Heartland Gem !!!

The fish and chips are nothing special but The Meatloaf is worth the trip! The helpings are very generous. Great fare at a very reasonable price in a cozy 50's - 60's heartland atmosphere. Sad that I am too full to try the pie!!!!'

The breakfast here are outstanding. The home made sausages should not be missed. It is easy on easy off of #1 Highway and the service was fast and friendly. Great stop for breakfast or I imagine lunch

Just an amazing place with superior service, freshly prepared food so it's worth the wait and they accept American express card unlike a few bigger names:)

Small town prairie gem where the food is homemade and you can tell. Lovely, quint and quiet with no television sets. We highly recommend the pie with ice cream.

We stopped at The Diner on the September long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The food was wonderful and the staff was great. Next time we travel on Highway 1 we will stop there again for sure.
