Friend likes this place and wanted to bring me here. We had the fish and chips. One of their standard offerings. Fish was good but the fries were over cooked and brown, not golden. Cole slaw was different from others I have had elsewhere. No...More

We were looking for a small diner for some food while on a bike trip through Stratford. Found this place and was pleasantly surprised. I like the old school decor and the food was quite good. The buttertart was stupidly tasty. It made no sense...More
