Great food in a family style restaurant. The owners have a way that makes you feel welcome. My parents love their fish and chips and my favourite is the club sandwich. Once again the owner of the restaurant greeted us happily, and we had a great meal.

Great breakfast here. Well cooked bacon, real potatoes for home fries but fried up crispy with delicious spices. Hands down best coffee from a breakfast restaurant.

Amazing place. Great BLT sandwich. Amazing home made soup. Even better are the owners are there servicing their guests. It?s the passion that goes in to the food and the wonderful service that makes this place exceed a 5 star review. Thanks guys.

Food is cheap and tasty. Busy place, with limited seating. The one waitress was not very nice or welcoming unfortunately but maybe she was just having a bad day.

I met a friend there for coffee on March 15/22. Mike, the owner, was very kind, friendly and didn?t push us to order anything but our coffee(which was really good with the 18% cream). The Checkerboard is very similar to ?Cheers? where the regulars were clearly known by Mike and staff. The restaurant was clean, the staff were friendly and my friend and I have already booked a time to meet there again soon. We will try the food (which looked and smelled really good) in our next visit.

Before I had even entered the building, I was already receiving excellent service at Checkerboard. My server eagerly welcomed me at the door and was incredibly friendly, getting me seated and making me feel very at home for my entire experience. The diner's design made me feel like I was visiting family, and my server's attitude reinforced that. Server said goodbye to each individual person who left and welcomed each individual person in, knowing all regulars by name. Made great conversation that made for a warm atmosphere. Server was very confident about his cooking abilities which gave me high hopes for the food, and those hopes were met easily. My pancakes were perfectly crisped on the outside and fluffy on the inside, the flavour was great. After eating, the server made it clear that I was welcome to stay for as long as I'd like and we chatted about the area. Even more, when I walked past the Checkerboard later in the day, I was met with recognition and the same friendly service. After just one trip, I already feel like family and I will absolutely be coming back soon. The best breakfast in Kitchener - don't miss this one.

This restaurant is a gem. Comfort food. Simple decor. Affordable. For those of us who grew up in era of family restaurants this place nails something that hipster hangouts cannot. It is also nestled in the timeless and wonderful Belmont Village. I will be back and recommend this place to others.
