Great location in the downtown core, but poor signage and an old, drab interior set the stage for disappointment. the Montreal-style smoked meat is definitely the best item here. Really very good, and worth going to Frenchies for that alone. It's also available in take-out packages. But it's a 1-hit wonder; the rest of the menu is pretty basic diner... More

Wandered around from the harbor looking for lunch and caught delicious scents escaping through the door. Frenchie's was a delightful surprise. So busy that day, but we were greeted with a smile from the waitress, sat down and watched the owner/chef rapidly multi-tasking to keep the customer satisfied. My husband had a smoked salmon plate which tasted divine with capers,... More

Not impressed! Went in for lunch with my husband and daughter. Waited 40 minutes for 2 sandwiches and what seems to be frozen fench fries. When the food finally came we weren't given napkins or cutlery, had to get it ourselves. The ventilation is very poor, the place smelled like an old deep fryer. I have had to soak myself... More

Came in by myself for lunch there was a server and the owner and it wasn't busy I waited 20 minutes for a sandwich. Causr the owner was to busy complaining about her staff to a friend saying she is the only one who does anything. Maybe she should focus on the customers instead of herself food was good

It's a very personal attack and you will have to come to your own conclusions. We apologies to all our guest for being subjected to all this nonsense. Again,... More

Had lunch with my wife. Excellent meal, great service. This is our third or fourth visit and it never disappoints us. Try the smoke meat sandwich or the tourtière, and the Caesars salad was home made.

My husband and I went for lunch because of the other reviews. This was a Thursday so I expected to see the place packed as it was supposed to be fabulous. No, it was not packed nor was it anything close to fabulous. My husband started with cream of spinach soup which was ok but served less than Luke warm.... More

This guest seemed to be going through a rather distressful moment yelling and cussing someone on the phone and then hanging up on them. As much as we tried... More

Pros: Great Montreal Smoked Meat sandwich. The Roastbeef on a baguette was delicious, loved the baguette. The sweet potato fries were some of the best we've had, not greasy at all and full of flavour. Cons: They were out of Tourtiere and the service was slow. We will definitely return next time we're in Cobourg.

I think this little place has got the best Montreal smoked meat this side of Montreal, and I never visit Cobourg without stopping by to pick up lunch. The restaurant is small but I always take out food, so I can't comment on the service, but the Montreal smoked meat sandwiches are amazing. Well, the bread isn't the best, but... More
