    Great brunch spot with all kinds of delicious breakfast and lunch options. Excellent coffee drinks, full bar, and seasonal outdoor tables make this a boozy brunch option. And it's reasonably priced.

    Don't fear! The sugar for your coffee is in the unmarked hot sauce bottle. :) Also, the staff is super friendly, and free Wi-Fi is available. Sadly, the wifi signal is very spotty.

    LOVE Janik's. Very straight-forward, tasty food. I've had the waffle, tuna melt, biscuits and gravy, and french toast, all were SUPES tasty. :]] add choco chips to your waflle, nom.

    The chicken lime soup is soooo tasty! Definitely a must order during the winter (or for delivery as a hangover cure)

    Ask for a coffee to go, free of charge if you had a coffee with your meal!

    Cosy restaurant, but be weary of the corner seat by the register. You may not actually get prompt service there.

    Janik's may have the friendliest owners and staff of any cafe in the city. Ask them how their day is going.

    Diet sized portions. Just enough to satisfy my craving for comfort food - steak and eggs plus hash browns (see pic) - and not ruin my medically-ordered diet.

    Food is pretty good and prices are decent. However, I’ve been a couple times on weekends and service has always been slow.

    If you must do Do-Division fest, duck in here for better beer, better bathrooms, and shelter from the inevitable summer thunderstorm.
