Description: The Galaxie recalls classic diners of the 1940s, with cooks grilling and plating in an open kitchen and patrons seated at vintage wooden booths. When it's busy, which is most of the time, a line for seats extends out the front door. The diner has become as much a local gathering place as a breakfast joint. We specialize in feeding friends, families, and hangovers.

“Charming 1940's diner decor, delicious food & great service! Well worth a visit!”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

I really enjoyed this place! They were happy to cater to gluten free needs, although it did cost a bit more, and the food was delicious. If you go on a weekend, like I did, plan for a possible wait in line as it is a popular place. The vintage, curving wooden ceiling, culled from a diner railway car, is gorgeous. The rest of the decor is vintage 1940's diner, and the cosy atmosphere is very appealing. Did I mention that the food was delicious?

“Best Burger in Calgary”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

The Galaxy Burger is in my opinion the best Burger in Calgary. It is a different style of burger. The place is small but all the food is quality. Be prepared to wait in line. (That is a good sign)

“Good, staple diner”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

My friends love Galaxie Diner for its unique style and breakfast options. It's a little hole-in-the-wall with lots of personality. Close to downtown

“Great down-home diner food”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

One of my favorite Sunday morning breakfast joints in Calgary. Nothing too fancy, just your typical diner fare, very comforting. Warning: You get a LOT of food so come hungry!
