Dinner is available Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with Happy Hour and nightly specials!


Serving Brunch 7 days a week starting at 10AM on Weekdays and 9AM on Weekends.


We offer a fresh perspective on the classic neighbourhood eatery, throwing back to a simpler, more wholesome time when eating out was fun, approachable and most importantly, accessible. It brings patrons back to the mid-twentieth century – an era defined by a feel-good, optimistic mentality that influenced popular culture and food. Think Leave it to Beaver, Superbad, and Saved By The Bell came together in the most epic way possible.

    Visiting from NOTL. I was disappointed to find that an 18% gratuity was already included in the charges, which I wasn't aware of. As a result, I gave an additional 18% tip without knowing. When I realized this and questioned the staff, the waiter apologized and refunded the initial 18% gratuity of $27 instead of the $36 tip I had given, which was higher because it was calculated from the total amount including food, tax, and the already added 18% gratuity. This felt dishonest, regardless of the restaurant's reputation on BlogTO. I won't be going back.

    Came for brunch with friends on a Saturday and had the best service from Yvonne! She was so attentive and quick. Food was pretty decent (really loved the pancakes!). At the end of our meal I accidentally left my Invisalign folded in a napkin (smh, my bad) which was thrown out by accident. 2 of the staff actually found it for me even though they didn’t have to. Awesome people at this establishment!

    The food was good! The waiter was quite rude though, he was impatient and acting like he was bothered by serving customers.

    Disappointed with the service this time. Server himself was lovely but think perhaps our order was forgotten to be entered. We waited for an hour to receive our food despite the larger table beside us sitting down after we had already ordered. They had almost finished by the time our food arrived. The avo Benny was just mediocre. Would not return for a savory brunch but do have to admit I still love their pancakes!
