We ate at Johnny Pastrami's, a tidy little breakfast & lunch place on Ontario Street, and JJKapps beside the Holiday Inn on Ontario Street.
We had a standard-but-delicious and plentiful breakfast at Johnny Pastrami's, Deb delighted with her french toast, and I with my bacon (4 meaty slices), eggs (2 jumbo perfectly over easy), homefries (with onions, crunchy outside, creamy inside, and more than i could finish), and toast. We also got a pastrami sandwich (of course!) to go. We split the sandwich, along with some potato salad, for dinner that night. Total, with tip, $36. Well worth it!
JJ Kapps is attached to the Holiday Inn. It was one of the few places open, but not at all disappointing. The layout created fairly intimate spaces, decor was warm, menu covered the bases, from vegan to steak, barfood to cajun. Dinner was tasty, service was friendly, and price was .. reasonable. $60 plus tip for fish tacos, a monstrous "philly" steak sandwich, and a large bowl of jambalaya. We took some of each home.
We only had time to drive around the town, looking for a place to eat on Boxing Day, then sightseeing for a few hours the next day. Dalhousie neighborhood and the lakefront look interesting, as does "old downtown". I definitely want to stop in again sometime to explore those two areas, visit the Welland Canal museum, and explore other Welland Canal sites in the city.
