One of the worst meals ever. Worst corn beef sandwich, nowhere close to a Druxys corn beef sandwich. Soup cold that was inedible. Empty tables not cleaned up. Just terrible.

we have been going to Williams for lunch at least 2-3 times a month for the past several years. It was reasonable and gave great food & service. Over the last 12 months we have seen the food quality going downhill and some of the staff give less than friendly service. We felt this may have been isolated experiences so,... More

We have always wanted to try Williams for food, now we know, once was enough. The featured Thai soup was off the menu, which was disappointment #1. Surely it would be easy enough to wipe the chalk off! So we had Mushroom and onion and French Onion. Both were tasty, and although we had ordered the side portion, it was... More

Their menu is quite diverse for a coffee shop/bistro. Perfect if you want a soup and half sandwich kind of meal, and their beverages (hot and cold) are very good!

There are a few of these cafes in Ontario but this is one of the best in this chain that I've been to...broad variety of fresh food available including an impressive variety of 'gluten friendly'. There's lots of space inside with tables and booths available. Excellent service and they bring your food to the table once you've ordered at the... More

We always enjoy a good cup of coffee or specialty tea. They have amazing sandwiches made to order. The dessert selection is always great. The place has a pleasant atmosphere and you never feel rushed.

Nice place to have a great cup of coffee and a decent healthy meal when you are on the run or just meeting a friend. Go there often.

A friend and i went to Williams pub in Barrie (Bryne Drive) for lunch. We chose the new pita pizzas advertised on the menu on the board. I wanted the chicken with the portobello mushrooms, but they were out of mushrooms. My friend chose the "Niagara" but asked for olives instead of the carmelized onions. They were out of olives....
