My mom and I met my daughter here for breakfast, easily accessible off the QEW and in the heart of beautiful Grimsby. This place is a short drive from the Lincoln wine route, King Street. Our breakfasts were very good. My mom had the salmon...Benedict and the hollandaise sauce was great. The potatoes were delicious. We really wanted a latte and the waitress let us know the machine hadn’t been turned on yet but it would take 20 mins to warm up. It took more like 40 mins but the lattes were delivered after we had eaten, which was great. They were delicious and worth the wait. The restaurant is quite large, very clean, lots of families and natural light. Could use more staff for a Sunday morning but the people working were doing a good job. Also important to note is they have a small patio for outdoor dining and their patio is dog friendly! I will eat here again.More

We are new to the area. Walked over for breakfast. I had the salmon benny, my husband the regular benny and my son the English breakfast. Delicious all around. Really good hollandaise sauce. We had no issue with service. We also keep in mind that...the industry is facing huge staffing shortages and know most restaurants are doing the best they can. We will be back.More

Worst service I have ever had - they have no manager taking control waited to get seated waited for menus Waited for coffee - ordered - meals were wrong - waited for the proper food to come out - food was mediocre bacon was too...crispy ( dry ) - never topped Up coffee - never checked in on table after meals were Delivered - waited for Final bill - then had to wait for debit machine ( they only had 1 !!!?) We were there probably and extra 40 min longer than we should have been - I did see a help wanted poster In door way - they need more than help - they need an owner that cares or a manager that takes over and the waitstaff need WAY more Training ! We will never go here again and if I can defer anyone from this review to visit - save yourself !!! Stay away My opinion… they will be closed before the end of summer.More

My sister and I went here this morning for breakfast after swimming. What a huge waste of our time and money. Long wait for our food - had to ask our waitress where our order was; one waitress for this large restaurant, and one manager...who wasn’t doing her job. My sister’s meal was the biggest disappointment; one piece of dried out ham that was inedible and obviously had been left under the warmer and hair on her toast. Even had a long wait to pay our bill! This place is a dud and we will never go back.More

My family and i were out for a drive and found this restaurant in Grimsby, Ontario. Being it was lunch time, we thought it would be worth giving a try. It is decent enough inside. Decor is what you'd find in a family restaurant. It...took quite a while for our server to come to our table but our drinks were delivered fairly quick. An eclectic menu with no apparent theme. I ordered the Grimsby salad, which is supposed to come with Cajun Grilled Chicken. That didn't happen. I let it slide as I knew that our serve may not make it back to our table with a remake before everyone else was done. The salad itself was delicious, but the chicken would have been a nice finish had it had the cajun dusting on it. The food was decent and everyone in our party enjoyed themselves. After this dining experience, there really is nothing that would scream to us to make this a restaurant one to revisit.More

Been many times for breakfast with friends an we all agree it’s one of our favourites for a morning meal. Served fresh and very good quality. Been once for lunch and it was good.

Great tasting burger! I’ve been there 3 times and had bacon and eggs, buffalo chicken wrap and burger and fries. Can’t really do bad with bacon and eggs but the burger was delicious. The gravy and and fries were super good. Good pricing for a...cafe. Would recommend to go there either for breakfast or a sandwich.More

We arrive at our favourite breakfast venue at approx. 9:30 a.m. this past drizzly Sunday. The venue is located in a small strip mall with plenty of free parking. The restaurant was quite full already, but the owner did find us a table near the...window. Carole always order eggs with peameal bacon & tea with honey, while I always order one of the four different Eggs Benedict on the menu with their Brazilian coffee, but this time it was slightly different for me. This a.m. they had a 5th choice advertised off menu as we walked in, Lobster Benedict @ $15.95, which was difficult to turn down. Given the large amount of people there & the steady influx of even more Customers, our meals did arrive approx. 10 - 15 minutes later, which allowed us to enjoy a nice conversation. Both of our meals had awesome, crispy home fries. Carole also had brown toast, while mine also cam with a fruit cup. Carole once again thoroughly enjoyed her meal & drink. I absolutely loved my Lobster Benedict, the homefries & my 3 cups of Brazilian coffee. As we were preparing to pay and leave, we noticed a line of approx. 6 Customers waiting to come in to enjoy their breakfasts. We will return!More

I got three cocktails which were honestly great, and we ordered the firecracker shrimp appetizer and lettuce wraps. Let me say that the shrimp was honestly terrible. Tails were still on and drenched in sauce, so it was hard to tell. The lettuce wraps were...appealing. A huge head of lettuce which you simply cannot roll into anything, and mediocre stuffing. I cannot express enough how dissatisfied I was. The waiter was the only saving grace, but I will not go back!More

Greeted by welcoming staff. Our order was taken and not long to having our food placed in front of us. I had the breakfast special and it was tasty. Eggs Benedict with corned beef hashed potatoes and the creamy sauce, yum! Great local diner! Enjoy;-)

We came specifically to order the pork schnitzel. I even asked before I ordered if it was traditional schnitzel pounded very thin. The waitress confirmed it was. It came with a ton of gravy (which we didn't expect as it wasn't mentioned in the menu)....Frankly it was terrible. Very chewed and very disappointing. We substituted fries for mash and the fries were good. I think we will stick to ordering breakfast here.More

despite being busy with the 'after church' crowd, our service was quick. The food was very good - delicious fresh salads with very generous portions. Not sure if the dressings were made in house, but they were very good.
