3 stars (out of 5)
They’ve changed their name (and signage) to “Ontario Restaurant” from “Ontario Bistro” which is good, ’cause this ain’t no bistro. That being said, it’s interior is a pleasant surprise when judging by the exterior, and the stretch of Dundas St. on which it resides.
The breakfast specials (which two of us had – eggs, bacon, home fries, toast AND coffee) were a deal at 5 bucks. My veggie omelette, which was decent and included the same sides, was 7. Eggs Florentine got the “thumbs up”. The coffee was above average, the home fries (sliced) were well cooked if a bit bland, and the eggs and toast were standard fare. Comparing the quality and price with MANY other diners, this is a deal.
Why only three stars? The meal was definitely worth 4, but the service was slow, the waitress was dour, and the coffee was refilled only upon request. Customer service goes A LONG way!
