Have visited a few times now since they opened the new place and is a consistent breakfast winner. Almost like home made breakfast. Sometimes the wait can get annoying but usually worth it. I usually have bacon, eggs, and home fries at this place. I'd love sausages but don't like either of the two options they offer. They say famous... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and both your positive and construtive comments. Sorry to hear that neither the Farmers sausage or the breakfast links are to your liking. Since opening 8 years ago we have tried various brands and the ones we currently offer seem to please most folks. As for the "Famous" Hash, we are... More

Went here for the first time today and was pleasantly surprised. There were many vehicles outside at noon but the diner is very large inside. We were approached shortly after sitting down and our food came in a timely manner during this busy time. We all enjoyed our food. Would not hesitate to go again and have already recommended it...

Every second Sunday they serve rosti at St Dave's. It's a real treat. Wonderful staff, great service and tasty food.

Once you get past the lineup, staff are quick to get you something to drink and take your order. The kitchen is a bit slow but considering the number of patrons it is no surprise. The food is excellent!

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, and your compliments. You are bang on when you say it is the number of patrons that slows the food down some times. We pride ourselves on running a very efficient kitchen which, on a busy Sunday for example, will put out one made to order meal every 55... More

Saint Dave's seems to have recovered and is thriving after moving from the old (burned down) location to the new. Food is as good, service is as good. The wait can be longer here, perhaps because there's more take-out orders? Best breakfast in town.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Our apologies if you have had to wait a little longer. It's taken a few weeks to get back into the grove and get comfortable with the new layout (and learning where everthing is now ). Although the facilty is larger, we have kept the same number of seats as... More

First time diner from out of town. Small town atmosphere. Lots of locals. The staff was friendly. The walls were filled with historic photos of the town of Lindsay's past. Being a history buff and new to the area, I enjoy that. There was a long weekend buffet special for $12.95. The buffet was good in terms of food and... More
