We had a great Sunday morning breakfast. It was really busy and we sat at the counter where our coffee cup was always topped up! I had the breakfast special- egg, cheese and ham on a toasted English Muffin. It was perfect. The server was...More

An interesting place to eat. Food is basic and cheap so don`t expect 5 star but still worth it. Two can eat for about $20.00 or less. Service always friendly. 50`s decor. Can get busy.

It might have been an 'off' day. We had eaten here once before on our way through Grand Bend, and don't quite remember it this way. This place could be quaint with some 50's - type memorabilia, but it ends there. The menu is limited...More
