Definitely a greasy spoon, I was leary initially but the breakfast was very good. I had the pork cutlet, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. I had them put the sauce on the side because if it's bad it can ruin your whole meal. I give the sauce a solid B and breakfast overall a B+. As for atmosphere, I can... More

What a surprise, I had not been here for almost 1 year. It is under new management And they have cleaned the place up, still have a few things to update, but that is not an issue. Great food & prices.

Up until today we have been very happy with this simple, modest, outdated little diner. We have only ever had weekend breakfasts so can only speak to that and to the service at breakfast time. Typical breakfast offerings... eggs, omelettes, bennies and some variations on the bunnies ie schnitzel plus, for me a big deal, hollandaise from scratch. The coffee... More

Super friendly staff, food was alright, received it quite quickly (though there was only one other person there at 830 in the morning).

I've driven by this place for literally years but never went in to try it out. I had some time as I had brought in my car for an early morning appointment a few blocks away. The trucker's breakfast was great value at $7 with a reasonable tip. Two eggs, two slices of toast, two pieces of bacon or sausage,... More

The big 6 has done a complete 360! The renos are amazing and the place actually looks... clean now. Great food at reasonable prices, and a whole new friendly staff who are obviously really trying. Glad to see this restaurant come back from the dead.

So very pleased to see the Big Six under new ownership in the last couple of weeks and TONS of improvement. The new owners have CLEANED! And cleaned. Seriously cleaned. It's still a greasy spoon (which we love) but the spoons aren't greasy. The food quality has gone up--excellent Trucker's Breakfast ($5.75 for 2 eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast)... More

Years ago, when my son was a baby, we would wheel in for a morning coffee break, enjoying the neighbourhood diner vibe. When he was a little older, my husband would take our son our Saturday mornings while I slept in; they LOVED that they would walk in, the server would glance with a questioning look, and if my husband...

During a morning walk around the neighborhood, a friend and I decided to grab a quick breakfast. We found Big 6 with good reviews and decided to try it out. With the huge servings and unlimited coffee refills, what more could I ask for. I'm not a big breakfast eater and asked to take-away what's left of my pancake breakfast... More
