They hv just reopened with a new young owner. Food quality for breakfast was excellent. Hash browns were different than before but very enjoyable. Eggs down nicely and all presented well. Try this for a great breakfast. Staff is taking all needed precautions and tables...socially distanced.More

Two for two, back in town and met up with a bunch of friends that are regulars there. Had another veggie omelette. It was good. Next time I will get the cubes not the hash browns as they were frigid. Company was good and sever...did a great job. She has most of the people’s orders memorized. When she came to me she said sorry don’t know your order. She is forgiven since I have only been there a couple of times. I shall report back next time if she remembers. Sarnia is really limited on breakfast spots so this place is certainly worth checking out.More

Not my first visit here. Might have even reviewed it a few years ago. Got invited there by a group for breakfast early on a Sunday. This group meets here every Sunday. Ordered and Veggie omelet this time and it was really tasty. I expect...to be back again. Must compliment the chef this time. Server was great. She knew the orders for everyone that was a regular.More

We came for a meal after church on Sunday. This place looks old and very outdated. I didn't think the buffet looked very good and it didn't have much food to choose from so we ordered off the menu. Food was quite good and the...service was excellent.More

Everything from the hot entrees to the cold home made salads were excellent...Our waitress was very friendly and attentive, we wish her well on her trip to Greece this week. :<) Friendly atmosphere and one could tell there were many repeat customers as the waitresses...seemed to know most of the patrons that were there. Always a good sign. Thanks for a great dinner folks. The only thing that could have been better were the stuffed green peppers, the rice wasn't cooked enough in them, we will try them again however next time.More

If the parking lot is full have the buffet. If you have no trouble getting a parking spot than order off the menu.

Chicken Caesar wrap was awesome, roast beef sandwich was awesome. The server made me feel like an idiot for asking what type of sauces/dressing they had. And then she took our plates away before we were finished and brought our bill without asking if we...were done. Very weird. I feel like the food is worth it but the server (black hair, 3pm April 14) could use a bit of work in the etiquette department.More

Nick's menu is unchanged for too long but it's busy because of the low prices, decent food & portions. However, this place needs a major face-lift as it's dark stained barnboard & worn carpet etc has become a turn off. Even a coat of lighter...coloured paint & new flooring would be a welcome & overdue spruce up.More
