Good basic food, eggs, bacon, hash browns, toasts, and coffee, etc... Cozy interior, like in an old train car/old fashion greasy spoon. Unfortunately the place is getting insanely expansive, easy $40 for two. Bottomless coffee is a bonus. Crowded on Saturday mornings, come before 8:30 or wait and wait and wait...

Huge portion sizes. Food was fantastic. Was very busy when we went but quick turnaround time, well worth the wait. Great atmosphere.

Delicious giant portions. Quaint atmosphere. Reasonable prices for the amount of food on the plate! We were here for breakfast but I would love to try their lunch menu too. Real milkshakes!

It's basically a hole-in-the-wall type of restaurant. But don't be fooled, the food is simple and decent. Service was quick and friendly even though they were busy. It was a bit pricey, though.

Great location within walking distance of shopping. A 50's style diner. Prompt, Friendly helpful staff. Our order was taken quickly and our food arrived as ordered. Our meals were tasty and the atmosphere was great for a little afternoon date.

Galaxie Diner is always a place you must go for breakfast, at least once, when visiting Calgary. There is always a wait to get in but it flies by. The food is definitely worth the wait as well. I have never been let down with the service at Galaxie. The staff are friendly and always have a smile on their... More

This is a small but quaint little diner that features all-day breakfasts and burgers, shakes and sandwiches. Service is quick, attentive and courteous and meals are generous portion sizes. Not cheap but you won't walk away feeling hungry either. Everything on the menu costs $12-16 basically - pretty standard these days. I'll definitely go back because I prefer the atmosphere... More

I really like Galaxy and have been coming for over 10 years to this diner. They have a great breakfast menu, and very good service as well. They only reason I give 4 starts instead of 5 is that as their reputation proceeds them it is always crazy busy, and you have to wait outside for a very long time... More

Good breakfast. Spent a week in Calgary and made sure I visited this diner twice. On one of the visits we did bring our baby, and though the staff was super accommodating I wouldn't recommend bringing a toddler+ here. Far too busy, and the wait times get worse as people wake from their night of earning a greasy breakfast. Just... More

Description
The Galaxie recalls classic diners of the 1940s, with cooks grilling and plating in an open kitchen and patrons seated at vintage wooden booths. When it's busy, which is most of the time, a line for seats extends out the front door. The diner has become as much a local gathering place as a breakfast joint. We specialize in feeding friends, families, and hangovers.
