High Level has been one of my favorite Edmonton places for several years. I wanted to go before Christmas in order to pick up a couple of Tourtierres for the Christmas season for drop in guests. I took my son (adult ) and I knew it would be busy and/or hard to park, but feel it's worth it. Parking tough... More

3.5 - I appreciate that they make most of their food from scratch, including their ketchup. I appreciate that they openly post information on recent health inspections (they have a had a few violations this year) and pride themselves in cleanliness. Last Friday, at lunch, I headed there with my mom. Everything was off to a good start. We were... More

I have eaten many times over the years at High Level Diner and it's always great. The purpose of this review is to let people know of the delicious tourtieres they make starting in November which you can buy and take home. I bought one last year and it was a hit at our New Year's day dinner. I highly... More

Food and service always great here! The bread pudding is absolutely decadent!!!! Usually a line up on weekends but worth the wait.

My most recent of very many visits was just as good as every other visit. I love the eggs Benedict here, it is made with real hollandaise, seemingly a rarity in restaurants now, and the eggs are poached well, not too runny but runny enough. My wife really enjoys the pancakes with berries and usually gets them. We also have... More

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.
