Crazy busy place but, crazy busy because it's so good! The breaky is top notch, the fruit juices are awesome and limitless coffee is great. Love the outdoor seating and the cute, private alcoves in the place - a hidden gem!

This place is certainly more than a pub especially on the week end when they have brunch on sat and sun between the hours of 9:30-2pm. There were eight adults, four toddlers and two infants in our family group and the staff handled the situation...More

We were there in Feb 2018 and liked the poub. We sat right near the Bar. It was a lively pub. Good service with lots of local beers on tap to choose from. We had some nachos which were okay.

Stopped in for dinner, as I looked in and in was busy. I ordered the fish and chips which were at the table very quickly. The fish was an ample portion with no oily taste at all. Good foood for a bar setting.

I was not very impressed. The service was slow,the prices were expensive and my cup had old lipstick on it. Waitress didn't apologize/fix it quickly. I had a lot of thirst and waiting longer for my drink is frusterating

Parking’s always a challenge on Elgin, I typically try a side street. It’s worth taking the extra time and having to pay a little during the week to go there.
