“WHIFS - wonderful hospitality, intense fruit and amazing service”
Reviewed 23 August 2010

As mentioned before it is an acronym for Waffles, hamburgers etc but this little treasure of a restaurant was a real treat for us. We go to Drumheller every year and have our favourites but didn't know this place existed until now. It will be a regular stop for us every year. I had peach melba waffles and my girls had waffles with other various fruits and it was absolutely delicious. The staff were so friendly and efficient, our waitress went around with a coffee pot and a hot water pot for tea topping everyone's cups as she went by. Although we had one waitress, we were served by others who were happy to top up our cups too. They were very busy, and buzzing but all of the servers seemed really pleasant, punctual and efficient. The food was amazing and the portions were rediculously huge but the friendly service is just what you need when travelling. I loved this place and even thought the outside of the building was charming - it's old. The inside is very cozy and the train is a real hoot! - if you go to Drumheller - check out this restaurant - you won't be disappointed. I learned of it's exsistence from a local I met on main street who recommended it - she was so right!!

“Would have eaten every meal here if found it sooner”
Reviewed 10 August 2010

This local spot offers great service, great food, great portions, and a fun atmosphere (kitchen tables and a toy train above your heads that runs while you eat). For a family of 4 we spent $50 including a generous tip and were stuffed to the gills with a great breakfast. We only nibbled the rest of the day. A definite stop when in Drumheller.

“Awesome”
Reviewed 12 May 2010

This place was great, the food was so good, it tasted all homemade and it was quick to. The waitresses were friendly and there was a train that went around the roof which was nice for my sons.

“Best Breakfast in Town”
Reviewed 17 March 2010

Whif's has the best breakfast in town - great omelettes, waffles, pancakes, homemade hashbrowns and all that is breakfast. Food is consistent and service is friendly. They also do a lunch with no-nonsense standards such as great burgers and sandwiches. There is a train track that runs along a track suspended from the ceiling - several trains used to run but now only one does. It still sparks an interest in the children, though - they all seem to enjoy it. It is busy with locals throughout the year which tells you a lot. One note - they are only open until 2:00 p.m. so make sure you get there before they close to experience it!
