Fresh, elevated comfort food with lots of gluten free and vegetarian options. Everything is so good all the time. We always take visitors with us here and everyone can always something they like. Staff are good. The wait can be long on weekends for brunch.

Visited here for breakfast and was glad we did. The diner has a good feel to it and the staff were friendly and fast. The food was good with filling portions meaning you should never leave hungry.

They don't take reservations so it was a long long wait on a late Sunday morning...but they took our name and we wandered through the park just south of the restaurant (former site of the Calgary General Hospital). Food was delicious which made up for...More
