All Day Breakfast At Jimmy's Lunch in Kitchener, Ontario

Okay here is an unbiased review and I don’t care who I offend but it’s good, it’s good. If it wasn’t good I would not be bothered to do this unless it was really really bad. I read some reviews and I have some things to say about some of the reviews. You can’t call a restaurant a greasy spoon or a classic dive when the food is so fresh and the premises spotless. When you first walk in you’ll see it’s bright and freshly painted. Memorabilia from the 20’s to the 50’s from May West and Marilyn Monroe to James Dean. Retro furnishings including these 50’s tables that Martha Stewart did a whole show on. It has a real warm homey feel. So let’s talk about the food!!!! When you first walk in you will see two water coolers one with spring water and the other distilled. So go and grab a glass from the side bar and help yourself and drink some fresh pure water as much as you like. If you like the water you can also buy the water in the 5 gallon containers kept at the front. Most of the locals come for the breakfast, just wait until I tell you why. First of all everything is farm fresh. The bacon they get is straight from the farm; whole slab bacon that they slice right there on the premises the slices of bacon are thick and meaty and crispy 2” x 7”, I measured it, Lol. Some people like their bacon very crispy and some not so crispy so make sure to specify from very crispy to semi-crispy. I like it very crispy. The back kitchen door is always open and often you will see them slicing it. You get 4 large slices of bacon with your breakfast. Eggs are fresh from the farm and you can really taste the freshness. The tomatoes are fresh from the farm and they usually put 2 big slices on your plate. The potatoes also come straight from the farm. The potatoes are; rolled, peeled and sliced right on the premises and that is why people come for the breakfast. They also include a side of homemade coleslaw, I like it in a paper cup. Also you get 2 slices of whole wheat toast buttered. Enjoy a nice cup of spring water coffee for yourself. The coffee is at a cost of just a $1.25. You should help yourself, just grab a cup and pour yourself a bottomless cup of coffee. So this is arguably the best Five ‘Star Breakfast Equivalent’, by far and it should be quite expensive right? Wrong. Would you believe $5.95 and believe me they fill up your plate so come hungry. Just so you know it does get really busy on the weekends and sometimes there is a wait line but it’s worth the wait both in quality and in value. The cooks are Frank and Carol and they are the reason why people keep coming back for the beautiful breakfasts they make. If you think this review is biased come in a try the breakfast for yourself. Please keep in mind that the hours of operation are from 7:30 am to 2:00pm.
