Great smoked meat sandwiches

Great 50's atmosphere. Great breakfast but best of all is the smoked meat sandwiches, whether you eat in or take-out. We visit at least once per month. Service is pretty quick and this place plays the oldies and goldies. Great for the young and old.

We arrived 2:00 p.m. Sunday, January 31, 2016. It was not very busy. Restaurant was clean, hostess greeted us, seated us at our table fairly quick. Our waitress, horrible service. When asked questions about menu items, she didn't seem to have a clue as to what was served with an item. Had no idea what the soup of the day... More

For your average restaurant with a great staff serving 'ordinary good food' in a '50's motif, which includes your favourite oldies and even some "Elvis",this is your stop. The food is fresh and served hot as soon as it is done.On Sunday's it is packed with the regulars by 930am so if you want your breakfast at your usual time... More

This place has been a staple for me since moving to Cambridge. Highly recommend the smoked meat pizza and patty melt. I haven't had a bad bite yet, and there's still so many things on the menu i want to try. Staff is nice, and the seats are comfortable.

Place looks nice, renovated since I was there last time, food was good too, however not tea. I am a tea drinker and the water they use to make the tea is not acceptable. I haven't had such a disgusting tea in a very long time if ever. They should filter the water. Water in Cambridge, ON is very bad... More

The price is affordable and the food is aplenty at Fifty's for breakfast. It can be pretty busy at times which can cause slow service. If you like a big breakfast at a reasonable price, this is the place for you!
