What they say.......
"I come because of the waitresses, you don't even have to place your order," said Frank Howarth. "They just ask you if it'll be your usual order."
He has been going to Russell Williams on Fridays since the late '70s. He and about 6-8 pals from the Burlington Sailing and Boating Club meet there weekly. "It's always more than you can eat, particularly for old guys like us," said Howard, formerly LaSalle Park Marina's manager for 21 years. "They make you feel at home."
And there's the fellowship. Rev. Grahame Stap of St. Alban's Church in Glen Williams (part of Halton Hills) once asked to join the group's table and still drives down regularly to meet them.
Another big fan is Steve Soepboer, a 40-year customer who enjoys breakfast there with friends. "It's like family here, it really is," he said. "At this place, you can't go wrong, it's always good. If you want a good, old-fashioned hamburger, come here." For a decade Soepboer, his wife Johanna Haan-Soepboer, Anna Dykstra, Leny Venema and Audrey Dykstra (absent that day) have gone there for breakfast after walking on the Beach Strip. They call themselves Steve and the Four Morning Glories. "This was the first place he took me in Burlington," said Haan-Soepboer. "His breakfast is almost always bacon and eggs."
The best Breakfast in town without a doubt!!!............... Reviewed by Dott McArthur
I have had breakfast around the world and I have yet to find a better breakfast. I am fussy about fried eggs and they seem to prepare them perfectly on a consistent basis. Like most breakfast places if you want your toast lightly buttered, you have to let them know. The staff is very friendly and always seems to be there at the right time for a fill up of coffee and a smile. The service is quick and although there is usually a line up on weekend mornings to get in, it doesn't take too long to get seated. When asked, I always recommend it for breakfast.............
