You should visit here at least once. The decor is a mix between 60s diner, and 80s arcade. The prices are, well, high - there's no way around that. Ideally they would slash the menu in half and really focus on making the staples incredible. Choice anxiety is REAL here, and it's impossible to deliver on 40 different entrees. The chicken burger I received was small for 14 bucks, and didn't even come with fries. I'd much rather buy local, but more than double the cost of A&W that's hard to justify.


Awesome milkshakes, warm delicious cinnamon buns, 50s style diner. Very cool place, friendly staff.

Went in and ordered two burgers and a pizza from ?Mel?, paid interact . Was told to come back in twenty minutes. Came back in twenty minutes. Had to wait 25 more minutes. No big deal. Got my burgers. Was waiting for my pizza. Waiting for my pizza. Waiting for my pizza . Asked ?Mel? where the pizza was. She said I didn?t order a pizza. I said ?the order came to around $80.00 , don?t you think that?s a little expensive for two burgers, two fries?? She said ?where is your receipt? ? I said you walked away when it was printing off. She just said you didn?t order a pizza , just the burgers and fries. And we are closing in 10 minutes.I said check in the back with the cook. She repeated that I didn?t order a pizza. And walked away. I remained standing at the counter till closing time. At closing time the cook came out of the back and asked who?s pizza is this? I said it is my pizza , the cook then handed it to me with ?Mel giving me the stare down. Obviously the food was cold, but the taste was alright. Hate cold fries though. Never had a waitress act so pompous and rude. I?d give the food a 4 star rating, the server a -10 star.

Absolutely delicious. Sorry I didn't get a pic of the food. It was so good I ate it all before I thought of it ?. Ordered Roast Beef Mushroom Melt. It was literally perfect ?. Everything was extremely fresh and tasty. Bonus to the amazing food, was the staff. Super friendly and inviting family owned place. Seems like the staff really enjoy what they do and it shows. Really enjoyed the full experience! Thank you so much!

A friend recommend this spot. We drove over an hour and their food was very good. They have a huge selection of milkshakes that was impossible to resist. Their poutine was to die for. I only wish they had a bigger dessert menu. It's a go again for sure and the hour drive...worth it!

Great experience, very retro and well decorated as such. Ordered a canadian personal pizza, ham and cheese sandwich and a chocolate milkshake. Very satisfied, the pizza was amazing loads of toppings perfectly thin crispy crust. The aandwich was a bit buttery but the ham was real black forest, cheesy and fresh sourdough bread perfectly grilled. Fries were true fresh cut fries. The shakes are made with soft serve for a great consistency not overly thick. Overall true 5 stars for you guys worth every penny.
