Great brunch spot: airy, bright, clean and frequented by locals of all ages. Generous sized, rich tasting coffee alongside truly delicious eggs.

Tia's is our favourite spot for lunch and our last visit reminded us how great it is. Our server Athena was lovely, answering all our questions and kept our coffee mugs full. I had the chicken caesar wrap & yam fries with their delicious chipotle mayo dip. Eating every single bite I was stuffed full !! I've tried many of... More

Americano coffee was the worst I've ever had. I needed to throw it out as I could not drink it. I was with a friend who also ordered the same coffee and she couldn't drink hers either

Tia's offers great food and a friendly atmosphere. Very much a feel-good food type diner. Large servings will challenge the biggest appetite! Mexican food is authentic and hearty. It has a home town feel where all are welcome. Sandwiches are filling and delicious, soups taste like home. Yam fries and onion rings complete an excellent burger selection.

Very nice bacon, toast, and especially the potatoes. Biggish servings. Good coffee bar. Friendly. A limited view of the harbor.

We wanted something to take for a picnic, and Tia's fit the bill. A nachos creation barely fit in the stereo. take out container, the chicken topped caesar salad was the real deal, minus the anchovies. With a large chai latte, came to under $30.

Tia's seems to be the go to place for breakfast. Its fairly busy for both breakfast and lunch. Prices are reasonable. The food however seems thrown together with no thought or effort put into making it good. Maybe because there is no competition. The service is slow but our server was polite and did her job. Some other staff were... More

Big meals, well priced, but average food. Service is friendly and efficient. Omelettes are a bit average. If you want a big meal go with something with French toast.
