My wife and I were passing through Barrie and had seen some revies on this place so we wanted to see if some reviewers were wrong....they were not. On walking in to this smallish place we were greeted my a massive collection of "things " hanging everywhere. Fil himself came over and took our orders, which he then went back... More

My husband and I with are 2 boys drive all the way from Milton to enjoy the fantastic food and atmosphere. Lisa and Fil are truly one of a kind, that service up a fantastic meal and for a family on a budget they are priced more then reasonable.

Fil's Cafe is one of a kind. Both Fil and his wife Lisa, are lovely people. The restaurant is small, but cozy. Fil has collected many items over the years and he is proud to display his interests on the walls. A fun-loving atmosphere, family oriented. Food is great, nothing negative to really say about this place. Fil will serve... More

Cluttered inside but has a charm of its own. A good breakfast. Coffee was average. Old typewriters, plants and assorted stuff inside - if clutter bothers you don't try Phi's. Other than that it was average to good.

We stumbled on this place completely by accident and were hesitant to eat here. From the outside, all you can see is a small, brick building, with small windows, covered in bars. Inside the door it looks more like an antique shop. As we sat contemplating, we watched two people walk inside and decided that if other people were eating... More

Fil's used to be a favourite for their Greek Salad. Last time I went, it wasn't so good anymore. It's been around for some time, mabye it's time for an update.
