A table of friends, phenomenal good and friendly service. An awesome way to start a Saturday. We had potato pancakes, 2 eggs to order and a pork schnitzel... Well prepared and super tasty. Everyone loved their breakfast. Will be happy to return soon.

This is a great place to meet friends. We arrived just before 11 on a Saturday and had quite a wait. When we left around noon there was no lineup. Service was good and the large portion breakfast was very tasty. We plan to come back and try their German cuisine for dinner.

Nice cozy atmosphere. The staff are very friendly. The food was amazing. I had the bacon pancakes. My wife had potato pancakes which she said was a good as anything we had in Germany. I am looking forward to a return visit hopefully for a meal as I can't wait to see if their Cordon Blue is as good.

Thank you Phil and bring your appetite if you try the Cordon Blue as they are big and filling and great with Eggs Benedict. More

Great value for HUGE HUGE portions. Not a Michelin star restaurant. Quantity over quality but then it is hard to mess up a Schnitzel, an omelette or a Bratwurst.

Dining at Barb and Ernie's Old Country Inn was a delightful experience for me and my husband. When traveling, we try to scout out local places and when the parking lot is full, you know you will probably get good food. We were not disappointed. We devoured an amazing breakfast which included eggs, toast, bacon or sausage, and I had... More

Locally and previously known as Barb and Ernies, it is still predominantly a German Diner. Sunday's are disappointing as they are open until 3:00 but only serve breakfast. The portions are large, tasty and filling, but I would really like a splash of gravy with my side of schnitzel. A good selection of German beers and two drafts. Watch your... More

More commonly known as Barb & Ernie's. when ever I go to Edmonton this is a must for breakfast at least once the food and service is great and the value for your money is excellent. If you go on a Sunday go early or be prepared to stand in line.

Whenever we visit family in Edmonton ton we try to ensure we can stop for breakfast/brunch. It's always delicious! My husband always orders the same thing -the German hotcakes with bacon inside.

This was a treat. A little pricey. I had the breaded pork with Crab and shrimp on it and a cream white wine sauce and covered in Cheese. Had the roast potatoes, red cabbage. But served with a beef soup that was to die for. A lot of food! My partner had the breaded pork with lemon and Choose the... More
