Wonderful food and reasonable prices. The menu is somewhat limited but I'm a picky eater and loved the different take on the coleslaw. Seating is not the most comfortable but the food made up for it.

Ordered the Eggs Benny and really enjoyed however the service is very relaxed. Would have liked servers to be more attentive and actually interested in helping you.

Extremely noisy. Waiter refused to turn down speaker over our table. Food terrible (onion mushroom tart with a crust made of concrete). Waiter had no idea who had ordered what when he brought the food. Plonked bills down in centre of table when we were done. One diner had to argue that her bill wasn't among them.

We came across 2 Chefs Affair the night before and checked out their breakfast menu in the window. When we returned the following morning the place was packed but we were fortunate to get the last table. All the food is freshly prepared. Good atmosphere and service. Highly recommend.

Had the daily special which was salmon and cream cheese quiche. The crust was somewhat burnt though the rest tasted fine. Salad dressing was a garlic vinaigrette. Somewhat bland Something about the tables and benches made them feel sticky. Also the black pillows that they had on the bench show and all kinds of stain marks.
