This is a review of the Ancaster Ontario location. We go there for the breakfast dishes. This restaurant has ample parking and is quite quick at delivering your order. Decent prices and moderately large servings. Many booths or tables. Not my favourite coffee blend. This...More

Quick and average. We had been here before and it was usually a little better. Coffee wasn't very good. I guess for the money it wasn't to bad. I will eat here again, but won't go out of my way to get there.

A good breakfast at a reasonable price and excellent service. It is good to know that they serve breakfast all day.

Food is greasy and slow service. Not what it used to be. Value for your money is not here. Hopefully they get better.

Stopped in for early lunch, great serving breakfast all day. Eggs Benedict done right, just wish we could have homemade Hollandaise.

Although the decor is a bit more 'trendy' don't let the reviews fool you, this is just a plain Jane breakfast spot. Nothing spectacular to report, but no complaints as well. Would definitely visit again. People stop giving everything that's edible 5*s

Listen. This is not a fine dining establishment by any means. It's clean and can get pretty busy and noisy at times. But if you want a decent breakfast at a good price you can't go wrong. I eat here regularly with friends and the...More
