A go-to breakfast place in the neighborhood, I make it there happily every few months or so. A fun decor, changing from time to time, it is a nice atmosphere. I've ordered a range of meals, and am always satisfied. Keep up the good work.

The diner is nice and clean. The staff was excellent from the manager down. We were greeted in a friendly manner, was informed by the manger about the happenings at the bar which is part of the restaurant. The food was good and a good price. The staff was very attentive. Looking forward to our next visit, as well as... More

Bacon was underdone, and my pancakes were a bit undercooked in the middle, batter was still gooey. My husband said his omelette was good, potatoes greasy. The coffee was awful. Diners should have AWESOME coffee, strong and rich. This stuff was very watery, no flavour. Staff was friendly.

What more could you ask for, very friendly staff, helpful, and always smiling! My salad was large, flavourful, and my mate had eggs for lunch at 2 pm, I like a restaurant that serves breakfast anytime!!

We love having breakfast on a weekday at Fil’s Diner. It’s quiet and the waitresses are beyond friendly! It’s a great way to start your day. The service is quick and the food is plentiful. I always order poached eggs and sausages they’re cooked to perfection. Our only complaint is that there’s too much food. Great value for the money.... More

A very friendly place with lots of regular patrons. Their all-day breakfast is a favourite. But........ they also have the BEST Club Sandwich in the whole of Ottawa !!!!!!

Came here with hubby. We were greeted by the owner's wife. She was very helpful and courteous. Nice decor of the oldies diner. The music is great too. Oldies are always good to listen too. Not too loud, you can hear yourself talking. Lol. The breakfast is good. The homefries are my favorite. Potatoes with onions, peppers and yummy seasonings.... More

Go for a great breakfast and enjoy the old school diner charm of Fil's on Wellington. You can sit in a booth or on a stool at the counter. Try the breakfast sandwich, you'll leave full!
