“It's the Flashback Diner, not the Galaxie”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

While visiting Barrie we were up early and consulted TripAdvisor to find a diner that would be open for breakfast. I travelled back and forth on Bayfield searching for the Galaxie when I finally realized that the restaurant had changed its name. It is now the Flashback Diner. I asked the waitress when the name-change had occurred, and she said several years ago. Anyway, the place was packed even on a Saturday morning at 8 am. Service was prompt and the food was fine.

The food is always consistently good here, and the atmosphere is nice and relaxing as well.
Always a pleasant experience for a little diner.

“Great breakfast”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

I've only had breakfast here but it is always good, consistent and fast. Even when there's a lineup on the weekend it moves pretty quickly.

“okay”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

It is a basic restaurant with an okay variety of menu. The pizzaz just was not there. It needs an update even for a Galaxie Dinner...
