My wife and I were looking for something a little different than our usual date night supper places. This was our first time here and we were both extremely pleased with everything. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, the service was very quick and the food was fantastic. We’ve just found our “Hidden Jewel “. Thank you for a wonderful experience

It took over 30 minutes for them to take our initial drink order. The server was kind an apologetic. The food was ok but at a price point that should come with better quality and preparation. Our appetizer was out in less than 5 minutes and was dry, I’m wondering if it was microwaved…The lasagna was bland and greasy. Their fries were very good. We choose this restaurant for the variety of options on the menu but I would not choose it again.

Party of 5. Extensive drink and food menu. Enough variety to satisfy everyone’s tastes. Everyone was happy with their meal. Love the fish tacos! Atmosphere was cozy - open diner feel so if looking for something more intimate, maybe not the place. Though they do have a separate area for private functions. For the quality and service, can’t beat the prices! We’ll be back!

The drinks are too expensive. My steak sandwich was a little tough, but the Caesar salad was great, and rest of our party enjoyed their food. My sangria was a bit tart, and the bartender fixed that for me which was awesome. Service was awesome!

My classic bene was terrible. The eggs were not cooked. When I went to break the yolk all the clear white of the egg ran out and the yolk was not cooked. Infact it was still cold. The bacon must have just been run over the pan as it was mostly raw. The hollandaise sauce had no taste and it was runny like water. I was wondering if it was old. We had a lovely attentive server. When she saw my plate She offered to return it to the kitchen for me but I declined as I had lost my appetite after seeing this mess. Even my dining friend comment on how awful it looked. This was my first time at this reataurant and probably my last.

Never disappoints! The eggs benedict is delicious and very saucy! Not enough sauce is the worst. Properly medium poached 👌. Their shredded hashbrowns and perfect. Browned enough with little bits of dark crispy edges without being dry. It’s all really fresh. The staff are excellent. Prompt and friendly and more than competent.

Came in for my birthday celebration with friends and was treated exceptionally well. The server was friendly and took great care of us. She somehow managed to keep all our drink and food orders straight even when we switched seats while visiting.

I was given a complimentary Elegant Banana dessert and it was exquisite!

Very bland food. Zero flavour on anything. “Soft” poached eggs were hard. Drinks were decent. Server was very nice, but all staff had their masks below their noses. Restaurant has a cheap greasy diner feel with food to match.

The food and service were excellent as always. I keep bringing at least one new person each time and their response is "I'm coming back/ ordering from here again. Sorry no photos, but this time I had the Mediterranean salad with chicken, one friend had the vegetarian lasagna and Ceasar salad, the other had the avocado salad and a cup of broccoli soup. All absolutely delicious!

Very disappointed with Mother’s Day lunch. Online menu had Mother’s Day Breakfast and Dinner menu but didn’t state time for dinner so supper or lunch?? Server was incredibly slow. Asked us with 10 sec of sitting down if we wanted something to drink. We needed a minute to decide. We only saw her 15 min later!! With only 3 other tables occupied in the place.
Food was nothing special at all.
