Amazing breakfast here, it gets very busy though so get in early! I had the pancakes with a side of poached eggs. My boyfriend had the breakfast nachos which he said were incredible (be hungry before you go, portion sizes are huge!) Friendly staff

We have been going to The Kettle for as long as I can remember. I have NEVER had a bad dish to this day. Breakfast, lunch AND dinner is ALWAYS good. We especially love the muffins they serve with the breakfast.
