If you want excellent home style cooking, quality and value, Karl's is the place for you. I had the sliced turkey sandwich with fries. The sandwich was piled high with thick slices of fresh turkey breast. The fries are thick cut and delicious. Give it a try!!!

If you're looking for a place to eat that serves food your Mama used to make, this is it!! (unless your Mama was a bad cook, sorry). Great westerns, french fries, liver and onions, and the SOUP!! The soup is so good. They have daily specials that are well worth going in for.

My wife and I moved to Ottawa 8 months ago and have been searching for the perfect small local diner. We stopped in at Kal's last week for breakfast and it was absolutely delicious. One of the best breakfasts we have ever had. The coffee was served quickly and it was hot and fresh. The eggs benedict and home fries... More

Visited for brunch today (they serve breakfast all day) and ordered Classic Eggs Benny. It was very good! Best I have had in a long time! Home fries are amazing too. The server was friendly, and though it was fairly busy the food came fast. I can't wait to return and try their lunch menu!!

I love the pizza, but for the other dishes I wish there was more food on the plate. I actually had to order 2 plates of food just to get full. Maybe a bit more protein on the plate, would be perfect. I will come back, but it's just a recommendation. It is a great family atmosphere.

Hesitant to order as it was so busy, food seemed to be Coming out constantly so we decided to give Kals breakfast a try (we have only ever had dinner here - BEST PIZZA IN KANATA!!) The servers were all smiling, very fast and efficient! The Spanish omelet was all fresh ingredients and hot enough that when I finished reading... More

My girlfriend and her family came here to grab some dinner. We ordered Nachos along with our main maels. When the food came out, our nachos were burnt and you can tell they had been sitting under the hot table for a while as the temperature was cold and the cheese had gotten hard. We mentioned to the server that... More

Have gone a few times to Kal's and this time went for pizza dinner with my husband. Had the grant crossing pizza which was tasty. A large was enough for 4 people (2 slices each) so we had leftovers. They also have daily specials and Friday night was fish and chips.
