Friendly service in a cozy and clean dining room. I enjoyed the classic eggs Benny, the eggs were poached perfectly and the hashbrowns were lightly seasoned, delicious. My partner had a breakfast bowl, perfect start to our Saturday:)

Three of us went for lunch and 2 of us were very happy with our selections: 1 piece fish and chips; and the Southwest Chorizo Salad. The other diner was disappointed that the cod burger was ' a bit greasy'. Service was good; dining room is quite small so you might want to make reservations if you are going for dinner.

I had Teresa’s garden burger both times i’ve eaten here and both times very good. Fries were good and comes with a side salad which i thought was good value.

I don’t like writing bad reviews but I feel compelled to say something about this not so great experience we had. We ordered fish & chips. Fish was slightly smelly, very wet and undercooked and the batter was overcooked on the outside but mushy and wet on the inside. It seemed as if they took old freezer fish, battered and deep-fried it frozen. Fries were good, coleslaw was bland and sopping with mayo. Needed some salt, squeeze of lemon...something. We were met with a shrug and poor excuse when we said fish was under cooked. No apology, no offer to re order or re cook or “how can we make this experience better for you. No discount offered or free coffee, nothing. Very disappointing.

Met a few friend for dinner and it took 40 minutes be served. It was a week night and we were the only ones there initially. A salad, a special, and a burger shouldn't take that long. And the server did not come over to explain or apologize for the delay. The food, however, was really good when we finally did get it.
