    Skip the egg sandwiches, it's just egg on bread. The BLAT was great though and the potatoes are a must!

    Huge sandwiches. I prefer the corned beef over the roast beef. Thought the roast beef was a little dry. Overall, an awesome place for piled high sammies. Great service too.

    French toast was yummy. There's non-spiked and spiked milkshakes on opposite sides of the menu, so be sure to specify which you want.

    Best French toast in the city. The choc-chip, banana and bacon pancakes aren't bad either. Also has a vending machine where you can get a branded pen for 25cent :)
