this is a diner in downtown Windsor that has been around for decades. Corn beef hash is my favourite and if you like Peameal bacon then go to Skippy's and enjoy thick sliced, generously portioned and perfectly cooked. Kelly, a talented and super organized server makes my day every time I go...

Those puff cakes though.....MMMMMM. i cant say enough about how much i love this place, a true gem, thats been in the area for as long as i can remember; having grown up on Curry, and Oak. i do believe its new ownership from when i was a child though, as its most certainly improved since then!

I frequent this restaurant and the food is wonderful! Meals are always home made! The new decor is inviting and the service is great! The older waitress sure takes care of the senior customers!!! The waitresses attitudes are always positive and welcoming. I'll be back on Sunday for the Skippy's breakfast!

Cute & cheerful diner with good food & reasonable prices with oldies playing in the background. The problem here is attitude. I think business would improve if the overly familiar servers would speak to people with respect rather than in a condescending way demonstrating ageism as in "what are we having today & did we enjoy our meal?"

For those looking for a nice family meal, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner, look no further than Skippy's. Great family diner style restaurant with great food, friendly service and is family owned as well as operated.
