We liked this place so much we went twice. Good Eggs Benedict. Friendly service, not too expensive, and non-pretentious.

Stopped in for lunch after a snowshoe. Great coffee, super friendly staff and non-pretentious atmosphere- what more do you want. Clubhouse was awesome, and best of all, they put malt vinegar on the fries without you asking! Perfect......

Nothing like an ice-cold coke with a flat top grilled burger topped with bacon, cheese, and a fried egg. All this served with a smile in the cozy environment of an old style diner, complete with memorabilia on the walls, stools and high tops. Not much room with plenty of local fans, expect to wait a little bit to get... More

Hi Rae Lynn C, Thanks for your review. I'm not sure why it took an hour but it could have been traffic and it also could have been busy in the kitchen (Saturday and Sundays tend to be really busy). We hope to see you again. Cheers, The Diner Gang More

Located in Creekside, this place offers super fast service and fantastic food. Had the Westcoast Benny and it was awesome, probably the best Benny I have ever had. Honestly can't remember what my hubby ordered but he loved it too. The service was really quick with great happy staff to boot. Make sure you abide by the "house rules". Very... More

Love this place for everything about it. It has remained the same over all these years and are still as awesome as I remember the first time coming here. I come here for breakfast/brunch. Servings are huge and food tastes really good.
