Blue Star Diner - YYC

Dairy Lane has expanded and has now opened a location in Bridgeland...819 1 Ave NE. I plan to hit it on the weekend...but from what I;ve heard so far - the menu is similar to the tried and true location in West Hillhurst. Open for breakkie and lunch.

    1. fwiw the CHR has them listed at 809 1st Av NE.

      1. Was in there for lunch earlier this week and it is a beautiful space. Very similar menu to the Dairy Lane, but with some slight changes to leave their own impressions; ie: Red potatoe hash browns and lamb burger instead of turkey on the menu.

        My guest had a Ukrainian breakfast plate with eggs, home made perogies, and awesome farmers kielbassa. Another welcome addition to the menu! I had their lamb burger and it too was excellent, whatever the sweet and spicy jelly/spread it had on it I absolutely loved with the feta and lamb and it was served with delicious red gazpacho on the side.

        Have to recommend it, same good quality of food and excellent service you expect from the Dairy Lane with some more seating to boot!

        1. I would have given this a FIVE star rating but the din made my ears bleed. I was perilously close to SCREAMING at my lunch companion in order to be heard.

          Go off-peak (11 am or 2:00 pm) to enjoy the astonishing corn/bean chowder. It is tantalizingly spicy. Usually diners jam out on punch. Not here.

          Tasty and satisfying. Oh! The gluten free bread is good, too.

          1. is this room bigger than Dairy Lane? I don't go there because it's so small, and the waitresses for some reason won't let you eat outside in the morning (they claim your food will get cold...)

            1. re: nonlinear

              I've never been to Dairy Lane but they're situated in Artisan Bistro's former location. There is NO outside seating (you're across from the 7-11 on 1st Avenue NE) to speak of but you might be able to enjoy their lunch as a take-out item and sit in the park just a block south of the place...

                I think you may be confused - Dairy Lane is in West Hillhurst and there is most definitely outside seating.
