  • "This place is the best. I try to make it out every Sunday for breakfast. Fantastic staff and great friendly service."

  • Best breakfast in town. Homefries, special spices and onions, make for the perfect side to your bacon and eggs. The rye bread is worth the switch. Friendly service and 40+ years in business tells you something.

  • Steve’s Open Kitchen is a Hamilton icon. I’ve never had a bad meal there. The breakfast is great and very fast to the table with seasoned servers who are cheerful and attentive. The lunch is great too with decent choices. Always fresh and hot! I’m a lifer!
  • Best Eggs Benny around! ( pro tip - ask for the REGGIE BENNIE). You won't be disappointed. PERFECT poached eggs on the best pea-meal bacon, crispy english muffin slathered in delicious Hollandaise!
