First: NOT a fancy place, but expect big portions and good service. Food is old-timey diner fare: heavy on comfort and reliability. Surprisingly decent steak--especially for the price. Good breakfasts. Unpretentious and satisfying---classic diner experience.

This place is great. It is a no frills approach to good diner food at a reasonable price. Just don't expect to show up and be seated. This place is always busy, the service is efficient and the food always good.

Traditional diner food; large portions, not outstanding but decent with quick service. I had eggs Benedict which were okay but hollandaise sauce was bright yellow, little flavour and too much of it. My companions had omelettes which looked very good.

The service was good and the food was plentiful, really big portions I ordered the omelette and pancakes on the side it was all very tasty and for a good price. The strawberry milkshake was quite simply amazing probably one of the best I've... More

We decided to try this place because the parking lot was fairly busy...usually a good sign. But, unfortunately, the food was horrible. The coffee tasted like mud, the eggs were overcooked and the "hash browns" were absolutely disgusting. Very disappointing for the price. Would not recommend.

This place was great: free parking in front, nice breakfast selection, booth seating, quick service, and generous tasty portions. You can't go wrong. I had the omelette of the day with hash browns and toast for $8.50. The coffee was good as well. Looking for a good breakfast place, do check this place out.

Typically I'm here for breakfast, but it's great for anytime of the day! Always great and fast service, a laid back atmosphere, and unique and interesting décor of course. I've never had anything but great food and excellent experience.

Not from Edmonton so stopped here for breakfast after a quick online search of local breakfast spots. It looks a little rough from the outside but the inside has a cool diner feel to it. The service was excellent including quick coffee refills which I appreciate. Had the farmers breakfast which was a lot of food for what you pay.... More

My family and I go to Route 99 for breakfast once in a while. Service is always prompt and friendly and the food is consistently good. The place is certainly not fancy but has an old school diner feel to it. I've also had lunch and the sandwiches are good too. Never been for supper.

Thank Montos2
