"This diner is amazing. We were in Stratford for a ball tournament and made a reservation for the whole team, plus parents and siblings. 40+ people and they were prepared. Great food, great service, great prices. This place really knows how to handle a large group. To any sports teams out there who end up in Stratford this is the place to go. Please make sure you give them the courtesy and call in advanced so they are prepared for your group. 5 stars isn't enough for how you all handled our group."

"My absolute favorite breakfast in Stratford. Very friendly staff and the food is always amazing. They have the best gluten free toast!"

"We went in for lunch and had the fish and chips... It was delicious! They serve very large portions at very affordable prices. When leaving, we browsed the cabinet at the front door where they displayed several kinds of butter tarts. The food was so good, the next day we went in for breakfast which was also delicious, well made and reasonably priced. The coffee was a bit strong but that's the worst that I can say. Before leaving, this time we decided to grab some butter tarts which were $15 for half a dozen... They are the best butter tarts around! Totally worth every penny! The next time we are traveling in or through Stratford Ontario, we will definitely stop in again!"

"On behalf of Chapter 46, Canadian Motorycyle Cruisers, we wish to thank you and your staff for such fantastic and quick service on Sunday. Having 22 people come in without notice and having us all served and fed within minutes, is in our books, unbelieveable great service. Once again, thank you."
