Allan and Jennifer Taylor have been welcoming regulars and visitors to their café since 1998. Casual and rustic Valentino’s consists of a few tables inside and table or two set up by the sidewalk in good weather. Craving Breakfast in the Afternoon? Valentino’s will never deny you a hearty breakfast at any time of the day! Enjoy the variety of breakfast fare such as eggs, omelets, pancakes, or toast. For a sampling of a variety of breakfast favourites, try the Egg in a Nest. This creation consists of a slice of grilled multigrain bread filled with an egg and then topped off with Swiss cheese and ham.
Lunch Served Fast and Good
Whether you have ten minutes or an hour, you can get yourself a tasty lunch at Valentino’s. Popular menu items include burgers, fries, sandwiches and salads. Enjoy a cup of fair trade coffee and choose from a variety of fresh traditional and flavoured blends. If you’re looking for a heavier meal, pasta can’t be found at Valentino’s. Although “Pasta” is indicated on the signage, pastas aren’t available on the regular menu anymore. Over the past few years, the habits of customers have changed towards the trend of low carb options.
Loyalty Does Have Rewards
Many loyal customers visit Valentino’s everyday for breakfast, lunch, or coffee. The customer loyalty cards (one for meals and the other for coffee) are a great incentive to return to the café – after nine stamps, the meal or coffee is free!
