Warnie’s Family Restaurant & Drive Thru Espresso

Raise your hand if Warnie’s is your all-time favorite family restaurant! Everybody’s hand went up! And that is a tall order in my family. Everyone has their favorite restaurant, but if we all want to go someplace together and not settle – Warnie’s is the place.

Warnie’s restaurant is not very big; cozy enough that Grandpa can shoot you a joke from another table and you’d hear it to laugh. Oh, and did I mention Warnie knew most of the customers dining? Yes, there is a real Warnie. He came out and asked us if we liked our meal (a couple of times). I confirmed his restaurant was our families all time favorite (big ‘stached smile).

I know I’m going to get hungry while describing our meal, so here goes…

I ate the hamburger steak (saved half it was so big) with grilled onion, baked potato and slaw. The slaw was fantastic and a generous serving. My partner ate the chicken dinner (3 pieces fried, with the same sides). I was lucky he shared! The crispy coating was like candy on moist chicken. One boy ate the shrimp basket (had to protect it from his siblings), the other ate shrimp scampi (he was in shrimp heaven) and my girl ate a kid’s hamburger with fries. YES. Warnie’s has a lengthy menu especially for kids. It has 11, yes, eleven different choices for your kid. You can’t go wrong!

Did I mention the Italian sodas? Italian sodas with cream. And whipped cream on top. Can your kid say YUM?

Warnie’s has what I call a full diner menu. Lots and lots of choices.

Diners are huge in NY & NJ. We’ve lived in a few places. Whenever it was time to move, our search criteria included diner sampling. Go ahead and laugh, but I kid you not. The people eating there would be your neighbors. The quality of life in these towns seemed to be directly reflected in their local diner.

With that in mind…Warnie’s is at 120 Front St in Sumas. 988-6400. An easy stop to make after crossing back from Canada.  “Check it out”, as they say in NYC.
