Third visit to this fantastic restaurant. It never fails to delight. You may have to wait in line but brave it out, it's worth it. Quick with the great coffee. The food may be a wait, depending on how busy they are, but it's fantastic. Always good value. Fabulous retro feel. We'll be back again.

Waited 30 min for our table after 20 min at the table with no service left. Lots of staff rushing around. If you want to try it don't take someone for their Birthday as not a great way to start your Birthday (June 28/14) !

My wife and I went here for Father's Day breakfast. The wait to get into the restaurant was less than 5 minutes at around 09:00. I had an omelette that was huge and full of meat and cheese. Very tasty. I cannot eat a lot of carbs and they substituted tomatoes (I had my choice of fresh or fried) for... More

I enjoyed lunch at the Diner Deluxe on Wednesday June 11th, 2014, along with my wife and a friend. The facility is in an old building on Edmonton Trail NE in Calgary. The décor is "retro" and the dining area is fairly small. We were greeted and seated immediately on arrival. The waiter was courteous and very efficient. Our food... More

Remember those teal faux leather plastic metal chairs your grandmother seemed to have in abundance at functions? Well look no further, you are about to sit upon one, this place seems to be the final resting place for this once classic sitting apparatus. I think what I love more than the food at this place, if that is possible, is... More

Had a business meeting at Diner Deluxe recently and was good. No reservations, so we arrived a little before noon and were seated immediately. The atmosphere is right out of the 60's (maybe 70's), classic diner. A couple of folks in our group had breakfast items (classic eggs and a benny) and they mentioned they were good, our third person... More

Breakfast poutine with BBQ pulled pork - hit the spot! Come in if you're in town, classic dinner experience! You'll have more than excellent service if you're lucky enough to have Jessica as your server. Coffee's grand.

I came with a group if 4 from Ontario after the gold medal hockey game at 5am. We were exhausted but the food came out quickly and efficiently, even though they were super busy. Will be back every time I'm in Calgary.

Was looking forward to breakfast with my little one here and was kind of disappointed. Really love the surroundings but sausages were bland and dry, eggs undercooked on top with still runny white on top, toast cold and we horribly over ordered pancakes for my daughter and the waitress never bothered to explain how big the pancakes were. All this... More
