My folks live in Ottawa...it's the only place that we'll go when dining out! There are lunch and dinner specials, a slice of nearly a dozen types of fresh-home made pies is available and the staff is always friendly. You can have breakfast at any time during the day, too!

I am so disappointed,and this was the same story the time before this it was the same story,bad food and bad service, but what got me the last time was they took my breakfast order three times and every time I had to send it back,twice because the order was not what I ordered but every time the cook did...

waitress was lazy and did not give us napkins or a straw for my two year old.. her cup was foam with the plastic lid so you require straws. Natasha is a good waitress who works there, we just didnt get her this time.

I've been coming here periodically for years. They are consistent in providing good quality attractive meals. Our salads were enormous and tasty. There is a bakery too and the pies look tempting but I'm not indulging. It's a much better choice than the buffet across the street.

Not upscale dining, not fast food, but perfect for a family sit-down breakfast or lunch or dinner. Food is wonderful homestyle favorites at very reasonable prices. Waitress was friendly, helpful, and could actually carry on an intelligent conversation. I was there about 8 p.m. and ordered a breakfast that was great, and then got my choice of the day's pies...
