“Greasy Spoon”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

I just went here for breakfast with some guys at work and this is 'the spot' in the area!
Meal was so big I couldn't finish, and that is saying a lot!
The waitress and cook were like out of a TV show, real nice but looking rough.
Clean place, easy feel to it and they know how to treat you right.
Don't go to a chain-restaurant when you want some grub in the workday, come to the Bendale! This is the Scarborough of yesterday, right out of the '70's. Even the waitress had a mullet-hairdo.
You could sit at the counter and strike up a conversation about hockey, muscle cars or heavy metal music.

“My favourite greasy spoon EVER”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

When I lived in Scarborough I came here literally almost every Sunday for breakfast. Fast, cheap, made to order. Now that I live in Barrie, Sundays aren't the same..no breakfast place even compares to the Bendale, in my eyes.
Burgers, poutine and other greasy spoon faves are also delish. The Bendale burger is freaking ginormous.
