Very expensive, greasy, cold food. The place could use a good cleaning. Everything you touch is sticky or greasy. Yuck!

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.
