“Incredibly Greasy, Even for a Greasy Spoon”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We went to Humptyes for the third and final time this weekend. It was terrible. The sausages were so greasy, they literally exploded when you cut them, and even with the request for only a little bit of sauce, the eggs benedict was doused in so much of the fake butter flavoured sauce that I couldn't even eat it. And to stop that off, they still charged us per cup of coffee, even though most breakfast places include your coffee with your meal, as long as you're ordering breakfast.
On the plus side, the service was quick, and the restaurant itself was clean. Maybe it would be a better place to go for just bacon and eggs, or pancakes.

“all-day breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

I think the major plus of Humpty's is the fact that you can order breakfast ALL day! Large portions; wide variety of dish selections; fast service. A great place to bring the family if you don't want a crowded, noisy, overpriced venue.

“Depending on which Humptys you go to.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

I've been to several Humptys in Edmonton and one in Grande Prairie Alberta. G.P. Humptys was popular and they had an excellant Breakfast. I quit going when I heard a northside Humptys in Edmonton was recycling the food left on plates by customers. (the cook ratted them out) However I believe they are individually owned so out of convenience I go with coworkers to the Whyte avenue Humptys.
The food really sucks. I usually order toast and coffee. (the jams that come with it are so rubbery it's hard to spread) It's cheap so that's why people go I think but if you want a half decent breakfast pay a little extra and go somewhere else. The service is good and they have a big menu. You get what you pay for.

“Best Place for Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

I love going to Humpty's for breakfast, I never have to wait for a seat, even on weekends, the food is always great quality, top notch customer service, and the prices are reasonable. The Mexican pan scrambler is super yummy, but get the one size smaller unless you have a BIG appetite.
