Solid Breakfast Joint

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.

A friend of mine told me that her husband never wants to eat breakfast out anywhere except Skippy's, so we had to try it as part of our attempt to eat breakfast at every single breakfast venue in Windsor before we die. Ha. Service here was prompt and friendly enough. The eggs, toast, peameal bacon and regular bacon were good.... More

This is my second time here, the food is awesome. Downfall....is the miserable old waitress. We had to ask for everything, creamer, milk, coffee refill. If they keep someone as miserable as her on staff business will for surely go down.
