Anyone who lives near Kensington already knows about Dairy Lane! This quaint restaurant is such a gem! From the authentically happy staff, to the delicious meals made with care, small town atmosphere with excellent value. We have loved this place since the original Dairy Lane and it continues to happily surprise! For a "place to be" for breakfast to a... More

As I said this is a hidden gem. This place is small but the atmosphere is great. I have tried breakfast only but the food was wholesome and awesome. The service was excellent. The eggs Benedicts were perfect. All the food is made from fresh ingredients. I would recommend this place any day. I'm not sure though that it's would... More

Waited in line for table on a busy January morning while I waited for a colleague to arrive to join me. I was at the front of the queue and the small 2 seat table in the place was just vacating. Rather then give me the table the waitress walked right past me at the head of the line and... More

I found this place by Googling gluten free breakfast in Calgary. When we got there, we had a bit of a wait to get a table. It's a small, cozy, cute cafe and not a lot of seating, although they do have as many tables crammed in as possible. Because of that, I'd say it's not wheel-chair accessible, too crowded.... More

I stopped in here with one of my girlfriends on a Tuesday morning following a night shift. It wasn't overly busy (about 5 open tables when we arrived) but filled up shortly after we ordered. This place is cute, welcoming and we were served quickly. My friend is celiac - and they have plenty of gluten free options. Breakfast was... More

Dairy Lane has great options for all meals of the day, breakfast, lunch and supper. The staff is always very friendly and attentive. The kitchen staff is happy to modify their food for any dietary restrictions. The food is very good quality for the price, and is always delicious.

Very tasty breakfast, lunch and supper options and service is very good. Perfect place for a casual family dinner, or get together with friends. Restaurant fills up very quickly due to the small size of the place though.

Hadn't been here for a while and was glad not only to be back but to find it was just as good as ever. I met a friend here at 10 AM - a good time to be there since it's between the breakfast and lunch crowds. I had the breakfast sandwich which is always good. My friend had a... More

Our relatives in Calgary took us to this small, neighbourhood cafe. They have been several times and raved about the food. I was skeptical as we entered as it is a compact space. Yes, the tables are fairly tight but it made for a cosy atmosphere. The staff were efficient and friendly. And the "rellies" were right.... the food was... More

I have been going to this spot for years and it used to be a favourite for breakfast and burgers, but I won't be returning any time soon. The last several times I have gone to Dairy Lane we have left disappointed with the service. Our table has had consistently poor experiences with the same server. Unfriendly and rude at... More
