The largest TV screen in the city would be the one at Mosaic Stadium. ;)

Hmm...

Is this the beginning of the end for the chain? The east location is gone already. I'll admit, I haven't been to one in probably 5 years myself. Used to really like that place.

I talked to a couple who were there for a few drinks and they said the atmosphere was good. They did not try the food. Hopefully it is better than The Nest.

Rumor is they're already circling the drain... so we'll see.

Haha my friend and I used to go to Southland Smitty’s for breakfast when we skipped class in university.

Having zero social media presence or even a website can't help.

I don't think South Albert is that great of a restaurant hub anymore. Harbor Landing has greatly increased the competition for the south end and downtown/east end have increased competition city wide.

In 2019, it's simply inexcusable to not have a social media presence.

You realize they are on Quance right. Although how would you know with lack of promotion.

And here I thought it was in the former Nest location.

I think people are talking about Hop and Vine and Has Beans Cafe.

Yeah don't know about Has Beans Cafe but Hop & Vine seems to always be busy when I drive by.

Press'd is open in the Hill Mall. Sandwiches and soup are fresh and tasty.

Pot shop appears to have leased space immediately to the North but no action there.

New ice cream shop opening on Albert south. Judging by the address, I expect it is near Red Swan (north of the Bonzini's strip mall).

That's nicely located. I work less than a block away.

Went on opening day and it was fantastic (and busy).

Starbucks is taking over the old Robins location on Mccarthy

Table 10 is closing at the end of March.

Harvard seems to be getting them in all of their shopping centres, along with DQ which has franchise cross ownership.

All you chain restaurant lovers will be relieved to hear that Olive Garden is hiring.
