The 'go to; diner! .... so, what are you waiting for? Get going to Checkerboard
July 03, 2014

I'm not expecting over the top touchy feely staff and finae ambiance when heading to the Checkerboard. What I get is friendly staff, consistency a well priced menu with variety and excellent value.
The Checkerboard delivers just that.
I've taken clients, suppliers, friends and family to the Checkerboard and will continue to do so - love this place!

Very disrespectful
March 19, 2014

I have to begin by saying that their food was excellent. If you're only looking for a good breakfast, this place is worth a try. Their service however, was terrible. A group of friends and I went out for a late breakfast on a Sunday afternoon after sleeping in, and immediately upon entering the restaurant, felt hostility. There was five... more

Best Vegetarian Omelette in Canada
March 01, 2014

I have eaten in restaurants from B.C. to N.S. and have never come across a vegetarian omelette that compares to the excellent one the cook serves up at th Checkerboard. It isn't pure vegetarian because it includes real "old" cheddar cheese...which in my opinion is a great addition. Tons of green peppers, onions and mushrooms sliced thick so they can... more

Hard to Find Neighborhood Hole-in-the-Wall
January 27, 2014

I was to meet others for breakfast at this place I had never been to before. Drove past it without seeing it; fortunately I had a the street number and realized I was past. It's quite a small place that shows its age, and seems to be family run. There are two rows of booths and some tables in the... more

City Vibe in a quiet neighbourhood
January 23, 2013

good diner food perfect for nursing a hangover.

Great food
May 15, 2012

This place is your classic greasy spoon. Good home-made food. Cheap. If you are looking for high price and pretention, go somewhere else. If you want to feel like home go to the Checkerboard. We have been going to the Checkerboard for over ten years and consider them to be family.

A Bad Restaurant
March 24, 2011

I went there in March 2011, and there were a few issues i noticed. For one, the waitress we got was very rude. Although we did notice that she was friendly to other customers who were obviously regulars. She acted as though we (A First, and last time customer) were an annoyance and a bother to her. Second of all,... more

Mmmmm breakfast
January 01, 2011

Go there and enjoy the cheap delicious breakfast and relaxed atmosphere. This is a truly family run place and we go there frequently. Sometimes the place has just been bombarded with students and the staff is moving a bit slower - wouldn't you after a rush? The coffee may not always get filled up so ya might have to ask.... more

Your friendly neighbourhood greasy spoon
March 24, 2009

The Checkerboard is a one of those iconic, cheap, greasy, delicious, neigbourhood places that everybody knows. Their $3-$6 breakfasts offer better value even than Waterloo's infamous Mel's, but without the late hours and student crowd. Instead, you'll usually find an older clientele, a single over-worked waitress and a quiet, cheesy, fake-plant-filled atmosphere. The Polish sausage and egg... more
