This place was friendly, and easy going. They had 5 types of soup that suited our family fine after a cold day out side. The soup was really good.

Stopped in here while visiting the downtown area, glad we did. The food, service and feel of this diner were all excellent. Will be going here again when in the area, well done to everyone at Duncan's Cafe!

While the owner's recent behaviour is questionable, I've never had a bad meal here. I absolutely love the food and the atmosphere. Falafel is amazing.

Quaint country cafe for breakfast. Good service. Reasonable priced. Hollandaise sauce was perfect. Only negative was only 1 free refill on coffee. Otherwise would be 5 stars

My husband and I visited for a late lunch today. We are new to the area and have tried several other restaurants, but were looking for something new. Duncan's Cafe was towards the top of the Tripadvisor list for Collingwood so we decided to give it a whirl. The service was friendly and the local art on the walls was... More

We have been here quite a few times and love it. The Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine are honestly the best I've ever had. The hollandaise sauce is incredible. Yummy coffee and fair prices... no need to mission to the Sunset Grill in the village to wait in a huge line - go to Duncan's!

We let Trip Advisor guide us to this little gem. Our server greeted and seated us with friendly efficiency that was evident throughout the meal. She was attentive without being oppressive, a trait we value highly. We opted to share an appetizer and a main. Not only was our server gracious about this, they split and garnished the plates in...

I've been coming here for years. Breakfast in particular was always a great value. The coffee used to be a high point featured from a prominent local importer/roaster. Today the breakfast was ok, but the last few times the coffee has been just awful. Watery, tasteless. Last time I actually complained and asked for a stronger cup. Same. Today I... More

Michael, sorry you did not enjoy the whole bean , fresh ground, freshly brewed, coffee we have been using for 15 years. Customers love our coffee, and always ask for a free refill. At one point , 9 years ago ,we also carried the local coffee you mentioned, for a few months. We also have imported espresso whole beans for... More

We had lunch with a friend here and the food was great. They make wonderful home made soups. Our friend and I had a very good mushroom vegetable soup and my husband had the mulligatawny. Both were excellent. We asked to split the smoked meat on rye sandwich with a house salad. The server brought it to us on separate... More
