I was in Lindsay Ontario on personal business and called a couple of friends to arrange a breakfast get together. One of them suggested Dave's on Hwy 35 south of 7. Our server was excellent. She was fast, friendly and polite. She had a great sense of humour and made a very good breakfast even better. This was my first... More

My husband and I had lunch there. The service was so friendly so warm I have rarely experienced. The menu had so many choices! I am gluten free and I was so excited that I had great choices and the staff was so knowledgeable! I had a Reuben sandwich and my husband had a clubhouse. We both thought they were... More

Visited yesterday with my mom. Their daily "hash" is interesting. Noticed ample portions going to tables. Very satisfying.

If you are looking for a great breakfast place and you are in Lindsay Ontario or surroundings, this is the place. This is number one for great breakfasts and great service! On this last visit, we tried "the Big Ham" breakfast and it was just as described...a whopping big piece (pieces) of ham off the leg bone...delicious! This comes with... More

Fantastic Diner where you can get a delcious meal at a decent price. They have a variety of choices for the allergic/conscience eater. It's always busy.. between the regulars, the church-goers and being "the place to eat" you're lucky if you can beat the rush or the 20 min wait time.

Service was excellent. I ordered off of the senior menu and thought that when they brought my pancakes they had made a mistake. Not. Portion size was very good. Coffee was very good. Restaurant was busy. The staff were very friendly and efficient. We will return. Thank you.
