Interesting place with quirky posters and pictures on the wall. They have a small menu with good prices with homemade perogies and veggie or meat cabbage rolls and burgers. These were average good but the pie and borscht were excellent.

Delightfully strange homespun Canadian restaurant with burgers, perogi, cabbage rolls and grilled cheese loaded with butter. Worth the trip to Drumheller! Lovely couple running the place 31 years.
