Meat was very salty and the spices used did not agree with our digestive system.
Therefore my wife was no able to finish her dinner.
The dinner was served with potatoes - there was an overabundance of potatoes.
My plate had about 20 (small) potatoes and unfortunately they were not all that tasty.
We enjoyed the coleslaw, though.

Heartland Cafe
Responded on March 21, 2021

Will, This is so sad to read. We want all of our guests to enjoy their meals and would have happily replaced your meal with one more suitable for you. We know everyone has different tastes, whereas for one person it may be too bland for another it could be too salty and this is not right or wrong, but preference. We would love to welcome you back and find a meal you would both love. Please feel free to contact us directly at social1@heartlandcafe.ca

Thank you Evelyn, The patio has always been on a FCFS basis as we cannot always say when mother nature will agree and allow us to open it, Best time to snag a table is generally around 11:30 so we hope we will see you then!

Friendly greeting at the door. Waitress warmly greeted us and took drink orders. Gave us a respectable amount of time to decide on meal choice.
Checked back on drinks. Food arrived in a timely manner. Waitress checked after a few minutes that food was satisfactory.
Did not feel rushed, server was polite and friendly. Have eaten there before and will definitely return again!

I love this place. The food is great and fresh and we get out of the City for a drive which I love. There does however, seem to be either inhouse disorganization or a shortness of staff. The staff was pleasant, but there was no one at the front to coordinate and my family who arrived early waited 25 minutes without anyone coming to the table. I like the relaxed feel of the place, but I believe they could work on their attentiveness.

Heartland Cafe

Thank you for this note Sparky, All of the new changes has really meant our time and attention is diversified much more than before and with our limited team we know it can be a challenge to further divide the time so we appreciate your understanding!! We would love to welcome you back for a different experience so you could see what we normally have for our guests, we know that this has been a challenge for all so we appreciate your kindness.
