I would probably love any place that has an all day breakfast, but wellington diner also has an awesome variety and what I consider a creative menu. You can find regular diner food but also tranditional dishes with a twist. The service is nice, the...More

We sat on the patio for a relaxed Sunday lunch. The staff were friendly and helpful. To start we ordered the calamari, which was lightly spiced and cooked perfectly. My husband ordered the poutine which was very good and quite a generous serve. I had...More
