Read about this place on TripAdvisor and I was passing through Lindsay so I arranged to meet a friend there. We were both pleasantly surprised. The server was fantastic. She was quick and friendly. The food was quite good and the price reasonable. It had a true small town atmosphere. From the location and appearance you might not stop in... More

We dined here for lunch. Crowded and noisy. Every time the door opened we received a huge blast of cold air even though we were seated way inside from the door. That said, the food was delicious, my fish and chips were well seasoned, the batter crisp and not greasy. My friend's egg benedict was indeed one of the best... More

Wow, what a great breakfast. We ordered the same thing. Eggs benny in baked potato with bacon and lots and lots of fruit. Everything was delicious. Great selections for breakfast. Service was very good and friendly. Can't wait to return. Thank you.

This is a wonderful local eatery with "home style cooking". We love both breakfast and lunch there with generous portions and well prepared food. Pies too are great. Have a cushion under your seat so that you can look over the meringue on a lemon pie. We usually forget that we should split a sandwich and have a soup. That... More

Went to this place in the mid- 00s and was blown away. So much so that a decade later I brought my wife here to give it a shot, if only to see if it was as amazeballs as I recalled. The short answer- yes it was. The long answer- Holy moly this is the best breakfast place i've ever... More

We have been a customer for over 20 years and have never had a bad experience. The food is always piping hot and the service is great. Staff are always friendly and pleasant. It is like eating a home cooked meal and the prices are very reasonable. This restaurant is number 1 because it deserves to be.
