Have to get here early for a chance to sit down. There are plenty of breakfast dishes as well as lunch. I had the Calgary Sandwich today. Well worth the wait. The staff are very friendly and accomodating. They will even sit you next door if possible. They share both space and you can order from either menu. You can... More

I've been enjoying the food & service since about 2003 or so...long enough that they know what I will order. I eat there 2 or so times per month year round. The staff is always on their game especially "Jessa" as she is what a server should be and could teach a class.

OH MY GAWD. Go, just go. I went three times in a week once. I had the Montreal smoked meat hash at least twice. And their all you can eat home fries are incredible!

Food was awesome! Can for breakfast the smoked meat was fresh and the hot peppers added a nice kick! Service friendly ☺️ There was a lineup out the door when we left! It's small so not a tone of seating. Want to go back the lunch!

Came here for a recent birthday breakfast. The place is so neat with it's cozy vintage feel! Service was extremely attentive and food was delivered within 5 minutes of ordering. The hash-browns were the best I've had in my life, and the coffee came close. Definitely recommend!

I biked here with my family of 8 teenagers / adults to meet a friend. It's a small diner-style restaurant where you can sit at booths or at the bar. They serve breakfast all day long (with all you can eat hash browns and toast!!) and there is also a lunch menu. We loved this place! The service was prompt,... More

The menu is not very large,but it has exactly what you might want. The variety is good as it has a large range of tastes. The food is prepared in the front so you know what's going on with your food! Servers are always refilling your coffee cup with pretty good coffee, although it was better a while ago. The... More

We visited for brunch. I had the eggs Benedict with crab. The Galaxie Diner take on an eggs Benedict, using a croissant as the base, was certainly innovative. I really enjoyed the bottomless hashbrowns. Our main complaint that dropped the rating from a 5 was the cross contamination on the grill. As noted, I had the crab. Consequently, my wife's... More

The Galaxie recalls classic diners of the 1940s, with cooks grilling and plating in an open kitchen and patrons seated at vintage wooden booths. When it's busy, which is most of the time, a line for seats extends out the front door. The diner has become as much a local gathering place as a breakfast joint. We specialize in feeding friends, families, and hangovers.
