Here, we call them brekkies

Believe it or not, we weren’t always the home of the Mzansi breakfast. Even though Wimpy has been around since ’67, we only started serving our famous brekkies in the ‘80s. Local legend has it that there was one particular restaurant on the East Coast that started it all… or rather, some customers did. As the story goes, Wimpy only opened for lunch in those days, but two customers showed up at 7 o’clock in morning asking if we served breakfast. Because the chef usually made breakfast for the morning prep crew there was some bacon and eggs in the fridge, so ‘Ja, why not?’, he thought.

The next morning, there were enough customers to fill the restaurant, and 40 years later, every Wimpy serves a variety of brekkies all day using free-range eggs & local produce.

Also, we decided to call them brekkies, because this isn’t breakfast like you know it. We’re sure after reading our brekkie story, you’ve worked up an appetite. So, how about we help you find the one that’s right for you?
