My daughter and I sent to Blue Star Diner for a healthy late afternoon meal. I ordered the salad with a grilled chicken breast. Delicious. My daughter ordered the chili and we both had the gluten-free bun/bread. They put a large bottle of water on your table and I like that. Service was friendly and efficient. We left feeling satisfied... More

This small quaint place is a hidden gem for brunch! Service was great, and for having a line up because it is small it certainly didn't take long and was worth the wait! The menu has great options and the food was delicious!Very happy someone told us about this place! Definitely will return when visiting Calgary again!

This little hole in the wall in Bridgeland is wonderful. The food is amazing. The service was fantastic and the ambiance is delightful. My suggestions would be to perhaps go around 11:30am or noon as it is VERY busy for breakfast. They do however give you a cup of coffee to enjoy while you wait, but again it is a... More

Delicious! So glad we went! It's busy all the time which tells you a lot. The menu offered variety, and our meals were very tasty. Definitely worth going to!

The food is fantastic: fresh and flavorful. The Huevos Rancheros is the best I have ever had. They make their own pickles and serve homemade jam with the toast. They serve an all day burger. My son loves the burger for breakfast. I love the buttermilk chicken burger for lunch or dinner... my sauce is fabulous. Warning: prepare to wait... More

The food and staff here are top-notch! The last time we went I had the pulled pork hash and my husband had the eggs benny and both were delicious and filling. The atmosphere was upbeat and fun, the decor is nice, and the whole place was super clean. We WILL be back when we are back in town.

Blue Star Diner is a classic setting with classic food. The Huevos Rancheros is something I literally dream about, it's so good. The eggs benny is also to die for. They do takeout on weekends, which is nice since neither OEB or Diner Deluxe seem to do that. Great place!

We had supper here while visiting Calgary, after reading the recommendations on TripAdvisor, and were not disappointed. Friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive service and great food. Each person at our table enjoyed what they ordered. A twist on ingredients in what could be ordinary diner fare adds the extraordinary flare. Will plan to return.

Excellent food and great service. Would recommend the huevos rancheros and blue star burrito. Not the cheapest but it's worth the money as it's such good quality food.
