Very tasty breakfast, lunch and supper options and service is very good. Perfect place for a casual family dinner, or get together with friends. Restaurant fills up very quickly due to the small size of the place though.

Hadn't been here for a while and was glad not only to be back but to find it was just as good as ever. I met a friend here at 10 AM - a good time to be there since it's between the breakfast and lunch crowds. I had the breakfast sandwich which is always good. My friend had a... More

Our relatives in Calgary took us to this small, neighbourhood cafe. They have been several times and raved about the food. I was skeptical as we entered as it is a compact space. Yes, the tables are fairly tight but it made for a cosy atmosphere. The staff were efficient and friendly. And the "rellies" were right.... the food was... More

I have been going to this spot for years and it used to be a favourite for breakfast and burgers, but I won't be returning any time soon. The last several times I have gone to Dairy Lane we have left disappointed with the service. Our table has had consistently poor experiences with the same server. Unfriendly and rude at... More

I have tried coming here for breakfast a couple of times after reading some great reviews online but was never able to get in cause was always packed. I am glad to say I finally made it in today & am so glad I did. I tried the garlic fried mushrooms & spinach benny with hash browns when the dish... More

Date night tonight and the restaurant we planned to hit up has closed. Turned out to be a blessing in disguise because I found Dairy Lane on google searching for restaurants that support local producers. Menu looked good online so we headed over, got a table right away too. Started with the bruschetta, which was phenomenal. Ordered the Chorizo Pork... More

This bustling cafe in Calgary serves some of the best brunch in the city. Sit either out on their patio on a warmer morning or in their diner style cafe. The staff are warm with plenty of good eats suggestions. They top up your morning coffee to ensure you've got a good start to your day. I'd recommend one of... More

The café was very busy with a line-up to get inside. The service was good but I thought the food took longer than it should have to be served. Once it arrived, it was very tasty and the helpings were sufficient to fill you up.

Our family has been coming to this restaurant for about 5 years. The food is consistently excellent, but tonight the service was atrocious. To be fair, the girl who brought out all our food was attentive, but the other two girls who took our drink and food orders were clearly more interested in watching the olympics on their phone at...

My daughter Came across this place on the Calgary Celiac website. The GF fried check caught her eye. We decided to check it out. What a great find! Little retro cafe filled with locals. Amazing staff. Lots of GF options. The fried chicken did not disappoint.
