I call bullsh|t. The commenter joined a review site for the first time to slam a restaurant because the waiter wasn't sufficiently self flaggelant over the side dish the commenter appears to have waited until the end of the meal to whine about. Nothing re the rest of the food or service. Passing comment re the coffee that reads like they wanted to say something just to give the appearance of being other than what it was.... a petty revenge post that belonged on Yelp. THAT'S the issue.

AD_2, I did not get the impression from the review that they commented on the potatoes at the time of service. If they did, then what the waiter said was inexcusable. If they commented after the meal was finished, well, they should have spoken up earlier. Either way, those spuds should not have been served cold or even lukewarm and the restaurant is at fault for doing so and the reviewer is right to call them out on it. If i misread the review, I apologize to the Northergirl.

I have eaten there numerous times, and once or twice the potatoes have been lukewarm, but generally they are very good. Having said that, I hate lukewarm spuds.

I was here about a month ago on a business lunch and had the home fries - thought they were pretty good. My boss did as well.

Never bothered to do a review at the time but guess I should have.

Felinefan: The poster said in the review that they politely commented on the potatoes and the server just said "most people love them."

OSoloMeal: What's the issue? The person didn't like the food, had good reasons not to, told the server who didn't seem to get it, then shared the experience here "on a review site"...

Why did you not tell the waiter that the spuds were not to your liking when he served you? This is a great place and I am sure they would have served you a new plate.

So the coffee was outstanding, the entire breakfast other than the potatoes not worth commenting on, and the potatoes so utterly apocalyptic as to mandate slamming a place on a review site.

Got it.

Went here for Mothers Day. We had heard how wonderful it was but after reading the menu and making our choices, we anticipated that our food would be outstanding. I ordered the traditional with sausage, mom ordered the traditional with bacon, and sis ordered feta 3 egg omelette. They also included a gelatinous cold hump of " home fries" that were cold and extremely unappetizing. They looked like they had already been eaten by my dog. Awful! Needless to say, we were not impressed. The coffee however was outstanding!
When our mom politely commented on the unappetizing potatoes, our server said " well most people love them".
I guess most people will eat stuff that the server tells them is " great".

Not this gal!
We will find another local haunt!

The ribs with corn bread, potato and cole slaw.

Came here for dinner for the first time ever last Friday. It remains one of my favourite spots in Ottawa for breakfast. Omelette #1 is to die for. Great molasses bread made on premise. Great home fries/mashed potatoes concoction. Droool!

I diverge from the intent of my post. I have been going less often for brunch due to the long line-up which became too difficult with a toddler. So, dinner was good. Service was very attentive. I had the lamb shank on tomato Israeli couscous. it was good but i have had juicier, tastier lamb shanks at a former Moroccan resto in Old Hull or at Back Lane Café. Hubs had the ribs. Also ok -tasty fall off the bones but not smokey, BBQey enough. the sides of corn bread and cole slaw were well made. Definitely not as awesome as the brunch. Would I go again? Yes, for the good service and laid back family dinner setting at a decent price.

After not having been here for brunch in a while, hubs and I took the opportunity to come on our date week-end as my daughter was at my parents. Again, we were happily satiated by our favourite breakfast in town. I had the Omelette #1 (pictured) a classic as far as I am concerned at SFD: pesto, roasted red pepper, choice of Gorgonzola, Brie or Goat cheese, and mushrooms with a side of greens with balsamic vinaigrette, their breakfast potatoes (my fav in town perhaps except when The Big Rig randomly does good potatoes when they do not serve the deep fried commercial ones) and a huge slice of their own made molasses bread! I was greedy and ordered a side of sausages which was very good but I couldn't finish everything as it was a lot of food!

Hubs ordered the smoked salmon and spinach omelette and loved it too.

I have to come here more often. Service is friendly and refills on coffee and tea are always offered.

Tip: get there near opening time. It fills up quickly!

Went to Stoneface Dolly's for Easter brunch, what a disappointment...the eggs were overcooked, the mushroom patty-disgusting and the potatoes were mushy and tasteless. The only thing I enjoyed was the coffee. And oh yea, we also had a rude server. Never going back there again!!!

The restaurant gives you one of the best brunch setting ever. Located at a quite intersection of Preston it is not difficult at all to find parking in nearby neighborhoods. As you approach the building you can feel the busy yet relaxing vibe of city life.

This place is constantly jammed with customers and I can only imagine why. When you get inside the open concept extended through the kitchen and the patio. The place is mainly light up by natural lighting from the patio, penetrating a very positive vibe.

The noise level is perfect. Sitting is comfortable and the design of the restaurant is also very warm and welcoming.

Egg Natasha- It is basically Egg Benedict with smoke salmon and spinich, topped with lemon diablo sauce.
The pouch eggs are nicely done. However the beautiful journey probably stops there. The spinach is too soggy and too "dead" very over cooked. The salmon does not look too pink and it falls short on amount. The most disappointment is on the muffin. It was very damped.
It is not a very big dish, with the price we are paying you can probably get better.

I went there for breakfast on 2010 05 16 with my girlfriend. I had Omelet number 3 (red peppers, smoke salmon and goat cheese) and my date had the Eggs Natasha. We both really enjoyed our meal. Highly recommended for breakfast / brunch. I tried many, many places in Ottawa for breakfast and brunch and this place ranks in the top 3 for sure so far.

This is the reason to come to Stoneface Dolly's - I've eaten a lot of breakfast at a lot of restaurants, cafes, and diners in town and Stoneface remains at the top of my list.

Everything about their breakfasts is taken to the next level. They serve Art-is-in bread and Bridgehead coffee. Even the "hollandaise" is given special attention and made fresh (Cait has told me that their eggs benedict is the best in town).

I'm picky when it comes to potatoes. I'll always be disappointed to see frozen hash browns on my plate (when I'm not at a diner at least), but Stoneface serves a really nice fried mash that is unique, but still familiar.

That's the best way I can sum up brunch at Stoneface Dolly's - unique, but still familiar. All your favourite breakfast foods with a twist.

Tip: Go on Saturday to avoid long lines. One of my favourite places in Ottawa is their patio on a nice sunny Saturday morning.

The pancakes are thick and fluffy. These had raspberry in them. Other options include plain, bananas, or blueberries.

The bread is baked in-house like dinner rolls (balls of dough in a baking pan, matrix style) and is served very fresh, one per diner. But unlike dinner rolls they are huge -- maybe 3"x3" at the base and 4" tall.

Flavour is lightly yeasty and pretty good. Texture is great: moist and pleasantly chewy on the inside, lightly crusty on the outside.

Served with the ubiquitous olive oil and balsamic but I would have preferred it with butter. Excellent for dunking into soups and sauces.

The lamb burger (which is available on their lunch menu for $9.95) is a favourite of mine. It's topped with goat cheese, caramelized (red) onions and peppers. It comes with their house salad and yam chips or potato salad..choose the yam chips.

Every bite of the Erika Benedicts (sausage patties in the eggs Benedicts) were simply tasty!

I tried the Chicken bobotie eggs benefict for the first time and was delighted. The bobotie consists of minced chicken in a curry sauce served over slices of their locally made molasses bread topped with soft poached eggs covered in a Hollandaise sauce. The pan fried mashed potatoes was crusty and tasty as usual. There was also a small side of mixed fruits.

Service was prompt and professional. Our coffee cups were topped every time they were emptied.

There was a bit of wait for a table at 11am (20 minutes) but it was totally worth it!
