I had the pleasure of enjoying a breakfast at Whif's this morning. I had the cottage cheese crepes with mixed fruit and it was delicious. The waitress was very friendly and service was also very good. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a good breakfast at a great price.

My family and I went there for lunch and sadly we didn't have a good experience. The atmosphere seemed fun for the kids with a little train running on the ceiling of the restaurant with small action figures of the hulk etc riding. The room had uncomfortable chairs and sticky tables. The waitress was nice and so was as the... More

The outside of this place would make most just keep on driving and look for the nearest chain restaurant, but you'd be missing out on a great breakfast. It's not exactly reinventing the wheel here, but the menu is expansive, the bacon was perfect, the service was pretty quick, and it wasn't your cookie cutter eggs-from-a-carton type breakfast. Strongly recommend... More

I've gone here 3 times in 6 months. I love myself some breakfast, but each time i have had to ask and wait 10+ mins for milk for my coffee instead of cream. I've had to get up and ask another waitress for juices, or more coffee. The food when it finally comes out is great but nothing to rave... More

Closed at 2 PM on a Sunday? Perfect time for brunch I'd say and I really wanted to try it out since I have read great reviews. Imagine my disappointment when we pull up and the open sign is being switched off.

We were headed to Humptys but the parking lot was full. We decided to try Whiffs. (Did think we would be encountering the same thing) It was a Sunday at 1:00 pm so may have just missed dinner rush plus locals do head to the East Coulee monthly breakfast. I'm thinking we may have just hit it right because in... More

I love this restaurant normally but I had a bad experience on mothers day. It was busy and we expected to wait for our food, I have no problem with that. When the waitress brought out our meal she had the wrong one for me and took it back to the kitchen. I saw that on the table across from... More

This is a cool little restaurant with a model train running overhead. It was very neat. Loved the old-school diner feel. But... Our server seemed confused and flustered and there was no service with a smile. She may have been new. It was mother's day morning and the place was packed! We were skipped over for coffee by all servers... More

Food was awesome, had a great selection, and portions were large - price was very good. We felt welcome from the moment we walked in. We were not rushed at all and the staff all seem to have a good sense of humour and love what they are doing. It is definitely a families' family restaurant.
