I had to run to Red Deer to a meeting and decided to eat before I go back to Edmonton. I quickly googled the area and glad Glenn's popped up as a local spot. Beautiful dinner, clean rest room, wonderful friendly staff and super fresh hot food cooked just as I ordered. I had coffee and the western omelet with... More

Have been here numerous times and each time it is excellent. They have an amazing selection of teas- you can order a pot of tea in the restaurant and they will bring it with a yummy tea cup shaped cookie. They will provide a to-go cup so that you can take any that is left over with you. Any of... More

We were staying across at the Holiday Inn and just thought Glenn's looked cute for a change of pace from hotel food so we gave it a try and my husband so hated that decision...I took me longer to read and decide from the tea menu then it did for him to look at the menu, decide, order, receive and...

My wife and I enjoy popping in on the weekends for tea (the tea menu is larger than most restaurant food menus) and deserts. The weekend brunch is always worth it. Service and food both are a real treat. Owned and operated by the same family who started it decades ago, Glenns is a place I recommend often.

My main reason to visit Glenn's is to purchase loose tea. They have the best selection and it's much less expensive than other Tea Suppliers. Of course, we can't drive all that way and not stay for lunch. They have a varied selection on the menu, and the service is always fantastic. Thank you Glenn's for a very pleasant experience.

Located on the West side of "Gasoline Alley" in Red Deer, this place is an excellent place to stop off for a couple or with kids. The food here is consistently very good the service is excellent. Breakfast is served all day If you can spare the time for a sit down meal, Glens is the place to eat.

Stopped by for breakfast on the road from Calgary to Edmonton on a Monday morning for breakfast. This place on the highway just around Red Deer.
