We had a nice quiet breakfast watching traffic in Whitney go by. Good food like you'd get at home. Looks like old gas station. Average everything to eat. Poor coffee.

Brings you back in time with the milk dispenser , milkshake machine,lunch bar turning stools. Decor a little dated but clean and inviting. Staff are very friendly quick service.BLT could be better using thicker slices of turkey. Good quality food for the price.

The only restaurant in Whitney that is open early for breakfast. The food was good and the service was as well. There is a gas station and a small convenience store attached.

I have been here a few times for breakfast and it never lets me down. Excellent customer service and a hearty breakfast large enough to keep you driving for a few hours. Conveniently located only 10 minutes from east gate Algonquin Park.

While staying in town this was a great breakfast option. Service was really friendly and helpful. The breakfast was basic but great. Definitely the best restaurant option in the village.

Thank Thomas K
