Dairy Lane has never been a milk bar, it was known mostly as one of Calgary's top breakfast places. They now serve dinner as well, 7 days a week. Moreover they take reservations and serve beer and wine.
They pride themselves on serving locally-grown and healthy food and they also cater to gluten-free and vegetarian/vegan diners.
The decor is minimalistic -- narrow (maybe 3 ft tops) formica-top tables, wooden chairs, and room for about 20 people -- plus an outdoor terrace in the summer. The tables are so rickety that if you lean on them, they will tip toward you and perhaps spill your drink! And every time the door opens, you get a blast of cold air (in the winter only, obviously).
The food is delicious and very reasonably priced. The service is pleasant but a bit on the slow side.
To sum up: A place with character and good food, very popular with the locals, but there are some rough spots. My favourite item on the menu is the pork burger.
