“A good friendly diner”
Reviewed 3 November 2012

I had lunch here 2 or 3 times whilst I was in Montreal. Food is okay, it is a diner after all! The service was friendly and welcoming.

“Better off trying another breakfast place”
Reviewed 13 October 2012

We ate breakfast here this morning, and although the menu has quite a nice selection once the food arrived, it wasn't what we expected. I do not recommend the crepes - they were not tasty. The coffee was tasteless - we should have waited to have lunch here, which I heard is very good.

“Worst ever”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

It's a great disservice this disgraceful, diabolical, repugnant eatery has to be rated. My family and I have not been so disgusted with any restaurant's service until we ate here. The table was not set, menus were not handed out and we were not attended to until ten minutes later. The waitress disappeared without bothering to ask what beverage we wanted. The Buddy Holly pizza was ridiculously salty. As though that was not pathetic enough, our order of chicken brochette had what presumably was human hair on it. Our server was no where to be seen so another person removed the offending dish. Later, our server emerged with a senior staff who issued a disingenuous apology. We politely declined his offer to have the dish replaced. When the check was called, our server Gaby had the temerity to demand a tip after repudiating any blame for the hair in the sandwich. It was her pointing out that the tip is not included in the total bill and that her service, as inferior as it was, was independent of the quality of food or any complications that might arise in the restaurant, that was so off putting. This sort of service was hardly worthy of a tip in the first place. It just added up to the worst dinner experience in what is otherwise a lovely city.

“Really nice restaurant”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

Really nice restaurant themed as a 50s diner. Had the club sandwich - good size portion and tasted fantastic. Dessert menu is quite large and also tasted fantastic. Good for families with young children.

“friendly service, good food”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

Reasonably priced food with very friendly service. Decked out as a 50's style diner it had a pleasant atmosphere and was fairly busy. We had an enjoyable meal. Good for families with young children.
