Big portions. Enough for lunch and dinner. Wish there more healthier selections. Not one of the cheapest lunches in town.

Slab of homemade meatloaf, slice of swiss and a thick slice of peameal bacon on a toasted kaiser! It came with gravy on the side. Never had anything like it! Was awesome!

This place has been in business, and always busy, since 1958. Waiting times are not bad as the service is always fast and good. They have the best peameal bacon sandwich ever! The portions are huge, if you are not a big eater, go with the GMC special. Our favourite is the Eggs Benedict with Peameal Bacon.

Very friendly environment and the food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. I ordered the eggs benedict. It came with one english muffin toasted and halved, three peameal steaks, two poached eggs, creamy pale hollondaise and fried homefries. Peameal was juicy but I was only able to eat one out of three. Eggs were the best part. Cooked perfectly.... More
