First time here for a change, although we often stop at other restaurants at Gasoline Alley. Obviously the restaurant has been refurbished and looks very smart with its dark red upholstery even though some of the tables were hard to get into. The bathrooms were modern and clean. The older waitress (most were) was not entirely enthusiastic. The meals were... More

Came here during Thanksgiving time and their Thanksgiving Turkey dinner was good. Good service and friendly staff. They have a huge selection of teas - biggest one I have seen. If you are tea lover, this is a place to check out.

Such a great family atmosphere. The tea selection is unreal! My kids love it here as they get their own little pot and cookie with their tea. Great food too. I especially love the breakfast buffet on weekend. So good! Amazing service here always. Great place for large or small groups. Sidenote, the bathrooms are amazing! Huge and comfortable. Thanks...

Loved the tea and soup. Hubby lived his sandwich and sweet potato fries. Perfect spot for a quiet dinner or lunch. Was so good ordered more to go.

This will always be my favourite spot in town for breakfast especially in the summer time when you can sit on the beautiful patio area. The food is consistent, the staff are super friendly and the washrooms are straight out of a 5 star hotel. You shouldn't need convincing to eat here it's that good!

I ate an early lunch here on my way to Calgary. I visited the gift shop first then decided i was hungry for the breakfast I hadn't yet eaten. Thankfully breakfast is available at this restaurant outside typical breakfast hours. I had the regular breakfast with bacon and ham, toast & hash browns. The food was good and the portions... More

Stopped here based on reviews. Menu has a good variety with dishes to please everyone. Service seemed friendly enough. We specifically asked about the grilled cheese. Wanted to ensure it was not plastic cheese slices, and was assured it was real cheese. What did we get? Plastic grilled cheese. Most of the food seems to be GFS or Sysco commercial... More

We had a wonderful breakfast and proper tea in a proper pot as my hubby says. He had English breakfast tea and I had cream earl grey tea. He had bacon and eggs with cubed hash browns and I had French toast and bacon. The bacon could've been more crispy but was ok. There is a breakfast buffet but we... More

The drive between Edmonton and Calgary is somewhere around 3 hours plus or minus and a break close to the middle is very nice. Glenn's is a comfortable non -quick -food place for a good meal and, if you enjoy teas or tissues you have a choice of well over 200 choices. The food is fairly good if somewhat uninspired... More
