I came with a group if 4 from Ontario after the gold medal hockey game at 5am. We were exhausted but the food came out quickly and efficiently, even though they were super busy. Will be back every time I'm in Calgary.

Was looking forward to breakfast with my little one here and was kind of disappointed. Really love the surroundings but sausages were bland and dry, eggs undercooked on top with still runny white on top, toast cold and we horribly over ordered pancakes for my daughter and the waitress never bothered to explain how big the pancakes were. All this... More

Every said about this place is right. The food is good, service was excellent and good choice on the menu... But you can have a dinner's feeling without being a greasy spoon corner restaurant. The place is filthy. Clean it up please.

Great food, great service. We got there early and there was no wait but by the time we left there were 30 people waiting. Get there early! Menu has a great variety.

I have been here several times over the years. I'd have to say that it used to be much better than it is now. The retro decor is neat and the atmosphere is kind of fun. The food however, is quite pricey for what you get and compared to other breakfast spots. The coffee is good and the menu varied.... More

Get the 50's feel in a very good restaurant. Careful-- servings are big. Burgers are very good, our grandchildren loved the mac and cheese,and most other dishes are fine. DON'T GO AT LUNCH TIME -- your will wait much too long to get in. Ditto Sunday brunch. Service was so so, but they are trying. Just put your persnickety button... More

I have gone for breakfast and lunch here - and had breakfast both times! Love the pancakes and definitely the baked beans. The bonus is having a gelato next door on the way out - irresistible!

This is a great diner with a cool atmosphere and fantastic coffee. Been a few times and it's always busy but I can understand why. The coffee is superb. Try the chocolate French toast or the fried oatmeal!

Snap back to the wonderful old dishes your mother used to make...just good old fashioned comfort food at affordable prices, large portions, all in an enjoyable venue that is reminiscent of those times gone past. Well worth the trip ...and don't be put off by the rather blasé exterior!

Diner Deluxe is a great place with great food and service. Often use it for morning breakfast meetings if there's no more than four of us, any more and it's really not productive. We can sit around a stylish kitchen table that I'm sure is from the 50's and feel like we're sitting at home, only someone else cooks, cleans... More
