The decor of the diner is very aged, but don't let that fool you. I had a great, hearty breakfast consisting of Eggs Benedict and Home Fries, which tasted excellent. Our server was also very attentive and professional and made sure we were well looked after during our meal. Would recommend for a good breakfast or brunch!

Absolutely the best diner ever!!!!!!!  I have been all around the world and nothing is even close to the Midway.  Went there for my first time with Geordie (regular customer) and was welcomed with a steaming fresh cup of coffee.  The breakfast was scrumptious and the atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing.  Defo a place to visit for a great meal...

Had a late breakfast here after dropping out son off at college. We were starving & this little place popped up on our GPS. First looks were a bit alarming, it is a very old (probably heritage) building. We checked TripAdvisor for reviews & noted how busy the place was and decided to go for it. So glad we did!... More

What a good breakfast. I enjoyed a veg omelette with cheese, hubby did eggs over easy, bacon, etc. Pricing was very fair. I confess that as I sat in one of the booths with red duct tape repairing the upholstery I was a bit nervous, but I'm so glad we invested the time and stayed. They also had herbal tea... More

My husband and I were in Barrie on a Saturday morning doing errands and having driven past this spot we thought, "Wow...this looks like a great little diner...let's go here from breakfast". We walked in and were happy to see a cool little retro interior, busy and bustling with patrons. We seated ourselves and were offered coffee within minutes. Sadly,... More

Make sure you arrive hungry. This is good down home cooking at its best. The breakfast menu is extensive. When you first walk in to this retro 50's diner the amazing smells of pancakes, bacon and coffee hit you at once. The place is packed with customers all the time which says something about the food. Great place to people... More
