This place is popular with seniors but everyone appreciates good food for a reasonable price! Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner with an extensive menu and daily specials for an even better price. You will appreciate the speedy service and attention to cleanliness; they not only clean the tables after each meal but the seats as well! This is worth... More

We came here twice over CHRISTMAS mainly because of its central location and very friendly staff. They serve an all day breakfast and both times we were in there there seemed to be many regular customers. This is standard diner fare and you won't go away hungry

When you visit a place that is always this crowded it only means one thing and one thing only: Good food and reasonable price = value. Worth visiting

I've been to this place many times and although I enjoy the food for the past few times that I've been I found the service to be slow. I finish my cup of coffee wanting to have more and wait half an hour and no one bothers to come over and ask if I want more coffee and some other... More

The diner is busy. The staff are friendly, and work very hard. The food quality is consistently very good. The menu is huge and should be revised. I would recommend the owners have someone daily acting as host and manage seating. Another time saver would be to have bus person full time. Overall my go to place for breakfast and... More

We ALWAYS eat here as a family because it's the first place the kids vote for - even if we are across town! :p Breakfast is always super busy on wkends so expect a wait unless you come VERY early. We've tried almost everything on the menu and have NEVER been disappointed! But my favorite is, and and always will... More

This is one of those restaurants where they are really happy to have you come to their place. Our waitress was as skilled as she was beautiful, and was working hard while pregnant. My friend and I had stopped in for breakfast which was good decent food for a fair value. This place is worth checking out.

I have been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner many times. Their food is delicious and the service is great. Nice atmosphere. For breakfast I have the regular bacon and eggs and they are always good tasting. The coffee is very, very good. They give you a little container of brown beans, which is quite good. I've had the senior's... More

Having attended McMaster, I can truly say it's the best diner in Hamilton and Burlington. EXTENSIVE (but not overwhelming) menu (including breakfast, lunch, burgers, pasta and dinner), amazing prices and fresh ingredients. Best diner to go to when you don't quite know what you feel like because they do everything right! My go-to is their eggs benny which comes with... More
