KW and I went to see his daughter participate in a half marathon. The girls were looking for breakfast after the race. I found this place which serves breakfast all day - BINGO! We were seated after a very short wait. This place is popular and packed. The service is very efficient, which make this place run like a well... More

Very good poutine gravy, friendly service. I can't speak to the full menu, as I can't eat cheese, but the fries and gravy were delicious and the club sandwich was well done.

Not a typo, as a visit to Chez Ben will add pounds to your frame. Not only do they have poutine but 8 different varieties!! They were able to accommodate a party of nine when we arrived but shortly after 10 the lines began. Great place, reasonably priced with a good strong coffee. Try the classic poutine.

When you walk into Chez Ben most mornings it is like walking into a small french country diner. The main dining room is usually filled with primarily french speaking patrons. And you can usually count on seeing a familiar face in the crowd since this is a favorite stomping ground for the locals. The menu is creative with a mixture... More

Try their Breakfast Poutine....very hearty and filling. We go very early in the morning and you don't have to wait for a table and the service is quick and pleasant.

Reminds me of small diners in Montreal. Had some nice poutine, they have a variety of ways of preparing it, I went with the traditional style.

I've eaten at Chez Ben several times. While their American food is fine (pretty much like that you'd fine in any diner), I go for the Quebecois food, which I don't find elsewhere. The food has always been good, and the service has been attentive and pretty quick. Pricing is about average / as expected. They seem to have a... More

There are also some stools at a counter for dining as well as the tables and a few booths. 1. First employee out of the kitchen was a very young man who just bolted over to the... More
