“Nothing Wimpy about the breakfast !!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

Have been coming here for five years on the recommendation of family... Our usual breakfast orders are prepared consistently and are very good.Have ordered the same dishes across the country for 100% more cost and 50% less quality!! Happy to have Wimpy's as our come back to Canada breakfast joint!

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Get the very best of everything at Wimpy's Diner and enjoy some songs on the jukebox while relaxing in a clean, comfortable and friendly setting. The menu includes the best of everything from a Hot Hamburger Meal to English Style Fish & Chips. If you enjoy a Toasted Western it is simply delicious. The variety is amazing and also includes salads and soups of the day. Great coffee and desserts for all those sweet tooth lovers. Portions are large and prices are affordable for you and your family. They serve up a great tasting early morning breakfast but you can also order it all day long. The food is so great that our family keeps going back for more. Try it out and enjoy the flavors of a ' true diner' which are few in number and hard to find anymore. Guarantee you will go back again!

“Old faithful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

I have been coming to George's place since he opened and it's become an old faithful. Prices have climbed over the years (what else is new) and portions have gotten smaller (surprise) but it's still one of the better family style restaurants in Barrie. Place is usually busy so be prepared to stand and wait a short while... but usually not too long. Worst wait times are Saturday and Sunday mornings from @ 9am to 12 noon... seems like everyone wants to go for that big breakfast and Wimpy's only has so many seats, you usually end up waiting in line for an hour or so. Lots of wait staff... busy kitchen (open so you can see them do their ballet) this is the old style diner atmosphere of the 50's and 60's. If you want fancy this is NOT the place for you... if you want good size portions and basic home cooking type food then I think you'll be pleased.

“Very cool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

Wimpy's is a great old fashioned cafe like the 60's. The food is great. The staff are very accommodating. Great environment and the price is good. I recommend to try it out a least once.
