Lineup out the door on Sundays is a given for this place. The service was friendly and the food is great- overall a good spot for brunch.

Super breakfast at low cost during the week here. Advantage is great service, sunshine window seats, and easy parking.

We end up at The Diner every weekend for brunch either on Saturday or Sunday. This morning it was definitely not the pleasant experience it usually is. After waiting in line for 20 minutes the owner started yelling at the customers he wouldn't seat anyone...More

I respect your opinion but saying anyone was yelled at is more than stretching the truth. We don't seat tables unless the whole group is present and accountable to be sat which clearly wasn't the case. Was it? This is never yelled and the owner...More

Ottawa is known for its diners. Wellington is one of the best where I have eaten thus far. Food was so good, served hot and in no time. We had brunch. Service was good as well. We'll definitely go again soon! If you're into brunch...More

A neat little diner with great choices. I had breakfast (Greek breakfast with pea meal bacon side) and my dad had liver. Both were good, great service and fair prices (approx $30, included coffee/tea).
