Good place

A small cafe, good service and good food with a very unique interiors. The serving was filling and good. Not a very pricy place. Recommended.

I have been going to Fil's for over 10 years and for many of those years I went at least once a week. The family that operates this business is so loving and genuinely kind to all of their guests. They bring you into their family like you've known them all your lives. It's a great place to visit with... More

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.
