We had heard their breakfasts were good and the food plentiful. Today we tried the restaurant for breakfast as we usually eat at home. Lots of choices. I had a traditional of ham and eggs, hash browns and a choice of bread for toast. My husband had a bacon and egg with a 1/2 serving of waffles. Was very special... More

Fish and chips were awful. The fish was overcooked and batter was beyond crispy and so dark and dry. Fries were also overcooked and dry. Not even a little coleslaw on the side. Friend had the clubhouse which looked okay, real meat, not deli meat which was a plus. Previously we've been for breakfast which was not bad.

We have heard this is a good restaurant for breakfast but visited there today for the first time. It's a "good old diner" type of place...the service is prompt and very friendly...and busy so popular with the locals. We chose to have breakfast for lunch and it was delicious and hot.

Hole in the wall diner, simplistic and outdated but don't judge a book by the cover!!! Incredible breakfasts, lots of variety to chose from, insane chicken burger, so much flavor!!! Food is always piping hot!! Home cooking at its finest! Staff are always so polite and friendly, it's a shame they're only open 7-3!

Popular local restaurant with dated decor, serving only breakfast and lunch. Most servers seem to be long time employees who enjoy their work and provide great service. This is not fine dining by any means, but the menu is varied, portions are large, and our experience with either breakfast or lunch fare has always been good. My favourite aspect is... More

Blink and you'll miss it, it's tucked away back from the road but once you find this gem, you will enjoy their home cooked breakfast, especially the delicious pancakes!!! The food was good, the service was good, and I like the lighter-portions of the menu for a great price. And the coffee was nice and strong.
