What's not to like? Great breakfast and lunches. Very reasonably priced. The staff is always pleasant and good humoured too. I have been going there for years. Windsor needs more family style diners as an alternative to high priced chains.

Recently had a breakfast here with my husband. The service is quick and the server was very friendly. The food was fantastic and came in a very reasonable time considering it was a busy place. We had a full breakfast and an omelette breakfast.This is a small place, and not one for the decor, but fantastic service, price, and food.... More

I always have my breakfast at Skippy's when I visit Windsor. It is a place for the regular folk to go to have breakfast or just a coffee with a friend. The server is very grumpy but that is part of the charm of the joint. Don't expect anything fancy just plain simple good, generous portions.

I had a quick business lunch at Skippy's today. I had the very best B.L.T. sandwich and fantastic onion rings. Skippy's has a wide lunch menu and many choices. Our server was quick and efficient and very polite. We were in and out in under 30 minutes.

Skippy's was a favourite breakfast restaurant because of their thick cut peamel bacon. We hadn't been in for a while and were pleased to discover that they had new owners, a new menu and kept everything we liked. So, I had a fantastic breakfast, with a great server. The portions are large, and the cost is still very affordable. The... More

We visit the restaurant for the first time and if we had live closer, we would go back! The service was good, the decoration was really great and the food was nice and pleased us all. Ordered breakfast, soup, chicken and club sandwich and we were all satisfied and happy when we left the restaurant. Can recommend a visit!

This was my first time here & we will definitely go back. The young waitress was efficient & friendly. Everyone in my group enjoyed their meal & it is very reasonably priced. Cute decor, too.
