The Broadway Café in Saskatoon is a veritable eating institution, It has been serving up meals for well over three decades and it still remains one of the city's most popular eating spots. Walking into the restaurant is like a trip back in time to the 1950s with the walls festooned with photos and posters featuring Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and other stars of the time. There is still a lunch counter with round stools, red formica table tops, furnishings from the past -- a trip down Memory Lane. But the restaurant's popularity still rests on its hearty food, generous portions and affordability.

Having lived in Saskatoon for over 30 years, the Broadway Cafe has been a true gift! Expect a flashback to the 1950s diner style restaurant, complete with friendly waitresses, endless coffee pot refills, uncompromising breakfast with eggs done the perfect way, real hash browns and diced pan-fried potatoes, and crispy toast. Love the decor, and guests have been coming here for decades. The positive energy is palpable and I am so appreciative that they have not given into “modern” decor and menu, although I promise it is fully WOW for quality and service!

The Broadway Cafe was a nice restaurant with a pretty varied menu. We had lunch there and it was quite good. The service might have been a little slow and prices a little high for the menu selections, but the portions were a good size and it has a quirky feel.

We stoppesld in for a late lunch. It was busy. Service started well then fell apart. They missed the sweet potato fries and took 10 minutes to make them. The fish and chips had two frozen fillets. Coffee refill took 5 minutes. My rueben sandwich was good.

Stopped for lunch on the way out of Saskatoon. Lovely retro feel, posters and signs and nostalgia everywhere. Could use a lick of paint and a clean up or upgrade of the floors and get rid of the carpet! My Mom had a burger with mushrooms, the beef patty was just perfect, all meat, no visible filler and very tasty. Sweet potato fries were excellent as well, especially dipped in blue cheese dressing. I had the hot roast beef dinner.... beef was excellent, gravy was exceptionally tasty! Home fries were yummy and the salad was crisp and fresh, even the tomatoes were ripe! Service was friendly and pleasant and felt welcome! All in all a good experience!
