Very eclectic and homey atmosphere. Enormous breakfast menu and breakfast items looked large and delicious. I had a simple grilled cheese lunch. Homemade comfort food. Both servers were extremely friendly and people focused. Laid back and cozy place. Great prices for a mountain town.

Visited for lunch. Average food and would classify it as plain and simple. Get your own water and coffee and order food. Reasonable burger but a bit greasy. Signage was brilliant though and spent the whole lunch time reading the walls.

Quirky cafe with plenty of character. The owner was very relaxed. Food came out quickly and free refills of tea and coffee. All was reasonably priced! Would recommend

Stopped in for breakfast on a drizzly Saturday morning. At 8:45am, there were still about a third of the tables open.....there was a small lineup when we left so it's a popular spot. And we could see why. Fast, efficient, friendly service (self serve coffee and tea so there's no waiting for refills) and nicely cooked meals. I had a... More

Decor was unique, full of old kitchen equipments and posters with humourous quotes all the way to the washroom. Self service on the coffee, tea and water. Service was quick & friendly with only one person manning the front. The food was simple & good, love the whole grain bread & pancakes and hash. We actually went there twice for... More

This is a very popular spot for breakfast and for good reason, they have a very large breakfast menu, with lots of healthy (or typical) choices. Their veggie frittata was scrumptious. I would've given this restaurant 5 stars, but the server gave a weird look when we said our friend had a fatal peanut allergy, which didn't instill a lot... More

Hands down the best little place for breakfast we've had all across Canada. We live here now and nothing changed. Huge servings and great prices. Lovely patio for the warmer months. Has a very rustic feel. Highly recommend the French toast. This place also uses the local IGA mountain bread.

We sat out on the deck. Had to ask to work the umbrella so i could see my company. The waiter/owner not particularily chatty or informative in regards to where to get our coffee. Food was edible,lots on the plate nothing fancy. Paid and left. Nothing about this breakfast was remarkable or memorable.
