Curry yam Thai soup bursting with flavour, accompanied by garlic bread. Great start. BSD burger patty very soft. Like it or don't. Whole grain burger bun too dry. Excellent fries and sweet potato fries. Good service.

Great place for brunch, lunch or dinner. Located in a centrally located neighbourhood, it's a short walk from the Zoo and well worth it. FYI, there is usually a wait for Sunday Brunch.

Blue Star is my go-to for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I crave the BSD veggie burger, and they are not stingy with their fries. The breakfast/brunch on the weekend is also awesome. I don't think I've ever had anything here I didn't like. High quality, fresh, local food and drinks. Service is generally very good too.

Food was good but not great. Noticed a menu change and went for breakfast. Service was a little slow this morning as well but this just seems to be the case in Calgary

We were lucky enough to have a table right away. Delicious menu so it was hard to narrow down a brunch type meal. Ordered the breakfast burrito with chicken sausage. The order was so large, had to take 1/2 home. This is my 6th or 7th time here and it is so worth it. Most of the items on the... More

Great place to go for lunch or breakfast on bridgeland, food is fresh and they use lots of local products which is awesome, service is always great. Love the coffee, I always get the mex style omelette which is very yummy.

We had been recommended this diner by our friend's son, it's very popular at 10am on new years day (we popped down the road for a wander as they messaged when our table was free) you can't book which is understandable with such a popular and friendly diner, it's not a huge place so be prepared to wait. But it's... More

We've been several times for breakfast/brunch. The food is always top notch - fresh ingredient made to order - and the service has always been great and super friendly. I especially like the juevos rancheros. We've never felt rushed and always leave well fed and caffeinated. 🙂

Three of us had a great meal, service was good. Relaxed atmosphere. Friendly staff low background music, some of which bordered on irritating. My companions didn't even notice it. A thumping techno pop beat, not my bag.
