The first negative review I have ever given, and I am sorry to do so. I have noticed how busy this little restaurant is many times, and decided I really should give it a try. Only a few customers on an early Sunday morning so thought things would progress smoothly. Service was slow and disjointed. Even worse, the food was not up to par. My friend's meal was fine, but I was less than thrilled. Asked for a coffee refill and it didn't come until we were preparing to leave. Safe to say we will not be back.
We arrived for breakfast and there were 3 tables already seated. It took a while before menus were delivered. We ordered and got our coffee and the wait began. It was ridiculous. My coffee was finished and I had to beg for more. no one came to offer it. Food finally came- the plates were hot but the hash browns were Luke warm. Bread was plentiful and delicious. We spent too much time waiting for mediocre food. There were 2 young girls working the tables. who knows what was going on in the back.
Very cute decor and friendly, attentive service. It was a good stop for breakfast after taking the ferry from Vancouver. It was Canada Day so it was very busy in Sidney, yet the service at the Five and Dime was still spot on. We would have rated the restaurant higher, but my husband like more sauce on his benedicts and I like my eggs less cooked. Its very subjective and we should have let them know in advance. I would try it again and I would recommend it to others.
We had breakfast there (or tried to.) They gave us menus and coffee when we arrived. After that, they ignored us for 15 minutes, and there were still others with menus whose orders had not been taken and who had arrived before we did. Then we heard the waitress say to another table that the coffee machine was now broken. We left money on the table for the coffee and left.Clearly, they were unprepared to handle the number of tables they have in their establishment.
We stopped in for a late lunch and looked at their all day breakfast menu page and ordered Eggs Benedict . Mine was traditional and my wife had Mexican flavor ( spice ) . The sauce was just terrible and salty for mine I asked the waitress if the bacon was back bacon and she replied yes but it was just regular bacon , half the plate was full of potatoes deep fried . No imagination no garnish poor presentation . We left feeling ripped off $36 later.
We took a quick stop for lunch, had chicken souvlaki and a Greek salads, very good! Fresh and filling! A bit pricey for 2 chicken skewers 2 sodas a beer and a Smirnoff ice and 2 chick souvlaki plates were $65 tax.
Came in with my family for lunch today - couldn't hear the waitress or anything else for that matter. the music was SO loud. It's a small space and it was just way too loud. Like ridiculously loud. That being the only complaint ... excellent meal topped off with umbrella's;) we had 2 of the blue cheese bacon burgers , served with a huge mound of hot fresh crispy fries , coleslaw and a giant pickle spear! All was excellent. A huge amount of food. My mom ordered the blue cheese hot wing chips, which were good , better off ordering a giant burger for the price. All and all we will definitely be back for the food , service was great,super accommodating to my lil boy .. but really hope it's not so loud , def not a relaxing lunch experience.
