Essential

I recently moved from Montreal to Ottawa for work. This is a big change in life style. The part that pisses me off the most? I don't know where to go for breakfast on sunday morning.

I don't need anything fancy, just a quality hole in the wall dump that will sell me bacon, eggs, toast (maybe some sausage and hash browns too) and a coffee for like 5 bucks. A place where after a while they will get to know me. A place where I can order the "regular." A place where I can sit, drink my coffee, enjoy my meal, read my paper and generaly have a lazy start to my Sunday morning. This is a vital component to my existence. I don't know of a place like that in this city (since I've been here for 10 days) and it sucks. I had a great place in Montreal, but now.....

Almost everything else I can deal with in having left a city I love.. but Sunday breakfast in a shit hole diner, this is essential.

Like "Cheers" but without the liquor.
Around here it would be the Waffle House. Where you are is anyone's bet.

There are pictures on the wall in that place. That's way too high class for me

Max needs someplace where belching is not just 'tolerated'.

I went online to Ottawa's site. You're looking for a greasy spoon resturaunt type I think. Diners as we call them in Jersey. Good luck.

yes indeed, the greasy spoon is what i'm looking for... wording which i avoided since it's a bit of a local term i think...

And yes gats.. that looks closer too it, but you can see out the windows.. like someone cleaned them in the last 10 years...

ikea has to be one of the creepiest places on earth. Freaks me out every time I go..

The job is great. Lots of work and long hours, but I enjoy it. I don't mind staying late either since I don't know a single person here
