We took our married grandkids out for breakfast on my birthday, what a wonderful morning. The kids got there first and were able to get a table by the front window. Logan was our server and she is a gem. Always there with refills for coffee and tea. I ordered the pulled pork hash with cornbread. Delicious doesn't begin to... More

What an awesome, quaint, and trendy diner. A long-time friend and I went here for a casual dinner with drinks after work while I was in town on business. She is celiac and I have to say that this place was AWESOME for both of us - great atmosphere, great staff, great food, and great drink.

I enjoyed the recommended breaded chicken sandwich with yam fries. The meal was $18, but I was not disappointed. I received a large portion of chicken perfectly breaded. The restaurant prides itself on local ingredients and has a small manageable menu (ensuring quality). My only wish is that the meal would also come with a side salad of the day.

I had high expectations for the Blue Star Diner. I have wanted to try this Calgary classic for some months now, but I'm usually just nearby on weekends, and on weekends, the Blue Star Diner has lines out the door. I picked a weekday lunch time and got seated right away. The burger was nicely flat-top crusted and tasty -... More

Alas no milkshakes, but they do seem to have a fully stocked bar (so that's got to be a plus!). Great eats - both breakfast and lunch. Good place to meet for informal business as well. Lamb burger. Mexican scrambled egg breakfast wrap and all other sorts of interesting stuff to try.

We've been here twice for dinner and somehow both times I ordered the chorizo skillet. It's really tasty. The prices are in the $12-18 range for brunch dishes. Pretty expensive but at least you get a decent amount of food. My skillet plus the toast was super filling and I almost couldn't finish it. Good coffee as well. We were... More

Trendy location in Bridgeland. Friendly staff and fresh atmosphere. menu options could be wider but food is tasty and fresh every time. Great place to meet for a catch up. Hours aren't very accommodating BUT its a "diner" so what do you expect? Parking can be tight and prices a bit high but the value is there. I like how... More
