I've gone here 3 times in 6 months. I love myself some breakfast, but each time i have had to ask and wait 10+ mins for milk for my coffee instead of cream. I've had to get up and ask another waitress for juices, or more coffee. The food when it finally comes out is great but nothing to rave... More

Closed at 2 PM on a Sunday? Perfect time for brunch I'd say and I really wanted to try it out since I have read great reviews. Imagine my disappointment when we pull up and the open sign is being switched off.

We were headed to Humptys but the parking lot was full. We decided to try Whiffs. (Did think we would be encountering the same thing) It was a Sunday at 1:00 pm so may have just missed dinner rush plus locals do head to the East Coulee monthly breakfast. I'm thinking we may have just hit it right because in... More

I love this restaurant normally but I had a bad experience on mothers day. It was busy and we expected to wait for our food, I have no problem with that. When the waitress brought out our meal she had the wrong one for me and took it back to the kitchen. I saw that on the table across from... More

This is a cool little restaurant with a model train running overhead. It was very neat. Loved the old-school diner feel. But... Our server seemed confused and flustered and there was no service with a smile. She may have been new. It was mother's day morning and the place was packed! We were skipped over for coffee by all servers... More

Food was awesome, had a great selection, and portions were large - price was very good. We felt welcome from the moment we walked in. We were not rushed at all and the staff all seem to have a good sense of humour and love what they are doing. It is definitely a families' family restaurant.

It seems really difficult to find a good breakfast joint in Drumheller. Having eaten at Humpty's the day before and finding that to be rather bland, we thought we'd try here. The service was quick but unattentive as Lorelee, our waitress, seemed to be off in her own world, running on auto. We got pretty much what we ordered but... More

...and it's not because there is nowhere else to find breakfast in Drumheller. Whifs is worth the wait, IF you have to wait. Yes, there may be Aunt Jemima syrup on the table but that doesn't mean you're out of options. Just the opposite - the flapjacks with fruit and berries, the country club omelette, and the eggs basil are... More

Stopped in on Sept 13 2013, I was promptly greeted by my server and seated. Being my first visit I asked what some of the more popular breakfast specialties were. On my servers recommendation I tried an omelette with ham,turkey, cheese and hollandase sauce. Very tasty and fresh, it was simple but very good, pancakes were awesome too. Will definitely... More
