Sammy's on Wilson, Ancaster, Ontario We love diners, so when my man's father suggested Sammy's, we both perked up and said sure, yes, let's go! The parking lot was busy (always a good sign) so we parked across the road. A little cool walk does the body good in winter is what I say....snicker snicker ;) We were escorted to... More

The service just adds to the great breakfast or lunch. There are a lot of regulars there but it is large enough especially in the summer with outside sitting.

The title says it all. There are so many better restaurants in Ancaster. In fact, They are all better than Sammy-Jo's Place. We waited and waited in line only to have the hostess pick other people from the back of the line and seat them first. Once seated, the service was very slow and our breakfast specials were average at... More

Great breakfast. I go there almost every Saturday for breakfast. Local ownership which I like. Service is very good with friendly people. Owners take time to say hello

Spinach omlette with bacon, hashbrowns, toast and coffee was plentiful and tasty. It is a busy time there on a Sunday morning but the service was good and food and coffee were hot.

I went with family on Saturday and we enjoyed breakfast. Food is well served and taste is good. You can have eggs in different presentations, but also there are burgers, salas, and sandwiches.

My partner and I took a friend here for breakfast. This is a local favourite and I was glad it wasn't too busy. My partner had a type of eggs Benedict with avocado and salmon, that wasn't listed on the menu but that she absolutely loved. I had a Skillet that was very good and I would have it again.... More
