My friend and I have been here twice, both times a Sunday at around 10:30am so we recognize it is prime time for breakfast!
The service has been wonderful both times and the food absolutely delicious. I love the way they cook the Denver omlette and my companion enjoyed his as well. The food was hot, not greasy and very tasty although the hashbrowns took a bit of getting used to.
I would have to say the only drawback to this place is that it has a bit of a cafeteria kind of feel, especially if you are sitting in one of the aisle tables but given how large the place is, it can be understandable.
A lovely place and I hope they do really well as it is nice to have choices in this area of what seems to be endless greasy spoons!
i was expecting phenomenal breakfast, but mind you, i didn't actually have one of their signature pannekoeks so i wouldn't know about those. the Eggs benedict is good, i had the one with smoked salmon. I didn't like how the benedict was served on toast instead of english muffin, the bread was too thin and too crispy. The hash browns are a little greasy, but the green salad adds a nice touch.
Overall, the service was extremely slow, even though my best friend and i went at 9:00 am. They took forever asking for our drink orders, and several requests were not fulfilled (i.e. getting a glass of water, or the bill). So that was sort of frustrating. The family behind us was complaining about that too, so it seemed the whole staff was not very organized. The ambiance is solid but could look little more authentic - i've been to one in North Burnaby/Vancouver and that location was excellent - decor, service, food. So might be a location problem. I'd go back to try their pannekoeks, but maybe not THIS location.
This place is not worth your time or money. Was left standing at door for nearly 10 minutes while the server was busy on her phone. After being sat I waitng another 10 minutes for my drink. My coffee was always left empty. Food was below average with cost far above the norm. Not a good place
