All day breakfast. The food is very good but I often find there is way too much of it. The staff is friendly. The current chef makes sure that each plate is warmed and served attractively.

Wimpy's is an Ontario chain, trying to duplicate the atmosphere of the diner that Wimpy (from Popeye) would go to and be gorging on hamburgers. It has stools and leather benches in booths. And a little jukebox at each table. I didn't play it though, because it also has a big screen tv that was on blasting the American election... More

Greasy, bland and pricey. I have tried breakfast here 3 times and this was the last. Service is OK but doesn't make up for the poor quality of the food.

It's nice for breakfast, but I found the lunch and dinner food a little too greasy for my taste. Price is average, atmosphere nothing special, and service (when we visited) not so great. But it is one of the better burgers in Cobourg. When I want a good burger, I drive to Port Hope to Olympus Burger or Harvey's

Looking like it came from the 50s (the only thing missing are the juke boxes at the booths) the menu is sure to please all ages. The prices aren't from the 50s but are reasonable. The food quality is excellent and the portions more than generous. You won't leave hungry.

The restaurant was a mess! I expect they were understaffed. I ordered a mediterranean omelet with potatoes and toast. I never did the get... More

Looking at the reviews I thought I'd give this old chain of restaurants a try. I had the wimpy burger and fries. Aside from the meat patty being so large it hung way outside the bun, it was hard, overcooked and dry as sawdust. The fries were also tasteless. I valiently managed to get through less than half the burger... More

Well I've been to the cobourg wimpys couple times and was not overly impressed. But wanted to try the port hope one. 6 of us went for breakfast on Sunday after church and it was packed. Waited 20 min and sat down. Food came hot and quick. Had a great breakfast and will be back. The 3 servers were very... More
