Their skillets are built upon a bed of their famous P&S potatoes, a recipe they smartly keep in the vault.

Diner Deluxe

Never underestimate the power of a breakfast sandwich.  A seemingly basic compilation of ingredients, when built well there is almost nothing as satisfying as a skillfully executed breakfast sandwich.

Products can be tasted on-site just as wine samples are made available in winery tasting rooms.  And while we could go on and on about the Jammery’s incredible line of jams, there is so much more to love!  Take, for example, their “All You Can Eat Waffles”, topped with whipped cream and their housemate four-berry or strawberry sauce. With all the traditional favourites like benedicts, omelettes, waffles and hashes, there is a little something for everyone here.
