“Good breakfast, the prices have really gone up”
Review of Wimpy's

Wimpy's
Ranked #41 of 97 Restaurants in Cobourg
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We eat at Wimpy's every couple of months and normally for breakfast.

The previous entries are right about preferences, especially at busy times when it can take a while to get served.

I would rate the food as average with good size portions. My preference is the "hot turkey" which is normally quite nice depending on the choice of side vegetables (probably canned).

Renovations are required, the men's wash room has been under construction for as long as I can remember??

Prices were reasonable but last year they decided to make many of the normal portions (fries, salad, etc..) an "extra" added cost or side order. This additional increase made many of their meals expensive for the portion served.

This place is in an out of the main flow of town location but well worth looking up. The staff is friendly and kind. The food is fabulous and they accommodate your menu preferences.I will return often and encourage others to do the same !

Of all the breakfast places I've visited in many cities, this place has a reputation for presenting a lot of "hit and miss" dishes. The biggest "miss" was making the mistake of ordering pancakes and French toast. The pancakes were overcooked to the point of having a hard crust surrounding them. The French toast was the same. Both were absolutely dry and flavourless!

It is a shame that there is a lot of food prep inconsistency with the Wimpy's chain. Most of all, it's inexcusable to mess up a very simple dish which a child can do very easily.
