I took my family for Sunday brunch and we all enjoyed it! It was quite busy, but that just means the food is good! The eggs benny and the cinnamon rolls are the greatest!

The High Level Diner, in Old Strathcona, is a delightful experience of retro dining. Great old fashioned breakfasts and antique style furnishings add to the ambience. The only downside is that this old diner is too popular! Sometimes the wait can be excessive.

For a restaurant made famous on "You Gotta Eat Here", it does not live up to the hype. A group of five us went for breakfast, and even though the restaurant was not busy, service was slow. One of my companion's quiche was chock full of egg shells and I didn't find the cinnamon buns to warrant a "world famous"... More

I've been coming here for over 20 years, breakfast is solid. Daily veggie omelettes, and wknd eggs benny brunch specials. Blueberry pancakes are big and delicious... and don't forget the famous cinnamon buns (get a few to go, they sell out consistently). Service is top notch, water and coffee refills every few seconds (it seems). Nice patio in the warmer... More

Visit quite often--great service, good value, great food. Lots of items locally sourced--nice art on the walls. |Comfortable and welcoming. A good range of gluten-free options available, and of course the cinnamon buns are still tremendous.

A nice little place with a trendy atmosphere. The food was very tastey. (had the Classic Eggs Benedict and shared a cinammon bun). The diner was quite busy. I would have given it 5 out of 5 except for lack of parking. Some one said there was parking across the street, I do not know for sure. In any case... More

Great name and location for the diner, however parking can be challenging and the restaurant itself is very squishy. They offer a variety of food options including twists on classics, such as smoked salmon quesadilla. The prices were on the expensive side, however the portions were large! Service was good.

Relying on TripAdvisor after a walk along the river, the Highlevel Diner was on our hit list. There was a bit of a wait to get a table but we were seated in no time. The service was great...our server was very attentive and friendly. The food was good, and portions were very generous. Prices were a little steep though,... More

We have eaten here previously but not in some time; after driving to a number of other locations which were all closed on a Sunday afternoon, we landed here and were glad we did. The service was great and the food, particularly the dessert was outstanding.

Waiter made us laugh from the very beginning! The indecisiveness from my friend led to a pronunciation of meeelk which the waiter formally put on the milk jug and completely made our night. The food came quick and was good!

Thank SunnyHeidi
