I used to take my dear Mother there, as we like John +Denise, and their friendly service! You get bang for your buck, and John tells stories from the past when he owned Morrison's Rst> Danny W Kemp President Kiwanis Club of Kingston

John's is a classic diner-type. It's not fancy but is clean & the food is good. John is incredibly hard-working but always takes time to talk to the customers. If you're looking for a great diner breakfast & a hot cup of joe at cheap prices this is the place.

Time warp. $4 for breakfast! I'd say it's about 50/50 you're going to enjoy the food, but even when the food is undercooked, overcooked, or otherwise poorly prepared, it's still an enjoyable experience. John has to be over 90, and he's still doing pretty well.

If you like to find that "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant, this is the place for you. The restaurant features that old style diner decor. Booths up one side and down the middle with stools at the counter. The prices are very reasonable, and the hamburgers were homemade. The owner does a different take on french fries. He uses small potato wedges that... More

Eating at this quaint little home-style diner was was like stepping back in time. Lots of classic favorites on the menu. I went with a toasted bacon and tomato sandwich, and it was as good as anything I could have made at home, (and I am a good cook). They were not light on the bacon :) Friendly service, I... More

We were in Napanee & walked the river edge with our grand daughter & enjoyed a fine spring late morning. My wife mentioned it was close to lunch time & why not check out John's. A recommendation that came from our oldest son who had been there for the first time weeks earlier. We entered & were told to sit... More

Bacon and eggs and service was awesome the first time then really awful the next. The waitress never smiles but the owner is a real card.
