We love this place. We love breakfast. See menu photos for the seemingly endless varieties of possible breakfasts. Decently priced. Were else can you get really good corned beef with eggs and home fries for breakfast? The quality of the food is top, the friendly staff is consistent; instead of constantly changing, and many of the dishes have a distinct... More

My husband and I were looking for a restaurant that wasn't a 'fast food' breakfast (driving from the Toronto airport on our way through Cobourg), and came across this little plaza restaurant called, "Home Plate" which was wonderful! Not only was the breakfast absolutely delicious, but the waitress (her husband is the cook) got every single thing cooked perfectly from... More

Visited for the first time with a few family members and bought a turkey club sandwich, which I was totally unimpressed by. The bread was thin and flimsy, the turkey ice cold/dry/stringy and the homefries were just average. For almost $50.00 for three people, it just wasn't worth it.

The first visit was for breakfast a few months ago. The breakfast was super and portions large. Today we stopped for lunch. We each had the soup/sandwich combo. One sandwich was homemade corned beef that was melting in your mouth tender. The other was roast beef on a bun with homemade BBQ sauce. Felisha! Now the soup was chicken, broccoli... More

Standard fare breakfast. I added the pierogies with sour cream and fried onions, which took the meal up a notch or two. Our server was pleasant and attentive, and the prices were reasonable. It's not fancy, but the portion sizes were huge and I left the table feeling VERY full indeed!

Sorry i know it's tough to make a buck in this business... More
