Customer's reviews..
oh man, place is awesome! and i just had the best breakfast wrap of my life ?? no complaints other than yall need a panini press for those wraps ??? aha. will be coming back with my son, hands down. awesome service and they were busy too!
Was just in town staying at the Holiday Inn across the street and boy was I glad I chose this local joint. Friendly welcome with the chef (Johnny?) and some banter. Got the pastrami sandwich which came with a nice dill pickle to complement the flavours. Honestly one of the best pastrami sandwiches I’ve ever had; tender, juicy and seasoned perfectly to go with the mustard and bread. Wish I got a second order and I had it to go! Still maintained its freshness. Sorry, should’ve took a picture but I devoured it.

Sunset Grill $$
Fairview Mall A, 285 Geneva St f10, St. Catharines - L2N 2G1

Customer's reviews..
Great family atmosphere, so many options! Tasty food and fabulous service.
Went in on Victoria Day since it was one of the few restaurants open. Wifi is listed as free all over the restaurant, but it is password protected.For drinks my wife ordered a Cesar and I ordered a coke. She said the Cesar was GREAT, while my coke arrived in a can. It wasn't a big deal, but I do wish the menu clearly stated it was a can instead of fountain.My wife ordered the BLT and I ordered the bacon cheddar burger (I forget the name). The food took 45 min to arrive, to which the waitress said it was because a burger takes a long time to cook.The BLT was generous with the bacon, but the bread was incredibly dry. The burger was cooked to a hockey puck, but very generous on the toppings as well. The homefries that came with both meals was cooked properly, but had no seasoning or flavor.The waitress was inattentive and impolite. Our drinks ran out as our food arrived, but she made no attempt to offer water or additional drinks. We had to waive her down to ask for waters later, to which she responded "yea" and nothing else. Honestly she seemed intent on closing down the restaurant early due to the holiday rather than serving the few tables seated.Long story short, very unimpressed. Only giving it 2 stars instead of 1 because of the Cesar, which we could go to a bar and get for the same quality and price.

Cora Breakfast and Lunch $$
210 Glendale Ave, St. Catharines - L2T 3Y6
Cuisines: Breakfast
Customer's reviews..
Disappointing!!! Food was cold... Went for the promotion $1 kids menu. We were told that it would be $1 with an adult purchase, but apparently it does not include the Halloween themed one, despite the fact that the price is the same as regular kids menu items. The server never told us when we ordered it... Only found out when paying the bill.First time dining out since the pandemic, definitely not a good experience...
The service was amazing, the food was amazing & the ambiance was quite fun! Also, the menu is very detailed and the portions are perfect- there’s something for everyone here!

Stacked Pancake & Breakfast House St. Catharines $$
286 Bunting Rd, St. Catharines - L2M 7S5
Cuisines: Breakfast Burgers Poutineries
Customer's reviews..
First time there, was very happy with the service and food. Definitely will be back
I don’t go on a weekday, weekends usually best, being on vacation though why not? The food was great, but for me service is just as important, I am paying for food I could really make at home, but a treat to be cooked for and served. I see these great reviews for someone named Jade, and finally got to meet her. Amazing smile, super attentive, and very personable. She has been there for quite some time so surprised I don’t see her more often when I come. There is a lot of staff turnover so you’d think you’d have your top servers working more……Food is great, but do yourself a favour, ask to sit in Jades section, you won’t be disappointed, when the cost of everything is going up, eating out should be worth it!!!!

Lester D's Reel Diner $
144 Hartzel Rd, St. Catharines - L2P 1G4
Cuisines: Breakfast
Customer's reviews..
Service was great and courteous, food took a little longer to come out (but place was jam packed), but the movie-centric decor and overall experience was lively and cute. There was always something new or interesting to catch your interest - eg fun facts or movie quotes.The diner style food was exactly what we were looking for that day. Big portions and delicious.Tip: if you order the mozza stick grilled cheese sandwich, eat it quick! Doesnt taste as good when its cooled down and no longer stringy cheese.French toast burger - the french toast was good, the burger patty was good, but together, the combo didnt work for us lol.Will come back but to try other things on their menu ?Ps. The gravy was phenomenal!
This establishment is the pride of St.Catharines. Distinctly unique with a great menu of high-quality food options at reasonable prices. Movie buffs will love it here, something is always on the TVs and there is trivia and memorabilia everywhere. Do not miss the opportunity to stop in here - the sandwiches and fish are especially top notch.

Worst breakfast experience I have ever had. Waited over an hour to get our food and it was awful. Not sure how a breakfast place can screw up scrambled eggs but they did. For anyone reading this please go somewhere else!!!!

Cute place with great food! Their dalgona coffee is amazing. The owners are also super nice and provide friendly service. Would highly recommend stopping by if you are in the area.
Mom donuts is a great little diner. They have a helpful friendly staff and a comfortable atmosphere. I myself have been coming here for over 20 years. All the food on the menu is always satisfying delicious and the price is right for the portions. I would suggest to anybody they should come here with there family and friends and try the food they'll love it just like I do.☯️???? ?

Excellent service and very good food prepared to my specific requirements.
Typical mainstream breakfast cafe. Enjoyed the food. Where they really stood out is the gluten free bread! Uses bread from edible options next to them which is hands down the best gluten free option I've found! Love it

Joney R's Eatery
2 Dunlop Dr, St. Catharines - L2R 1A2
Cuisines: Breakfast
Customer's reviews..
had an opportunity to hold our second meeting past weekend with their brunch buffet for a group of 20 people. everybody enjoyed the combination of Indian food and continental favourites. Had never expected to have Butter Chicken, Dal Tadka, Saag, Cholley and rice with meat balls and so on. Gulab Jamun was delicious with custard pudding. worth on Sunday afternoon.
My wife and I had a great time at Joney’s! She ordered over medium eggs that came out perfect and the server literally ran to get me jam. Couldn’t have been happier with the service, quality or price.
