The Edmonton trail location use to be my go-to spot when I needed a brunch fix and a must visit when family or friends from out of town were visiting. I didn't mind standing in the often long line or paying the higher prices, as I knew the food I was getting was top notch. However, after visiting the Aspen... More

I only eat one thing when I come here, the fried oatmeal dish! Not sure what the other dishes are like. Service is decent. Always busy so arrive early or be prepared to wait.

We visited the Diner Deluxe Aspen location for breakfast in early August, about six weeks after it opened. We were excited to see another restaurant in the area that was suitable for families, and we're familiar with the Diner Deluxe location on Edmonton Trail. Unfortunately, the Aspen location misses the mark in a few areas. Service was friendly overall, but... More

A destination that lacks well trained servers and the menu selections are mediocre. Although they are warm and welcoming they struggle with the multitasking necessary to make this a good experience. The portions are representative of what most breakfast diners suffer from - portions that are excessive. Bring down the portion size - bring down the price - contribute to... More

We went with 2 adults and 3 boys on a Tuesday at 10:30 am. We were trying for OEB but it was closed so we felt lucky to find this nearby and highly rated. The food was excellent and Iman, our server, really helped by suggesting tweaks like having 2 boys share an order of pancakes that was huge and... More

Visited the Aspen location Sunday August 10th. Upon arriving we were impressed at the decor but value perception diminished quickly as the two young hostesses could not seem to coordinate with each other as to what tables were available. Upon being seated we opened the menu and were a bit taken aback with the pricing. The waitress was friendly but... More

We went to the aspen location based on a recommendation. First impressions were positive, but once we received our meal, our server was nowhere to be seen. There seemed to be a lot of staff hovering around the kitchen, but they were looking after the patio customers. The halibut was really good, but portions were small. The ribs were super... More

Decided to eat here with a friend. Ordered the veggie burrito with breakfast poutine. Burrito was tasteless with barely any veggies. The poutine was all sauce and no cheese... For $18 was extremely disappointed. Everything was so over priced for what you get, would not recommend and will not be returning.

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.
