The visit was by no means memorable. The milkshake & bruschetta was embarrassing. This famous burger did not live up to the billing.

Not only was the room cold (we had to wear our coats) but, the plates were stone cold consequently the top of my omlette was warm-ish but, the bottom was cold. When we suggested to the waitress that the chef should heat the plates, she looked as us as if we were joking. I think a meal in an igloo... More

I love the hot open face turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes. The burgers are also good. Breakfast are great. Place is a chain of diners but they manage to keep the food consistent. The only complaint is that many of their locations are small and the tables are squeezed together.

We enjoy Whimpy's all the time but it had been years since we ate at the original Whimpy's. Frankly it's an embarrassment to the chain. The head office is next door in one of the dumpiest places in Scarbrough. Sure enough the food is good and great value but I can't believe the head office won't spruce up the plaza... More

Went here for breakfast the other weekend and the place was full inside with a few of their patio tables taken up too. It's not a very big location so I wasn't too surprised but we weren't in a hurry so we waited on their patio for a table to open up inside. We let the lady know we would... More

Love the atmosphere. Tons Of the old memorabillia. Wanted to grab a quick bite to eat After shopping at the outlet. It's a little on the pricey side but everything is expensive in Canada. The closest thing I can compare it to is Dennys. Excluding the price. 30 dollars for eggs benedict and a burger. Food is average But it... More

We stopped in for breakfast around10:45am on July 29/11 and the female server was great. What impressed us the most was the quality, quantity and price of the food. This may be a diner but the food wasn't greasy. It was fresh, yummy and well prepared. The menu variety was impressive, and being from Ottawa the prices way less than... More
