When I return from Edmonton I always try to stop in at Glenn’s. it is an awesome restaurants for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or a late night snack that is more than filling. The restaurant is super clean, very well managed, excellent customer service and Awesome menu choices. This late evening I tried the senior burger + onion rings - not the best diet meal.....but oh.....it was Yummmy and Delicious. Yes for feeding me at 9:40 pm. My server was excellent there was not a problem ...as they were just shutting down and cleaning up for the evening. On gasoline ally going south this is the Best food. Many Tks.

$3.75 for a cup of tea is maybe okay but it was a little confusing to get it. I am sure they never had tea available to drink there last time I was there but Glenn said it was 11 years ago when they did not serve tea. The gift shop is strictly for people with a lot of money or tourists. I would not pay $10 for a tiny bottle of maple syrup or $700 for a statue of a cheatah. To their credit they have every kind of tea you could probably want.

We, myself, husband and son (21 months old), often stop here on our way to Calgary, it has great home cooking, and a homey, old school diner atmosphere. This was probably the third or fourth time we have visited with our son.

We sat in a booth, with our son in a booster seat. I got breakfast food (all day breakfast!), my husband got a reuben, and my son got the kids mac and cheese. There's actually a huge selection for kids that ranges from pancakes/eggs to chicken fingers. Kids meals include a drink.

Our waitress was very accommodating, bringing our son a cup with a lid/straw to drink his juice from, bringing an extra plate to divide out a small amount of his meal, and giving us wet wipes for cleaning up.

Our food was delicious, and we will go back. It is a bit pricey for some items on the menu, but you can find items that are a good value. Portions are large.
