I'm not even kidding in my title. I have traveled all over Canada and still keep coming back. Especially for brunch in December when they have Christmas themed french toast. Amazing food. Warm atmosphere. Cannot beat this place!

The Avenue Diner was one of my all time Calgary favorites and it closed with indication that it was moving... and in the process of seeking a new location. Alas, this has not happened. I am hoping that it will pop up someplace soon and reinstate that fabuous diner feel and quality food. I have been waiting for it to... More

this is a very comfortable diner in dowtown Calgary that serves amazing food with an 'upscale' twist. the menu is diverse and offers an amazing array of healthy food choices plus lots of decadent ones as well. the eggs benedict options are outstanding !While I haven't had the banana fosters french toast I have seen table companions enjoy it tremendously....

Wonderful service. Greeted at the door by a happy, helpful hostess/manager named Terry who recommended the weekend special. Food was as amazing as she promised it would be and came very quickly. Space was a little small but the staff and food more then made up for it. We will be back again on our next trip to Calgary.

We had breakfast here. The food was great. The service was attentive. The staff - all women - had everything under control and everyone taken care of. They were very polite and working hard on a sunday morning.

Ended up walking out after being treated poorly by two female servers. I will never recommend or return to this restaurant!

We ordered and were forgotten about by our waitress (no coffee or water refills for the duration of our stay), we then received our food. which we started eating and when the waitress... More

If you have small children and are looking for a good place to have breakfast with your family, this is NOT the right one. The food is good and most of the staff is friendly. In fact, I considered myself a frequent client at this restaurant and every time I had a chance I would take family and friends there.... More
