Best Diners Brunches in Calgary?

I have a list of favorites; Diner Delux, Blackfoot Diner, Brunch at Smugglers (as long as you arrive early) but would like to sample more. Where are your favorite Brunch/Diners in Calgary?

  1. 99th avenue cafe, for sure. it's not quite a diner (in the retro or greasy spoon sense), they serve up the best breakfast in south calgary... AND, it's CHEAP. see my review here:

    1. My votes for diner style brunch: Diner Deluxe, Dairy Lane, and Avenue Diner.

      Lots of comments on these previous brunch in Calgary threads.

      Avenue Diner

      Dairy Lane Cafe
      319 19 St NW, Calgary, AB T2N 2J2, CA

      Diner Deluxe

      1. The Ranche in Fish Creek park does an awesome Sunday brunch.

        1. Can't beat the Dairy Lane!

          Also quite good are 1886 in Eau Claire, and for a great change of pace try Pfanntastic Pannenkoek Haus non Crowchild Tr S!

            1886 is one of the worst breakfasts i've had in calgary. $15 for cold, hard potatoes, pale eggs, and no meat? no thanks!

            1. re: nonlinear

              The burrito I recently had there was quite tasty but, yes, very pricey, $18 I think.

          2. Gotta check it out everyone!!!

            My taste buds were tantalized by the diversity and fun-ness of the brunch selections!
