We Want To Hear From You!


We are Except For Kenneth, an ode to the father of one of our owners, who has travelled the world and marched to the beat of his own drum. In that wild spirit, we offer an ever-changing menu that will satisfy and enthral. The current Except For Kenneth fascination is comfort-food inspired by the ol’ English Isles and prepared with the famous Kershaw touch. Delicious sandwiches and flavourful salads for lunch, fun appetizers and stick-to-your-ribs cuisine for dinner.

A neighbour and brother to Black Sheep Snack Bar, we serve interesting fare every day in a relaxed atmosphere as individual as our cuisine. Everybody just wants to be liked and accepted — except for Kenneth. Kenneth doesn’t give a shit.

We are a proud member of The Other Bird family.

Upcoming Events

Trivia Night!

Think you know it all? Come and prove it. Every Monday at 8PM, we host a fun trivia evening. Did we mention the prizes? If you’re good, you can win food, gift certificates and cash. Bring some friends, grab a pint, and name the last man who walked on the moon.

Live Music!

Ottawa Street rocks, every Friday night at 9PM. We host intimate performances by talented local musicians who want to get your toes a tappin’ and your hands a clappin’. Much like our trivia night, it’s a great excuse to hang out on Ottawa Street, grab a pint, and eat a snack or two.

Want to perform at one of our Friday night sessions? We’d love to have you. Drop us a line!



Is there parking?
While we do not have our own parking lot, there are numerous on-street spaces and Green P parking lots nearby.

Is there anything to eat for a vegetarian?
Absolutely! We will always have a variety of options for vegetarians and vegans.

Weren’t you just serving tacos? What happened?
We sure were. But, we want to keep our menu fresh and interesting so that you don’t get bored. Right now our menu is all about comfort-food favourites. You’ll love it.
