I regularly visit this establishment as they have great service, the staff is very friendly. Take out is available. I often order the club house sandwich, haddock diner and the baked beans. The fish and chips have a very nice light batter.

Looking for a good place to eat and came across this cafe. It's not too big but manageable. Food is excellent. I had the fish bits which are a pretty good size. My friend had the melt in your mouth fish. The desserts are delicious especially the coconut cream pie. If you find yourself in Windsor you must try this... More

Plenty of vegetables provided with meals with a fresh bun. I had two pieces of pan fried haddock that tasted excellent. For dessert, I had apple pie with ice cream but the peanut butter pie that my wife has even yummier.

Lisa's cafe was recommended to us by a lady at the hockey museum. She said that if we were looking for good home cooking Lisa's cafe was the place to eat. She was definitely right. Didn't get a picture of our meals.We had the lunch combo, a choice of sandwich with cup of soup and fries. Homemade pies etc. Another... More

We have eaten here many times and always come away full and with a smile on our face. Portion sizes are great and the prices are too. I can't tell you what is best to order as all the items on the menu are good. The only must to try is the Peanut Butter Pie... Oh My Goodness... You won't... More

From owner, to kitchen crew to waitresses this is a place you can count on. Somewhat simple but superbly cooked menu. Soups, seafood and desserts top notch. The place folks go for special outings. So popular you often have to wait For a table.

Menu is similar to everywhere else....sandwiches, burgers etc....food was good.

Took the family here after a day at Upper Clements Park. What a great selection and you can't beat the prices. Oh my goodness the homemade pie was amazing...yes, you read that right homemade pie of many varieties (I think there was 5+ types). I may take a trip there from Halifax just for the pie! We are definitely going... More
