“Good basic food, usually served quick”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Usually eat breakfast, decent selection of gluten free items. Try the gluten free waffle..... not bad. Service is friendly and quick. Coffee is pretty good, worth a refill. Weekend staff usually not as efficient as the weekday staff. One of our favourite meeting places for our weekly business meeting. Open early as well (6:00 a.m.)

“Shocking Experience!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

On Saturday September 21, 2013, we were leaving Calgary and decided before we leave we would all get together for breakfast. We were seated and the waitress took our drink orders, when she returned, as she leaned over to set down some cups she poured the hot water that she was holding in the other hand down my back. Startled and shocked I stood up to pull my shirt and jacket away from my skin, she kept apologizing and took off, another server came over and said can I bring you a cold towel which I was very grateful for. After all the distress and a burning wet back, not one cent was taken of off our bill!! Maybe a little PR would go a long way!

“Very quiet restaurant & great staff & good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Near to the Travelodge University-walking distance.
Not to busy, but staff still attentive to our needs & provided helpful suggestions. Food was good with no complaints.

“Breakfast specials in the evening”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Friendly and efficient service, but the only Special at 7pm was the skillet breakfast, viz. cheese-filled potato skins with a fruit dish, displaying a total absence of imagination.

“Great Breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

I would much rather eat here than at Denny's or McDonald's. The food was very good, the waitress was very nice and friendly, and the price was right. I will go again.
