    Perfectly serviceable diner food. Not elevated, not crappy.

    A solid choice for a hungover brunch after a night out downtown. Coffee isn't the best but the food is unique and really good. Love the Mac n Cheese, Grilled Cheese burger and Buttermilk chicken

    Open 24 hours, usually no waiting for a table; food is decent, large portions of greasy breakfast fare, although some healthier options do exist. A little pricey, but worth the 24 h convenience.

    Great comfort food. I had the Buttermilk fried chicken and the West coast burger. The food was SOOOOO good, and the staff were nice and friendly.

    The decor is modern with a very casual ambience. We ❤️ the Buttermilk fried chickenChicken and WafflesPulled Pork Sandwich and the Bacon Truffle Mac n' Cheese. Prices are fairly reasonable.

    I wished I loved it but the truth is everything I've had is so greasy. The service was really friendly and sweet but the food is pretty disappointing.

    Make your own grilled cheese - add whatever you like to their buttery Texas toast. The burger was average, but the breakfast food is all pretty good.

    Portions are quite large.

    Monica Lee · December 26, 2014

    Try the brunch burger for breakfast or the chicken and waffles for dinner. They're good at sweet and savory dishes.

    Fatema Hoque · October 12, 2014

    Fried chicken.

    AVOID at all costs!!! Extremely long wait, could squeeze the grease out of my sandwich, full of white trash drunks and rude staff, $$$$$$$$ .

    It's difficult to believe, but the Guinness Shake is a must-try. Don't let the sound of it put you off.

    Grilled Cheese sandwich burger will leave you full for the rest of the day but worth it! But found service to be slow, so don't go when you're REALLY hungry!

    Thumbs up for their mac & cheese!:)

  • @gracecheung604! BURGERS!

    @gracecheung604 · September 12, 2013
  • Liz T.

    Good decor. Terrible food. The salad dressings were overly vinegary and the chicken completely dry. The calamari breading was so salty it was inedible. :(

    Liz Teodorini · July 21, 2013
  • TOTweetFest

    BLT w/ ciabatta bread - more than enough bacon. Poutine good too. Service was quick. Good-sized portions.

    TOTweetFest · July 8, 2013

    Breakfast is served!

    Ted Hart · June 29, 2013

    Don't take debit and won't run it as a credit card.

    Server was awesome, good waffle however the compote and lemon creme were amazing. My favourite jam on the tables (huge points)

    Dee H · April 14, 2013

    Double grilled cheese sandwich burger. Do it.

    Jerry Aulenbach · April 9, 2013

    Mac and cheese is awesome! Onion rings were also good! Portions are huge so I recommend sharing.

    "The Fat American" isn't just insulting, it's crap. Don't be fooled by that alluring malty aroma; these are the driest pancakes you'll ever eat.

    Andrew Currie · November 29, 2012
  • Annuh S.

    Buttermilk fried chicken. No questions.

    Annuh Strange · November 26, 2012
  • Ian L.

    Had another Turkey Burger; the "Deep South" with flavorful pulled pork and crispy onions. Still big and juicy, and better without cheese. Fries were fine. Overall meal hit the spot. Still pricey

    Ian Leung · November 26, 2012

    Turkey Brie sammy was totally saturated in olive oil. Took an hour and 45 mins to get it. Filled with obnoxious club rats. A definite miss!

    Sadie W · November 25, 2012
  • Ian L.

    Turkey burger was good..big, juicy and tasty. Bit too cheesy. Onion rings were good, kind of chicken fried - could have used a few more. Not bad overall, but expensive for $20

    Ian Leung · November 11, 2012
  • Collin N.

    Shitty service, pretty decent food.

    Donut Burger - not as sweet as you'd have imagined. Grilled Cheese Burger, as insane as it sounds. Read more

    Great menu! The only "negative" is that the portions are HUGE and you can never finish what you just paid for. That's why I just always order the alcohol or coffee.

    CJB · September 5, 2012
  • Nathan A.

    Ok, the special still works after 1am, just got free crab cakes, be nice to the server and tip well.

    Nathan Aragon · August 12, 2012

    Sweet, free appetizer

    Shera Everett Singh · May 5, 2012
  • Izabela M.

    The option to have your burger on a bun OR wrapped in lettuce is something I wish more establishments offered. Great low-carb alternative because eating a burger with your hands is a sacred ritual. :)

    Izabela M · March 22, 2012
  • Shannon S.

    The fried chicken is my new fav menu item. It's super yummy, but I get it with spinach rather than the cheesy mashed potatoes.
