During a recent visit to Sydney, I decided to find a breakfast spot downtown and thought to try the Maple Leaf. Unfortunately, the timing wasn't great. It looked as if two student-age guys who seemed to be cooks had decided not to show up until late that morning. One of the waitresses had been in the back cooking and was... More

Very inexpensive Sleepy Bee breakfast, which was tasty and good value. Recently renovated and I still smell paint. Locals seem to frequent based on conversation.

Great spot to go for a quick breakfast. Bacon and eggs is always done perfectly. Omelettes are really good. Reasonble price.

It is dark inside as someone said, but after my eyes adjusted it was fine. Service was prompt. We ordered the lunch specials. My wife had the hot turkey sandwich, and I had the hamburger deluxe.

The service in this dank hole some restaurateur has lost their soul in, is mediocre at best while the cook hasn't quite figured out Canadian qusine. If your taste buds love badly cooked tasteless dishes this is the place for you,me I would rather not.

Had the vegetable soup and chicken salad sandwich. It was tasty and pretty simple, comfort food. Inexpensive too. Nothing fancy here but it was a good place to stop for lunch.
