“Something Different”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

We are trying to stay away from chain restaurants, so it is a pleasure to find a place like this. It has a small dining area, but we were there before 5 pm on a Saturday and had no problem getting a table. The menu is limited and it offers unusual food items like bison chili, but everything tasted fresh and good. I can't say I tasted any liquor in The 2 oz drink I had though. The staff is very friendly which is an added bonus these days. I'm not sure if we would go back since it s out of our way, but I highly recommend it for a first visit.

“Consistently delicious!”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

I recently moved to Calgary and Blue Star Diner was well recommended on TA so we gave it a try. It quickly became our favorite restaurant and we have been many times! Brunch is amazing, I've only had a few things on the menu because they were so good I couldn't resist having them over and over. The granny smith grilled cheese and the breakfast sammy are my favorite items! There is almost always a wait, but the staff greet you at the door and will serve you a beverage while you wait, the wait is certainly worth it. We will be back again!

“Great neighbourhood spot”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We love coming here at any time of the day, whether for brunch (be prepared to wait, it's a popular spot!) dinner or drinks (they usually have something good and craft-y on tap). There are lots of options for veggies or vegans or gluten-frees and they are all really tasty. We always have great service and the staff are always super friendly!

“Great breakfast spot”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

In this day and age of fast food and chain restaurants, it is such a treat to come across a successful neighbourhood eatery that is a little unique in its offerings. We got there a little after 8 a.m. and there were only a few other people there but by 9 a.m., it was close to being full even though it was a work day. Although they don't have a huge menu, the food was good and the portions generous. The staff were all very friendly , the service was quick and efficient and the surroundings are pleasant. It was a good find (thank you to previous Trip Advisor reviewers) and I wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

We have had dinner and breakfast here. Both times the food was delicious and the service impeccable. The restaurant is small but cute and the staff are very friendly.
