Driving thru Williams Lake before most places are open and found this place. The cook spoke to me directly on the phone and listed what I could eat, and made sure when I was served that I knew she'd used different utensils and pans for...More

What an eclectic little restaurant. This is run as a family business and they are so aware of good quality food. Love their breakies and lunches. Just remember - if you want food here come before dinner because it isn't open. A must try.

The staff are always so nice. The food is your basic burgers and sandwiches but good size portions. I love the kitty cat decor.

Had a meeting here and ordered lunch. Food was ok, but nothing special. Most places let you order a bun - less burger or wrap with lettuce instead of the tortilla. Not so easy here, seemed like a very complicated request. A bit outdated overall.
