If you are looking for a great breakfast place and you are in Lindsay Ontario or surroundings, this is the place. This is number one for great breakfasts and great service! On this last visit, we tried "the Big Ham" breakfast and it was just as described...a whopping big piece (pieces) of ham off the leg bone...delicious! This comes with... More

Fantastic Diner where you can get a delcious meal at a decent price. They have a variety of choices for the allergic/conscience eater. It's always busy.. between the regulars, the church-goers and being "the place to eat" you're lucky if you can beat the rush or the 20 min wait time.

Service was excellent. I ordered off of the senior menu and thought that when they brought my pancakes they had made a mistake. Not. Portion size was very good. Coffee was very good. Restaurant was busy. The staff were very friendly and efficient. We will return. Thank you.

There would be no reason to give this restaurant anything less than 5 Stars. Good home cooked food served promptly and courteously. A friendly dinner and a pleasure to visit !

Very popular place, judging by the lines on a Sunday morning. When we were finally seated & served, I understand why! Great variety, food was delicious, massive servings! Coffee was pretty good too! We enjoyed the trivia boxes on the tables. Staff were super-friendly. Will definitely visit next time we're in town! Oh, and thanks for the "Saint Dave's Virgin"... More

Five of us stopped in for breakfast after Church on Sunday. We were warmly greeted, and seated in Dave's "new" establishment.... it's spacious, and bright. The Breakfast Specials are a sure-fire success, and I enjoyed mine tremendously. Others at our table loved their breakfasts, too. Our Server was Karina, and she was friendly, fast, and helpful, and was super-good at... More

Thank you Dave and Mariska for offering your family restaurant for our cousins, aunts and uncles lunches. Fourteen of us gathered in October, on a busy Saturday, for lunch. It did not rattle your staff at all, and we were allowed lots of time to visit, our food was excellent, and the waitresses very attentive, making sure we had lots... More

Have visited a few times now since they opened the new place and is a consistent breakfast winner. Almost like home made breakfast. Sometimes the wait can get annoying but usually worth it. I usually have bacon, eggs, and home fries at this place. I'd love sausages but don't like either of the two options they offer. They say famous... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and both your positive and construtive comments. Sorry to hear that neither the Farmers sausage or the breakfast links are to your liking. Since opening 8 years ago we have tried various brands and the ones we currently offer seem to please most folks. As for the "Famous" Hash, we are... More
