Fresh home made, wholesome, meals, with wonderful flavour. Service is pleasant and cheerful, with a side of dry humour. Very generous portions at a reasonable cost. This quant little old building has a lot of character and charm and the roof top patio is delightful.
Not your typical burger joint a definite must try if you are in Southampton>

We are regulars at Armen's and enjoy the meals there every time. The facility is not fancy but definitely eclectic. Due to the small staff there is a limited set menu, but it is all excellent! We have typically found the people who think the staff are rude come in at busy times then push for special orders that are not on the menu. If you want fancy service - wrong place. If you want great food at a good price, with a fun show - this the best place in town! Looking forward to the next visit. Thanks to Armen and the staff!

Best Restaurant in Southampton!

As the name suggests, it’s a café, so don’t come expecting a 5 star dining experience. What makes the place unique is the healthy and delicious menu choices, quirky building and decoration, and the restaurant staff.

You should avoid this place if you:
1- Don’t have the patience to wait in a line up for few minutes
2- Can’t stand dry humor
3- Have food allergies
4- Expect to get a personal massage with a $10 meal purchase
5- Believe you are a direct descendant of one of the great prophets, and therefore deserve special treatment.

Otherwise, this is a great place to enjoy awesome food, and relax in the lifestyle of small town Ontario.

Rudest restaurant experience ever...not once twice...the food might be good so I have heard but who needs the owners attitude. Funny when I tell people who set local they all agree and laugh like this is normal......no need ....

I have to disagree with some previous reviewers. I love the ambiance at Armen's. It suits the casual, open and friendly interchange that so frequently goes on between chef, servers and visitors, and makes it a wonderful place to be.

The food is so tasty, and so interesting. A REAL Spanish omelette, as you would get in Spain, because that's probably where Armen picked up the recipe – for instance.

The food is also healthy and nutritious, with wholesome ingredients.

Prices are higher than in MacDonald's, but they're not out of sight by any means. What you're paying for is excellent food value and the service of warm and wonderful staff.

PLUS, quantities are generous. As a retiree, I get to take some home for supper!
