For a diner, this is a good one. We came back to Mrs V's recently after being away for a bit. They went through a change of ownership and the it reverted back to the original owner (Mrs V) and restaurant name. Much of the original staff is there. The food is tasty and it is generally a very reliable diner experience. Clean. Comfortable enough. Friendly staff.

Recently had a quiet dinner at Mrs. Vs and was quite disappointed in the quality of the food. My fish dish which had three kinds of fish was simultaneously overlooked and undercooked. Vegetables nothing to write home about and bread was stale.

My husband had Pork chops which were cooked well but the flavour was uninspiring.

But staff were friendly. I understand it's under new management so hopefully it will come up to snuff.

Came here in June 2016 for breakfast with some of my family. This restaurant has changed hands and is now called Rivers Cafe. Mrs. V. sold it, and most, but not all, employees have left. The food is still good - basic and a typical diner. Light and bright inside and has gotten a makeover. I will eat there again.

I have been to Mrs V's many times - but note that the ownership recently changed and renovated the place, and it is now called River Cafe. Some of the staff remains, but many are gone. Food is good and reasonably priced. Never had a bad meal here.
