Leonard’s Family Restaurant, 220 Laird Dr.

2 stars (out of 5)

Walk in, and this place screams “Family Restaurant” (and has been screaming it for at least 40 years)! The decor is uninspired, lacking any noticeable character. The location is off the beaten track, but has it’s own small parking lot.

My breakfast special of 2 eggs over easy, brown toast, “home fries” and coffee was forgettable. Their version of a home fry is a large potato wedge deep fried like a jumbo french fry. It was well cooked and tasty, but isn’t really what most people consider a home fry. Imagine that on a plate, devoid of spices (paprika, pepper) or onions with two fried eggs, and it paints a pretty bland picture.

The ketchup livens it up a bit

A friend’s eggs benny looked pretty good, and another was very happy with her grilled cheese sandwich, but neither review was compelling enough for me to bump mine up a star. In fact, another friends review of his corned beef hash reinforced my decision.

Hash, with futuristic poached eggs.

I WOULD NOT go out of my way to seek out this oddly-located neighbourhood institution.
