I give up....impossible to get OM eggs here..unless you wait and the rest of your hot breakfast gets cold before they finally cook them. Bathrooms stink...I mean outhouse sewage back up stink. Mailing in the comment card they provide ...... yet again.

Was here for the first time for bfast. Noticed right away this is a home cookin type restaurant by the specials on the board. This is the place to go when you want comfort food. The skillet I had was cheesy and greasy...but a good yummy greasy! If you haven't been here and like that kind of food it is... More

I love going out for breakfast. This place has lots of various items on the menu and the food is always good. We have been a few times since moving to the province. It's nothing fancy but a great casual atmosphere. Always busy on weekends.

Busy place but always worth the wait! But there's a trick to avoid the wait if you're clever... I can't say cause then it won't work if everyone figures it out. Prices are a bit high but quality is good.

several of my friends do lunch here at least once a month, food is always good, service is amazing and you don't feel rushed to finish your meal and staff is very attentive!

Although the food and service was good, the prices are certainly high enough to discourage us from a repeat visit.

This seems to be the top choice for breakfast in red deer. We have been regulars for years. I notice the quality is slipping....we enjoy their nice crisp shredded hash browns (doesn't everyone?), this time they were soggy in a pool of oil. I ordered over medium eggs, I got over easy, and how can you be out of raspberry... More

I've eaten here many times. Love the flexibility to get half cubed and half shredded hashbrowns! Eggs benny is my fav. That said, the past two times I have been in, things have been super oily or over-cooked.... Hoping things get back on track.

I'll start positive, the coffee is good and strong and comes with your own thermos (also makes the waitresses job easier). However, the food is fit for a senior home with dentures or no teeth. I ordered a quesadilla, pretty standard I'd think. This was full of boiled mixed veggies - mostly cauliflower. Eeeew. So soggy it was almost inedible.... More
