We love having breakfast on a weekday at Fil’s Diner. It’s quiet and the waitresses are beyond friendly! It’s a great way to start your day. The service is quick and the food is plentiful. I always order poached eggs and sausages they’re cooked to...More

A very friendly place with lots of regular patrons. Their all-day breakfast is a favourite. But........ they also have the BEST Club Sandwich in the whole of Ottawa !!!!!!
