This is a small but quaint little diner that features all-day breakfasts and burgers, shakes and sandwiches. Service is quick, attentive and courteous and meals are generous portion sizes. Not cheap but you won't walk away feeling hungry either. Everything on the menu costs $12-16 basically - pretty standard these days. I'll definitely go back because I prefer the atmosphere... More

I really like Galaxy and have been coming for over 10 years to this diner. They have a great breakfast menu, and very good service as well. They only reason I give 4 starts instead of 5 is that as their reputation proceeds them it is always crazy busy, and you have to wait outside for a very long time... More

Good breakfast. Spent a week in Calgary and made sure I visited this diner twice. On one of the visits we did bring our baby, and though the staff was super accommodating I wouldn't recommend bringing a toddler+ here. Far too busy, and the wait times get worse as people wake from their night of earning a greasy breakfast. Just... More

I visited this after a quick search on google. It was awesome and the montreal omelette hit the spot, definitely has a nice vibe to it. I will no doubt return here during my 4 day stop over and can't recommend this place highly enough.

I went to Galaxie for breakfast this past Thursday for a special catch up breakfast with one of my closest friends. The food was good, however I probably had the worst service experience I've ever had in a restaurant. I actually never write negative reviews for businesses but this was so upsetting I needed to say something. I ordered a... More

Well, there are only about four tables, and room for maybe a dozen people to sit altogether, but it's got a great menu of salty breakfast choices. There was a lineup when we arrived and it was even longer when we left, so that's always a good sign. The prices are crazy compared to any regular greasy spoon, but it... More

Bring a big appetite. Portions here are large - they have all you can eat hash-brown potatoes. We had the burrito, the breakfast sandwich and the French toast. All really good. They have real maple syrup! The best! They even have real milkshakes - ice cream and milk! Delicious! They even made a maple flavoured milkshake (ice cream, milk and... More

Description
The Galaxie recalls classic diners of the 1940s, with cooks grilling and plating in an open kitchen and patrons seated at vintage wooden booths. When it's busy, which is most of the time, a line for seats extends out the front door. The diner has become as much a local gathering place as a breakfast joint. We specialize in feeding friends, families, and hangovers.
