A favorite breakfast eatery in town, I find it to be just "OK". I personally don't care for the food. The atmosphere is that of a busy breakfast joint, with open kitchen and counter seating as well as table seating. The staff are friendly but very busy and often forgetful. Very popular with locals and tourists alike, go early as... More

I had the smoked salmon salad - one of the best salads ever. McGill's has a very complete menu for a somewhat small place. Breakfast offered all day. I saw an awesome BLT delivered to another table which I will have next time. A good sign of consistent quality is that locals make up a large portion of the diners.

This was our fourth option on a Monday morning and we struck gold. Great for GF people. They have toast that can be applied to anything. I had the smoked salmon Benedict. So good but parts were a little cool. I wasn't sure if that was intentional. They were great refilling coffee and I would go bad happily. All my... More

We visited McGill's three times during our week in CB. It was yummy each time. Very laid back atmosphere and casual dining experience. The waitstaff were friendly and pleasant, but in no hurry.

Whenever we travel we love to eat where the locals seem to congregate. This is one of those places. We ate breakfast here 2 days and the service and food was excellent. We saw 2 of our bus drivers in here and a group of firemen came in as we were leaving.

Had the veggie scromelette. It was pretty good, but the avocado was bad, and that was disappointing since I love avocado. My husband had the French toast and the chorizo scromelette. Said both were excellent. Just a heads up: they do not have espresso or fresh juice. Drip coffee was local and good according to my husband.
