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

This place has been around since 1975. It has a German buffet on weekends, which I have not experienced, but have been here many times for breakfast. Opens at 8:00 on Sat and by 8:30 the first dining room will be full. Portions are large - event the seniors/kid sized breakfasts are more than enough. Regular breakfast foods: pancakes, bacon,...

This is always a great visit. The pancakes are FANTASTIC and my wife always gets the eggs Benedict and loves it. Great place for kids as there are toys that they can bring to their table. Parents with small kids will know the value of this!!!

This has been one of my favourite restaurants for a long time, and it just keeps getting better! We did the buffet, which came with an amazing curry zucchini soup. Every soup I have ever had here is simply amazing. I'd just eat soup if it was not for the tempting buffet! My top pick was the Rouladen. Simply put...... More

Stopped here for breakfast with other family members and found the place to be very clean and friendly. Waitress was super nice and service was great. Portions of food are large and very delicious. She even told us where we could go to purchase the bratwurst that they served. Great place to eat.Would like to go try it for supper.

We get our sausage at Victoria Fancy Sausage. They are also a small, family run operation. They have been providing us with sausage for about 6 years now and we are very happy with the quality. They are located just east of 66 street and 118 Avenue. I am glad you enjoyed your meal. More
