Wexford Restaurant - Are you kidding me??
Okay so it's not a place that we normally frequent but Mr. Millygirl and I do on ocassion enjoy a greasy spoon breakfast, and so we were in the area, and STARVING and decided to nip in to The Wexford.
As I said, it's been quite some time since we were last there but honestly, WTF!!! I could not get over the prices. Bacon and 3 eggs - almost $10. Fish and chips - are you ready for this - $19.95. At first, I thought this must be a typo but no, they are charging $19.95.
The waitress all but agreed with us that the prices are insane. And then we did something I don't recall ever doing before - we actually walked out!!
There was no way we were going to pay those kind of prices to eat at the Wexford. And another thing, there is no way their fish and chips could be anywhere as good as Olde York, which I believe is about $12. No wonder the place was empty at noon.
My rant for the day.
I just went to The Wexford Restaurant. I had peameal scrambled, multi grain rye, OJ, and a coffee. My girlfriend had an omeltte(egg white), no toast, tomatoes and an OJ. Friendly place, everyone seems to know everyone else here. Fast service, good food. Quality of food was good, excellent portions, thick bacon, refills too! Real fresh squeezed juice! Did it right in front for all to see. I liked the place, have returned. One of the best breakfast places I have seen.
Woooooaaahhhh! I haven't been for a couple of years, but semi-regularly took an elderly relative there, for a few years (his choice, not mine). Things must have changed, because the prices were never anywhere near that.
Lately, if hubby and I are looking for a cheap greasy spoon, we head to Sunshine Spot, on Sheppard, north side, between Bayview and Leslie. 3 eggs, 5 strips of bacon, a whack of pretty good fried potatoes, and toast, all for $5.50, I think. We had breakfast there today for two, and the bill came to $14.00, including tax.
My husband and I were there last weekend too, since we were in that neighbourhood doing other things. He'd never been before and I hadn't been in years (I used to work near there).
It was over $30 for bacon & eggs (times 2), 1 coffee and 1 OJ, including tax and tip. For that kind of money I'd rather go to Daybreak or Cora's. We're not out that way often, but safe to say we won't be going back.
