By far, the scariest food/personal experience I have had in my cross-country travels. The food was beyond awful. Everything was bad, even the bacon. As for the "local flavour' we were surrounded by over-all's and stink-eye. The "you ain't from here" vibe was palpable. I...More

If I wanted East Indian food I would have stayed in the lower mainland! The table over from us received a burger as I was perusing the menu. Very dry, sad looking thing. Couldn't eat a thing on the menu!Had to pass this place by😔

For years I frequently stopped at this restaurant for breakfast on trips down to the States. Previous owners did a good job. Sadly, the new owners have decided to produce their meals differently and I find the quality has deteriorated dramatically. It starts with the...More
