As we left Niagara Falls we began looking for a 'greasy spoon' for breakfast. We drove up to Johns, found an accessible parking spot (a rare event in Niagara Falls) and wondered in. We were greeted immediately with friendliness and a smile. We found ourselves a seat in this cozy, quaint local eating spot. This was the breakfast environment we... More

The prices are extremely reasonable..place itself is cozy with mostly booths..service was fast considering the place was full.. It was New Years Day , and I was so happy to have found this little hidden gem.. Worth the drive from the falls district and on an alternative route to the QEW heading north..

I came in with 2 of my friends. We walked in and it was packed. We found a table and got service right away. The fish and chips were fabulous so was the coleslaw. I will definitely come again. Prices were good too. The one negative I would say is it was very cold in the restaurant.

Good food, generous portions, reasonable prices, friendly service. The menu has some European items, as well as traditional North American fare. The soups are all homemade. This place seems to be unknown to the tourists, which is refreshing in this town (nothing against the tourists; they're instrumental to the local economy, and hey, we've all been tourists somewhere). The decor... More
