What a fantastic place to have a fresh, interesting breakfast or lunch! The were many choices and lots of decisions because everything was so appealing. There was a group of us, so I was able to see the salads, wraps, lobster salad, and breakfast omelette. The lobster salad roll was quite a bargain for $13 with large pieces of meat,... More

We always enjoy breakfast at Foodworks following Sunday morning Mass. The selections are right sized and well prepared. If you are like me order peppers and onions in your hask browns. Makes all the difference in the world. Large sausge links are nicely spiced or the large ham slices are generous. Service is very good and prompt considering to volume.... More

We had brunch here. Service was very efficient. i ordered the Portuguese Omelet which was supposed to have hot Portuguese sausage which i wanted to try. The omelet and the sausage in it was very good but the sausage certainly didn't have any heat which was disappointing. Despite this i enjoyed it and would certainly repeat.

Friendly and welcoming service for breakfast and lunch. Two menus available, one each for breakfast and for lunch, available at all hours of operation. California Chicken wrap included lots of chicken. My spouse enjoyed a basic BLT in this fresh tomato season. Fruit bars, chocolate chip cookies, and scones available for take out.

I went there with my family today. I had the Irish Benny which was great and they had eggs with the usual fixings. Silly thing that was weird was that I think 3 people ready to take our order and the matter of 30 seconds apart. The food was really good compared to what I had there a couple years... More

A great spot for breakfast or an early lunch. They close early especially on Sundays. But the food is good and reasonably priced, although they did just change their menu and increase some prices. Plain old hamburgers are not a tad too pricey if you want anything on them, but still a good buy for breakfast.
