We had breakfast here and it was fabulous and affordable. They have a unique menu with Latkes and Waffles. Food presentation was excellent and the customer service was friendly, fast and efficient. Restaurant was clean and very busy and the turnover was steady with not much of a wait for your food. I would eat here again in a minute... More

Service is very prompt. Breakfast is hot and fresh. A very good selection to choose from. My favorite is Eggs Benedict and the French Toast. My husband's is the Farmers Omelet. If you have children with you they love the train set and runs above everyone's head. We have had lunch there as well and it is always good.

We chose to forego our free hotel breakfast and ate at Whif's two mornings in a row. Whif's does not serve fancy food, so don't go there expecting artisanal free-range waffles made by waffle monks. The flapjacks are fluffy, the waffles PERFECT and oh my god, the latkes...I'm sure they are deep-fried because they are so crisp on the outside... More

Very busy at noon on a Sunday. Seemed a little confused at how to seat 6. Once we were seated, the service was decent. The food was a little slow, but very good and a good price. I'd recommend trying it out, but get there before noon.

This place is full, busy and delicious! Worth the wait for a table. 4 year old son loved the train running along the ceiling! Mom loved the latkas! Can't beat the prices!

I ordered an omelet and toast. My hubby ordered a combination 3-meat breakfast, eggs and pancakes. Both orders were very good. Weren't told there was a Sunday Brunch available, but later looked at what was available and were glad we ordered what we did. Good service. Lots of people waiting to eat which shows it must be popular with tourists... More

Tried this place cos it looked busy so thought good sign. It was. They can get a bit overwhelmed as people are coming at them non stop. Food was good, not overpriced & service was friendly. For those who get annoyed at having to wait remember good food is not instant! Needs more obvious signage from the main road but... More

Got here nice and early the morning of tough mudder for breakfast. The service was great and continued even after the tables all filled up. The food was good and very reasonably priced for the portions.

Very friendly staff. Waitress even remembered us the second day we were there and what we had ordered!! I had the pancakes the first day and she was asking if I wanted the chocolate chip ones and I said that was way too much chocolate that early. The second day she jokingly asked if I was ready to eat the... More

We enjoyed breakfast at Whif's twice during our latest stay in Drumheller. We found all entrees to be abundant, extremely tasty, well prepared, and very reasonably priced. The service was extremely efficient and friendly, with a very welcoming feel. The ceiling suspended train was a comfy touch, and fascinated old and young alike!
