Best Benny in town, couldn't tell you much about any of the other food because I always get the Benny. But the service is great always smiling faces. The restaurant it's self is very cute little ol" dinner.

“Great diner experience”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

This is a classic diner in the old style, with a formica counter and some stools, plus tables and chairs. It's been there forever, and shows it, but that's part of its attraction.

I've only eaten there once, so this is not a large sampling, but I recently travelled all across Canada from Nova Scotia, taking two months to do it, and the Ideal served me the best omelette I had anywhere along the way. Friendly service and a nice ambience to the place.

If you like old style diners, this is the place in Campbell River.
