Great place - sounds like maybe there was a management 4 years ago or something? I have been going regularly for the last year or so and they are always super friendly, polite, prompt, and the food is always good. Keep up the good work!

i go once a month to nellies on 1000 8 th street with a friend(s) we were always seated promptly, greeted immediately and asked what we wanted to drink and within 5 mins or less were asked what would like to eat, absolutely first class service, there is food is something to rave about to as we have been going for about 11 months and have tried about half the menu as each time we go we order different things, i would recommend nellies to anyone, the food is awesome and the service is first rate

Always amazing food, awesome service. One of the guys working there recognizes us every time. Highly recommended, if you had a bad experience once it's definitely worth trying again.

We had brunch today at Nellie's in the Nova Building and the service was deplorable. We sat down at the patio (as motioned by the server to sit anywhere we wanted), and waited for 10 minutes before someone came to ask what we wanted to drink. It was at this time that the waitress cleared the mugs and cups still on our table left on the previous customer. We then waited for another 10 minutes and still no water. While I wouldn't normally care, it was 30 degrees outside and we were getting dehydrated from the heat! A couple that was seated after us had received their water and food before we even received our water! Another watiress finally noted that we had not received our water order yet and went in to check on it for us. I had to also ask the other waitress to wipe our table as the previous waitress didn't after removing the old mugs and cups. After receiving our food, our waitress came by once to see if we were okay and never again. We were done after 15 minutes of eating and were still waiting for a waitress to come and clear our plates and give us our bill. No one came to re-fill our water or even came out onto the patio. Eventually, we picked up our plates to bring them inside to get it packed up to pay the bill. There was 4 tables out on the patio and only ONE table inside the restaurant filled!!! There is NO EXCUSE for the 4 waitresses working to neglect the people outside on the patio especially in this heat! I WILL NOT go back nor would I recommend tat any go to that restuarnat. The food while average was brought down by the lack of service.

I don't know what you folks are talking about. First of all, this location DOES exist, and second: I love this place! I frequently go there before work in the morning. The staff has always been friendly and personable, prompt on refills and check-ins. Now that they're carrying The Metro, they have good reading material, too! They also got a great new hollandaise sauce that makes their Benny a delight.

As long time patrons of Nellie's across the city, we were disturbed by the 43 charges under the Public Health Act. You would think that Nellie's would be trying to repair their damaged reputation but oh on. July 18, 2010 I took my besft friend to Nellie's for his birthday. He suggests the one downtown (7 Ave & 10 St) telling me it's not affiliated with the recent health code problems so I agreed to go. We arrived at 10:45 to an almost full room - we stood at the front door waiting for someone to greet us (which never happened). I asked one of the four people working if we just seat ourselves to which I got "Yup" and then the employee just walked away. We sat down and waited for someone to come take our order. 15 minutes goes by - I flagged down another employee, asked if she could take our order and she did but drinks only - we asked for a cup of coffee and tea which we got right away. 25 minutes goes by and the only person who came to see us was a busser of some sort - she gave my friend more coffee (twice) but failed to asked me if I wanted more water. Still we are waiting for someone to take our food order. So, 40 minutes later and our food order finally goes in - we saw that another table that was waiting the entire time we were there. They appeared to be waiting for their food as they still had cutlery and clean napkins on the table. One guy looked pretty po'd. Another 30 minutes goes by - service stops completely - there are plates lined up at the kitchen but no one picking them up - the people in line started walking out - we asked the same busser if our food was on its way to which she replied "5 minutes". We gave them 10 minutes and walked. When I went to the counter to consider paying for the coffee and my one cup of hot water, I told the girl that we had been here for 1.5 hrs and to cancel our order. I had a five dollar bill in my hand and when I told the girl we were leaving she smiled at me, took the five out of my hand and said "Thank you" with a great big grin on her face. She is lucky I didn't slap her. So, if you want to wait for something that is never coming, get ignored instead of served and then pay for it too - go to Nellie's Break the Fast Cafe...then you may agree that they deserve THE WORST SERVICE OF THE YEAR AWARD. We went to Westhills for lunch - we were served and finished our meals in under an hour. We will never go back to any Nellie's in the city and if anyone asks me about Nellie's I will tell them everything I know. Oh, and thanks to Nellie's for returning my messages left daily with your staff. Just confirms that Taylor-King will dodge every complaint she gets until someone takes her to court. How can she sleep at night?? Thanks to cynlica for posting - if you hadn't I probably wouldn't have.
