busy time, the... More

We were there for breakfast. The menu had plenty of choices and the food tastes great. The staff was friendly and coffee tasted good - great way to start the day!

I searched Trip Advisor for local breakfast places and chose this one due to the reviews. Well, I will add another good review to them: food was plentiful quick and tasted good, the service was friendly and the price was fair. This is an excellent breakfast choice in Ottawa.

Family found a good selection for a variety of adult and kid choices. Went in the late afternoon and place was busy. Good choice in Ottawa.

We were a rather large group and they handled it well. The place was quit for a saturday night. There were only 2 or three other people other than our group of 20. $5.00 pints were great and it was a very good selection to choose from. The food was average but good. In other words, nothing really to die... More

The food here is fine, the prices are not. While they do have some specials if you stray from them you will pay a pretty penny. The service is average. This isn't the place you want to go unless you have the budget for it.

One of several breakfast/brunch joints in the same area - nothing special about this diner, yet in the interest of saving time, it's one of the one's in that area that tends to have the shorter lineups on the weekends!

Over priced! Food was terrible. I ordered the chicken wrap and it was awful. My daughter ordered a cheese burger and the meat tasted like a cheap frozen burger. My husband had the pizza. He said it was good but not worth $20. It cost us close to $70 for a wrap, burger and pizza. Way overpriced!!
