Thank goodness for dinehere! Because of this site, I was able to find this breakfast joint in Coquitlam. You really have to go in with an open mind to keep you from changing your mind once you get there. Yes, it is old. And you can tell it hasn't changed much since the 80's. But I think that adds to the charm of this place. It really took me back to my childhood.
Food is not fantastic, but good quality food at super low prices don't exist anymore. So considering I did not come here expecting a fine dining meal and considering the low prices I paid, I think it deserves the ratings I gave.
Both my sister and I love the corned beef hash here - but to save a trip to the hospital suffering a heart attacked, next time I will request to ease up on the cheese. The first time we came here, we made a huge mistake of over-ordering. At a normal breakfast restaurant, the 3 meals we ordered (corned beef hash, a big breakfast and a small breakfast) would have been barely enough to feed 2 adults and 2 kids. Here, we could have just ordered the 2 meals and still would have walked out holding our bellies to avoid explosion.
Incredible deals here. For example, the "Ed's Breakfast" we ordered was only $6.95 and consisted of: 2 eggs, 2 sausage, 2 bacon, toast, a heaping pile of hashbrowns, AND a plate-sized pancake! Also, we noticed on the specials board that for only $5.95, you can get a Denver Croissant with fries, soup and salad!
So whenever we have breakfast in mind, this is our first stop in the tri-cities area. Also bonus, clean washrooms!
