“I could eat breakfast here every day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2010

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. when we visit calgary, this is one restaurant that we always make a point of going to. make sure you arrive early on the weekend - the lines up start forming after 9:30 am but it is worth it. it would be nice if they had a wider selection of coffee but ...what the heck, this is a diner afterall.

“wonderful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2010

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.

“Well oiled machine.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2010

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!
