We decided to stop for breakfast on the way from downtown Edmonton to the airport. We somewhat randomly chose Barb and Ernie’s Old Country Inn. This restaurant is not in a trendy upscale part of town. Nor is it bright and well decorated. What it...More

The parking lot is non-existent for starters and the washrooms, although clean, are super tiny. This is really a diner atmosphere. That drives the overall rating down unfortunately because the food was really very good, as was the service. They do have a menu but,...More

The portion sizes were decent & taste was quite good (authentic homemade sausages). I prefer Barb & Ernies for brunch. There's usually a waiting line as the place is a bit cozy (nice ambiance). Recommended!
