I understand why this is one of the most popular restaurants in Windsor. Prices are amazing and food was good. My rainbow trout was perfectly cooked. I love how the coffees are at their original 50Cent price too.

We went for early dinner and it was great. Had lasagna and it was wonderful. Prices are very reasonable and service was fast and friendly. Only weak spot was desert. Not made in house and just average.
