Lunch with Mom while in BC for a holiday and had a fish burger. Perfect amount of crunch on panco breading and cole slaw in the fresh bun. Fresh salad greens as well. Mom had bacon cheddar burger and loved it. When back to Duncan we will be back!

Go hungry or prepare to share as the portions are HUGE! Food is always good, staff are friendly, location is clean & prices are fantastic! Only downfall is the small parking lot & neighborhood.

A group of 7 for a work dinner. Four of us had steak which was very good. Two had curry which was a tasty looking large portion. There were ribs on the special board, but the last portions were ordered before us. Very busy place with friendly service and good home style cooking.

The food is amazing, good value and always consistent. The wait staff are friendly and fast and always make sure that you are well taken care of. We are regulars and definitely one of our favourite places for breakfast!

There are not many places that a big family with young children can go to enjoy a delicious meal & feel so welcome throughout the whole stay. The customer service here is awesome, the servers are great!! Thank you for being so respectful & welcoming every single time we go, as a big family... We appreciate it :D

We went to Duncan for the evening & as a family of 7 (1 temp in a wheelchair) we stopped to have dinner. This was my families first time there and they loved it, service was A+! The waitress was very accommodating to our family, we will definitely be going back on our next travels.

Don't like the 'greasy spoon attached to a motel' exterior fool you. This restaurant is a gem for a solid Canadian breakfast. Warm, welcoming, interesting and cheerful interior. Good service. Good food. We think it's family run, and always enjoy breakfast there. We'll go back again.

Consistently good meals with big portions. Was there several times recently and I was quite impressed. An easily overlooked restaurant with pleasant staff and clean facility. Will go back again!
