A favourite with the locals, you won't mind having to wait for a table at this tiny Diner. Repeat customers are greeted like old friends. Ample breakfast portions of Diner standards and delicious twists on old favourites. Try the Greek wrap!

Found this excellent breakfast spot by Googling, "Best breakfast location in Niagara Falls", and our family were very impressed. This is a family owned and run restaurant who really know how to fill their patrons bellies with a truly huge home cooked breakfast. Thank Dena,...More

Just happened upon this small family restaurant and what a find! The meals are truly homemade style... hash browns made from boiled potatoes, ham cut from the bone. Our two eggs and hash browns could hardly be seen with all the extras... sauteed whole mushrooms,...More
