    Great food and amazing staff!

  • *****

    My husband goes there every weekend. I joined him a boat once a month. I love the fact that they're willing to do my home fries on top of the grill with fried onions!

  • *****

    Food is good but the one waiter with a pony tail was rude quite a few times...

  • *****

    My husband and I are very busy with our work. Fast food is not always the best option, but Cambridge Restaurant is like having a friend cook dinner for you. Every meal is cooked with the best ingredients and tastes like home. Sometimes even better, because someone else makes it.

    I absolutely love this restaurant, and have been going since I was a young girl. Always friendly staff and the food is always so good! Toasted triple layer Turkey club sandwich with fries and graveyard and a side of slaw. I highly recommend it!
    Their gravy is addicting. Think they changed it years back. But that didnt last. Dont fix what isn't broken right?
    At least they notice what works! This is an awesome family restaurant!

    Your staff has been nothing but kind. I have been going to this place for 10 years and nothing but kindness. The food always comes quick and fast (and not to mention delicious) I would give you millions of star ratings if I could. Keep up the good work Cambridge staff!

    Best coconut cream pie I have ever had! There isn't much that can make me have dessert after breakfast but that pie is impossible to resist.

  • *****

    Just got home from lunch at The Cambridge Restaurant !! I no longer live in Cambridge but find time to venture in to Preston just to eat at my favorite restaurant. The food is incredible, and the service is always top notch!!! ??

  • *****

    Amazing crunchy chicken salad! Fresh and delicious!

  • *****

    Had the Maple Bacon Pie ...thought it tasted amazing however could have used a scoop of ice cream for $6

  • *****

    Went for the first time today. Their food is so good! Had the big breakfast plate. I'm totally stuffed and it was a great price. The server was super nice to us as well. We'll be sure to go back here again

  • *****

    My family and I go regularly - one of my Dad's favourite place to go

  • *****

    Just a solid little old school neighbourhood diner. Some of the servers are happier than others to see us but the food is fresh and fast. My coffee cup never gets below half.
    My kids and I really like Saturday morning pig outs and playing the little triangle peg game they have.
    Such a better alternative to 50’s. Which is awful.

  • *****

    Cozy atmosphere, delish homemade deserts and great service.

    Those who say can not mess up breakfast are wrong. This is a great restaurant; food was fantastic; service was extremely quick; and prices not out of control. Will definitely make this a favourite for breakfast when in town again!!

  • *****

    This diner has been there for decades. Great food and the perfect throwback diner for the morning after.

  • *****

    Home cooked food and great prices

  • *****

    This is one of our favourite places to eat. The waitstaff are friendly and know our names. It is kid friendly and the food is comfort style. There is plenty on the plate and we know what to expect when we go there.

  • *****

    Great food...fast friendly service ..waiter/waitress are always very welcoming and if your a regular he/she makes it a point to know your name and remember your what you like. Thomas is the one of the best servers in the area.

  • *****

    Great food, good prices. Always like to get the BIG breakfast with the amazing pancakes. Would definitely recommend Cambridge Restaurant to anyone.

  • *****

    Best breakfast in Cambridge. Great prices, food, and service! They also make one tasty burger.

  • *****

    I had a special called the Lumberjack Benny It was eggs Benedict on bacon and cheddar pancakes with ham. It was my favorite breakfast I have ever had here! (all of them are great) It was so very good. Great job guys.

  • *****

    I've been going to the Cambridge Restaurant for several years now and I highly recommend it. The food is excellent (both for breakfast and lunch/dinner) and the staff are great (they know many of the regular customers by name, remember their usual beverages/meals, they're friendly, and they're very good at their jobs). If you go for breakfast, I suggest trying their French toast or omelettes. If you go for lunch or dinner, try their hamburgers (homemade patties and variety of toppings to choose from) or their Philly cheese steak sandwich (although not on their regular menu, they often have it as a special).

  • *****

    This is a fantastic diner! The staff were really nice and the food was great. Portions are large and prices are reasonable.

  • *****

    Great food and friendly service. Nice thick slices of turkey, fries, cranberries, coleslaw, stuffing and gravy. The pie and date squares terrific. Would definitely go back.

  • *****

    Amazing home made food!!! Want comfort food... Go here... Any time we eat out its at this place! Thomas is a server there, he is amazing!! So kind, amazing worker, and always remembers your name!!

  • *****

    Great quality food and service. Our favourite diner style restaurant by far!

  • *****

    Nice people. Owner head chef. All fresh food. Had the liver. A+. Kids meal good value. Home made corn dogs. Many different options than your typical Canadian family restaurant. .

  • *****

    Nice family restaurant but service was not so great. It seemed there was one server for the whole restaurant and he did a great job keeping up but really needed help. I would happily return.

  • *****

    Great breakfast, at a great price. REAL HOMEFRIES, like you would make at home, not those stupid frozen deep-fried rocks far too many places provide these days. Middle of downtown Preston, street parking right out front, main floor washrooms. And really good food!

  • *****

    At last a restaurant that doesn't use salt in everything to give it "flavour". If you need salt ...add your own. The food is excellent and healthy. The new owners know how to do it right. The hot Turkey Sandwich is delicious. Keep it up! Larry & Connie

  • *****

    I met a couple of friends here who live in the area, as I am from Ottawa and they said it was good. I found the food to be pretty good for a diner style breakfast, and the service was good too. The best part was the price, 23 dollars + tip for 3 people, that's cheap! Would, and definitely will, go back.

  • *****

    Great food, new specials every day. Most things are made from scratch. Friendly staff too.

  • *****

    Good home made food! Excellent place to come. Friendly service

    New review. I have ate at the Cambridge for many years. The last few months I have been there for breakfast. This time we decided to try supper. My first supper here in a year. I ordered the ground sirloin something I used to get many times before. The sirloin was nice and tasty. Lots of flavour. The mushrooms I think were out of a can. They should be fresh. Only one scoop of potatoes which I found displeasing and told Thomas the waiter. They were great but not enough of them. They gave us a small piece of corn on the cobb which as a surprise but it was corn season. Not near enough vegetables only five pieces of green beans done el donte. There could have been a little more on the plate for the money. We had dessert something we don't usually get. My favourite, coconut cream pie. And you get a BIG PIECE. I thought I had cut it myself. This was worth the stay here and I hope they continue doing this. They have made some changes here with new plates and putting up all the old pictures of Preston on the walls. I have often wondered where they got the pictures from? The one issue they have not addressed is the booths. These need a sledge hammer taken to them and thrown out. If Robert Irvine from Restaurant Impossible was in there, this is the first thing he would love to destroy. The Cambridge Restaurant has the small town feel and has been around for years. It was called the Skyway back in the 60's and was run by a German man. This is the only restaurant of it's type in this area and they have a full menu including bar. If you want to be successful, listen to your customers. The advice is free and it helps.

    Love, love this restaurant! The best Westerns I've ever had. But everything is great and tasty.

  • *****

    As a busy greasy spoon that hasn't changed the decor in at least 15 years, you know what to expect. Reasonable prices, quick food service and a plate full of food to fill your belly. The staff sometimes can come off as short in their interaction but with how busy the Cambridge Restaurant is during the breakfast and lunch rush it is to be expected. My husband and I have been here for breakfast and lunch and will be back again.

  • *****

    Cambridge Restaurant is one of those greasy spoon style hidden gems in town. Located in Downtown Preston it's almost easy to miss among the busy traffic on King Street. The restaurant is very old, having been around for decades. The decor isn't amazing, but you don't come here for the wall art, you come for the great homestyle cooking.

    All the food is homemade and they offer lots of different variety. They serve all day breakfast and have daily specials all the time, which is quite cool. This morning I opted to get the Oktoberfest Breakfast. Big sausages, sauerkraut along with breakfast staples eggs, fried potatoes and toast made for a filling meal for sure. I've loved daily specials they've had in the past like potato pancakes that were excellent.

    They have a full menu, so this place is great for lunch and dinner as well. I've been there quite a few times over the years and can't recall having a bad meal. They're just one of those places that executes the basics so well. Stuff like having great french fries and gravy, or an amazing chicken club. They always seem to have a pretty gigantic menu, with lots of options, then multiple chalk boards in the dining room with even more stuff on it.

    There is parking around back, as well as a back entrance, so you don't have to fight for parking on King Street. They can get pretty busy, with lineups on weekend mornings to get a table.

    This place is legit!!! I have gone 3 or 4 times and I have never had a bad meal. They have a good size menu and always have a few specials to compliment it everyday. Great for a hearty breakfast or a way above average lunch.
