I really do love their milkshakes. They're a good size and decently priced. I got their sweet potato fries as well. The fries come in a huge portion for a cheap price so that's good

If you want to experience a 50s diner go to wimpys. Even tho they have expanded to other locations, the original in Guelph maintains the true 50s feel. Posters and adverts from the era as well as stools that rotate at the counter, take you back in to a simpler time.

After a tour we stopped for a late snack on the way to the train. We arrived 40 min before close and watched the sweetest happiest you g girl clean up for close. Her ambition restored our faith in young people and her happiness was contagious. The poutines were delicious! Nice crispy thick fries, and the Sleeman beer was cold!... More

This place has been recently renovated and have kept prices constant to be competitive with the many pubs, bars, cafes, restos, etc in the area. Specials are only a couple of bucks cheaper that their regular pricing, but the monday burger special is outstanding if you don't take on the extras, the draft and wine is cheap because it is...

This is an authentic, cozy and efficient restaurant that does not skimp on servings. Our breakfast was done perfectly to order and it was EXCELLENT. The Staff were attentive, friendly and efficient. Their conversation with "the regulars" was especially enjoyable. It is a small restaurant that is very BIG on quality and quantity.

Thank Stephen H
