Whenever we visit family in Edmonton ton we try to ensure we can stop for breakfast/brunch. It's always delicious! My husband always orders the same thing -the German hotcakes with bacon inside.

This was a treat. A little pricey. I had the breaded pork with Crab and shrimp on it and a cream white wine sauce and covered in Cheese. Had the roast potatoes, red cabbage. But served with a beef soup that was to die for. A lot of food! My partner had the breaded pork with lemon and Choose the... More

This place has been around since 1975. It has a German buffet on weekends, which I have not experienced, but have been here many times for breakfast. Opens at 8:00 on Sat and by 8:30 the first dining room will be full. Portions are large - event the seniors/kid sized breakfasts are more than enough. Regular breakfast foods: pancakes, bacon,...

This is always a great visit. The pancakes are FANTASTIC and my wife always gets the eggs Benedict and loves it. Great place for kids as there are toys that they can bring to their table. Parents with small kids will know the value of this!!!

This has been one of my favourite restaurants for a long time, and it just keeps getting better! We did the buffet, which came with an amazing curry zucchini soup. Every soup I have ever had here is simply amazing. I'd just eat soup if it was not for the tempting buffet! My top pick was the Rouladen. Simply put...... More

Stopped here for breakfast with other family members and found the place to be very clean and friendly. Waitress was super nice and service was great. Portions of food are large and very delicious. She even told us where we could go to purchase the bratwurst that they served. Great place to eat.Would like to go try it for supper.

We get our sausage at Victoria Fancy Sausage. They are also a small, family run operation. They have been providing us with sausage for about 6 years now and we are very happy with the quality. They are located just east of 66 street and 118 Avenue. I am glad you enjoyed your meal. More

Visiting friends who took me here for breakfast one morning. It was very busy and we had to stand outside until a table became available. It is not a very large restaurant to begin with, but once inside it certainly had a "home" appeal to it. It is owned by a married couple who work and make it a point... More

My wife and I decided to try this restaurant for breakfast on a Friday morning at 8:30 am. We encountered perhaps the smallest parking lot at a restaurant we have ever seen. The 12 car lot was full and the restaurant looked half empty. Needless to say, we went elsewhere.

You are completely right in that we do have limited parking in front of the restaurant; however, the parking in the adjacent lot on the north side of the property also belongs to us. More

Just ate there this morning was good service and even better food. Our meal was great and my wife's pancake was the size of her plate literally huge! We have been several times and always had great experiences!
