Visiting my daughter in Ottawa, looking for something other than the Byward Market and the Wellington Diner was it. Breakfast all over the menu, diner style food, surrounded by pictures of Little Rascals, Captain America and everything else that took me back to my childhood. Be prepared for a wait at the door if you get there after a bit... More

Once a week I go in there get my usual to bring home as it is always so busy. I do not mind bringing it home as I only live moments away. In the last month though I have noticed the quality has taken a big turn, in the downward motion sadly. Your breakfast is inconsistent.Sometimes my once beloved "homies"... More

Was walking in the neighbourhood in the early morning, looking for a place to eat when the Wellington Diner caught my eye. Came in to a bustling, but very relaxed diner that serves the craziest, most awesome breakfasts, among other things (big menu, lots to choose from!). I had the "Stoner Hash" (according to my server, it's named after an... More

We dropped in her for lunch and were quite surprised.....the food and service was excellent. We had the special which was a grilled cheese with a fried egg, avocado and tomato, with homemade vegetable soup. We cleaned our plates....good indication that the food was great! Will definitely return.

We had a very bad food, but cheap; but worse part was that we wanted to order some sweets and we were told that they have nothing and then they ask us to leave. We were told that they don't want people stay long so there is no long line-up, But when they ask us to leave, they were 3... More

Noone asked you to leave. That just wouldn't happen. The diner doesn't offer sweets during breakfast and brunch. You were most likely told of this and billed. If you had bad food why would you want to stay and order more? The diner is not a lounge and we definitely take care in serving the brunch line efficiently. I would... More

We celebrated my daughter's birthday here Sunday. I took her here a few months ago and despite their massive menu I had the same thing as I did last time because I enjoyed it so much. There were 5 adults and 4 of us had Eggs Benedict. Its the Hollandaise sauce that really makes or breaks an eggs benedict and... More

This is one of our favourite places in the Westboro area. There is all day breakfast and a fantastic assortment of elevated diner favourites. The 'mother clubber' is delicious, a breakfast take on the classic club with fried egg and avocado instead of turkey and bacon - so yummy!!! The pies are out of this world - amazing banana cream...

I truly just could eat their homies everyday, best in Ottawa dare I say! I really wish they would expand on their vegan options though even by having vegan dips. All in all a good place to go!

This restaurant was today victim of it's own success. It is Labour Day and most all restaurants were closed. The staff was plentiful, the clients were very numerous and the restaurant was very very busy. Some even left because it was taking too much time just to give an order. Our breakfast was good and hot. We had to wait... More
