The service could definately use some help as there was one guy taking care of all the tables. The food itself was good, nothing extraordinary, but I did enjoy the pancakes! A little more expensive than other places that serve the same type of food.

The staff was running around very busy as we came in with a lathe hockey group. This has traditional breakfast diner food. It was good and the staff did a good job. Cool thing is they have a drive thru.
