“A nice little diner”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 March 2017 via mobile

I was looking for a place to grab some breakfast on my way to west Hamilton this morning and I spotted The Valley Charcoal as I was passing through Dundas so I decided to stop in. This is a nice little diner that serves a pretty good breakfast, I ordered the classic Canadian breakfast, back bacon and scrambled eggs and it was done to perfection. The service was fast and friendly and the coffee was great as well. I wouldn't hesitate to return to The Valley Charcoal the next time I'm passing through Dundas, check it out for yourself.

This is a comfortable family-style diner with very good food, reasonable prices and friendly, attentive service. Nothing fancy but a great option for breakfast.

Don't get caught off guard -- they only accept cash so stop by the bank first.

This is a simple family style diner. There are booths for four and a couple that will seat up to six with wooden chairs. There are no hosts or waitresses. You seat yourself and then go to the counter to order your food. When it is ready it will be brought to your table.

The menu is simple with all day breakfast and a selection of sandwiches. The toasted western sandwich was a three egg omelette with lots of ham and onion folded over so that it was 2 inches thick. It was served with a few thin dill pickle slices. Come hungry as the portions are large.

Recently had breakfast at the Valley Charcoal. The food is very good and the service is prompt. You start by ordering at the counter and you pay ahead of time. Find a place to sit, usually with friends and after a short wait, your food is brought to you, usually by a very friendly server. Free coffee refills. The prices are about average for breakfast these days. This place is one of Dundas' good places to dine for breakfast.

Big time breakfast place.
Well portioned.
A bit pricey and not found of the the cash only policy.
Order at front and delivery to the table does somewhat ensure accuracy of order.
The service is rapid and servers are polite.
Parking on Sunday is no charge out back.
Very good food from my palate ' taste experiences.
You won't leave hungry.
I have not seen many kids in the place but sometimes that isn't always the worst thing when you want a quiet bite.
