Effie's Place takes pride in the food they serve and the atmosphere in which they serve it. They serve all three meals, but so far we have nay been there for breakfast. I strongly recommend the blueberry pancakes with REAL maple syrup.

Low-key restaurant with full variety of traditional home-cooked meals. Nice selection of desserts. Like a diner but with table seating. On-site or on-street parking.

I visited this popular diner-type restaurant for the first time. I went on a snowy morning for breakfast. What a lovely place. Neat and clean. Exceptionally friendly and efficient staff. I was treated like an old friend and long time regular. The service was incredibly...More
