Kane’s Harley Diner – Calgary, Alberta

We got up really early this one morning to play a little prank on a friend. Afterwards, it was still really early and we were getting hungry, so we went to Inglewood, and went into Kane’s Harley Davidson Diner which is right on 9th Ave SE. It’s an old school looking diner from the outside, and there’s some street parking, especially if you go early.

Looking around the restaurant, it was pretty neatly decorated and I love the retro style of the place! Although bikes aren’t “my thing”, this was still an exciting place to go! They had other sorts of antiques around which made it fun for me!

I was quite hungry as mentioned, we got up early. I decided to go for their Biker Bowl which was a giant portion of hash browns topped with 2 eggs, ham, tomato, green onions, cheese and hollandaise sauce. To make the meal even bigger, it even came with toast! At first sight, it didn’t look like much, but as you keep digging into this bowl, you really notice how full you’ve become! It tasted really good and the hash browns were excellent, until the last one!

My husband ordered their Classic Fueler which was another large breakfast that consisted of 6oz of Alberta sirloin steak and 2 eggs, over hash browns. This “steak and egg” breakfast also comes with toast! The steak was well seasoned and cooked well! It was tender and flavourful, so it was perfect in our books.

Overall, the dining experience was quite a unique one! They really thought out the details from naming the dishes, to decorating the diner. The prices, that was awesome for the amount of food you get! We left here with a really full belly and we were really satisfied.

Dutch Bakery and Diner – Victoria, British Columbia

We got up really early the morning we were driving home and found a place called Dutch Bakery and Diner which wasn’t too far from our hotel. We decided to try them, and it worked out great as street parking was free still when we went!

We sat down and we were greeted by the friendliest staff, and it felt like you were in an old town diner once you got there. It was fantastic!! The menu wasn’t extensive, but the selection was still great!

I decided I would have their Uitsmyter which sounded “Dutch” to me, and I tried to get it as traditional as possible. Turns out, I ordered a giant silly face – ham and egg open faced sandwich with some hashbrowns! It tasted great and it was fun to eat the entire face up!

We also ordered something more standard to our culture, their Full Breakfast which was either ham or bacon, and in our case it was bacon, with eggs, hashbrowns and toast! Just because it sounds simple though, that’s where it’s important to have a good recipe and skills making it and they did an excellent job here!

Our breakfast was so amazing, we decided to grab a few treats for our ferry back to the mainland!! The bakery was a lot of fun, like any bakery really, but this one had so much stuff! I got a Chocolate Croissant to go and I actually ate it at the ferry terminal. It didn’t make it on board as it looked and smelled so amazing! It was delicious and the chocolate they used was decadent, but not so rich where I don’t like it! The texture was pretty good too, and I’m sure it would have been better had I enjoyed it at the diner.

We got another croissant as well, a savoury one, their Ham and Cheese Croissant and we got this as it was unique. Instead of plain or cheese, it had ham in it. It was actually amazing and as I’m writing about it now, I kind of wish I had one! The texture of this croissant was better actually, and with the ham and cheese, it was perfection! It doesn’t look like much, but she’s a gooder!

The final thing we bought on our way out was what they called a Flying Saucer Cookie and I got it because of the name. I took a bite of this and I fell in love! There’s nothing called “Flying Saucer” on the internet as I wanted to know more about it or prehaps try to make it. It’s got almond on it and a little filling. It was absolutely amazing, unique, and special! I really enjoyed it! So, be sure to stop by here for some flying saucers!!

Overall, this was one of the best and unique bakeries I’ve been to as it’s a bakery and diner mix! The food and service was amazing, the prices was fair as I found everything in Victoria just a tad more expensive. But the memories of the food we had here and the experience of flying saucers, it was worth it!

Eggoasis Crowfoot – Calgary, Alberta

We decided to go for breakfast at Eggoasis in Crowfoot where there was plenty of parking. The place is pretty big and before you know it – you’re waiting for a table. This place is busy, but their service isn’t that quick either – so just be prepared!

Once we got seated, I decided to order a Hot Chocolate with no whipped cream, and it came in a beautiful cup. It wasn’t as hot as I know hot chocolate to be – which meant it was cold by the time my meal got here. I guess if you asked for whipped cream, it would fill up the rest of the glass and probably insulate it better.

I didn’t know which Eggs Benedict I wanted, but I knew that was what I wanted to try. I ended up opting for their Forrester’s Eggs Benedict which was their eggs benny with mushrooms, swiss cheese and meat – where I picked sausages inside my eggs benny. It was tastier than it sounds! I asked for a soft poached egg and it came out perfect and runny! I wasn’t in love with the hollandaise sauce, but I really loved the potatoes!

My husband went for an omelette, he picked the Hunter’s Omelette which an omelette with bacon, ham and sausage and some Swiss cheese. He loved it and devoured it after he got some Tabasco sauce! It was tasty and the eggs was cooked really nicely!

Overall, it was a decent meal. It’s not the best, but also not the worse. The location was nice, the atmosphere was comfortable, and the prices was about average for a breakfast/lunch location. We enjoyed our company the most, and that was the best part of our visit!
