Good place for a sit down breakfast. Came in 2 mornings with 6-8 adults and 12 or so kids after a hockey game and there were no long waits, billing worked out well and the food was good. Home made bread here was a bonus.

We went to the Wooden Nickle for breakfast. They weren't full but service was quite slow. We had to ask for coffee and water refills every time we wanted as the waitresses didn't notice. They have fantastic home made sour dough bread but it was...More
