Eating breakfast in a diner is one of life's little pleasures, especially when the food is beautifully cooked, the portions are generous and the menu covers all the bases. And when there's a line of people waiting patiently to be seated in your chosen eaterie, you know it must be good. Diner Deluxe is one such establishment, offering delicious, simple food made with locally sourced, sustainably produced ingredients in a classic, diner-style atmosphere.

The breakfast menu includes a wide range of options, such as Breakfast Poutine with Quebec cheese curds and rosemary hash browns, four different varieties of eggs benedict, skillets of hash browns and scrumptious pancakes. Double smoked bacon, chorizo sausage, maple chicken and BBQ pulled pork can be added to most menu items for an additional two or three dollars. Everything is prepared fresh on the premises and the majority of menu items can be produced gluten-free.

We chose one of the day's specials, red velvet pancakes with blueberries and mascarpone, and banana pancakes stacked three high with maple syrup, washed down with tea and coffee. Our bill came to about CN$40, with most main items costing between CN$10 and CN$18 each.

Salads, sandwiches and a small mains menu are available at lunchtime.

Despite being busy, the serving staff are excellent and very attentive, topping up your tea or coffee and giving plenty of encouragement when you've reached capacity and haven't quite finished that third pancake.

Pancake breakfast at Diner Deluxe
Weekend brunches are particularly popular at the Diner Deluxe on Macleod Trail in the north east of Calgary, where we have eaten on a couple of occasions. The restaurant has been retrofitted quite recently, and has the feel of a classic diner with vinyl chairs in blue and red, old-fashioned metal number plates and signs on the walls and a big picture window looking out on to the street. Due to the popularity of this Diner, reservations are not possible.

A second Diner Deluxe is located at Aspen Glen Landing in south west Calgary, where reservations are accepted.
