We were lucky enough to have a table right away. Delicious menu so it was hard to narrow down a brunch type meal. Ordered the breakfast burrito with chicken sausage. The order was so large, had to take 1/2 home. This is my 6th or 7th time here and it is so worth it. Most of the items on the... More

Great place to go for lunch or breakfast on bridgeland, food is fresh and they use lots of local products which is awesome, service is always great. Love the coffee, I always get the mex style omelette which is very yummy.

We had been recommended this diner by our friend's son, it's very popular at 10am on new years day (we popped down the road for a wander as they messaged when our table was free) you can't book which is understandable with such a popular and friendly diner, it's not a huge place so be prepared to wait. But it's... More

We've been several times for breakfast/brunch. The food is always top notch - fresh ingredient made to order - and the service has always been great and super friendly. I especially like the juevos rancheros. We've never felt rushed and always leave well fed and caffeinated. 🙂

Three of us had a great meal, service was good. Relaxed atmosphere. Friendly staff low background music, some of which bordered on irritating. My companions didn't even notice it. A thumping techno pop beat, not my bag.

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!

Thank margo s
