It’s Breakfast Week! We’re serving up a heaping plateful of delicious stories about the most important meal of the day–and where to get it in Calgary.
All day, every day – that’s how we like our breakfast.
And there are a ton of Calgarians who like it that way too, or else there wouldn’t be a plethora of fantastic eateries serving the first meal of the day endlessly. For those of us who like to indulge in a plate of French toast at noon or an omelette mid-afternoon, we have options.
Here are 14 Calgary spots that serve all-day breakfast.
Famous for their buttermilk pancakes served with real maple syrup and whipped butter (often in the form of delightful cartoon characters) The Belmont Diner is the spot to go for an old-school breakfast anytime, any day.
Address: 2008 33rd Avenue SW
The only spot on our list where Calgarians can get breakfast 24/7 – the Blackfoot Diner is a total gem. Blackfoot has all your basics and more, including a Breakfast Bakery with offerings like cinnamon buns, butterhorns with butter, muffins, and tarts.
Address: 1840 9th Avenue SE

Any place we can order Stuffed French Toast all day long is top-notch in our books. Dairy Lane is one of those places, and diners here can also enjoy Breakfast Tostadas, a Vegan Scramble Breakfast Plate, and a variety of omelettes.
Address: 319 – 19 Street NW
Diner Deluxe offers all-day breakfast at its two locations and their menu includes items such as Maple Fried Oatmeal, Breakfast Poutine, the Deluxe Burrito, and the Meatloaf Hash. While you can always opt for the lunch menu at this spot as well, we don’t know why you would veer with dishes like this up for grabs.
The Fine Diner has a breakfast and brunch menu will dishes like Banana Bread French Toast, Pulled Pork Hash, and the Turkey Florentine Omelette. Try any of those or take a trip down “Benny Lane” and order one of their six droolworthy benedicts.

Galaxie Diner is “home of the all day breakfast”, so you gotta know this old-school joint makes a mean morning meal. With an epic breakfast burrito and the one-price unlimited-choice omelette on their menu, Galaxie always has a crowd of people in it enjoying breakfast no matter what time it is.
Address: 1413 11th Street SW

Address: 1301 10th Avenue SW
OEB breakfast is served from 6:30 am to 2 pm and it’s a can’t miss. The eggs at this spot are known for coming from organic and local purveyors, and that’s what makes their signature dishes like their BOX’D concoctions (eggs, potato, veggies, and proteins) so epic.
With locations in Mission, Ramsay, and the newly-opened Kensington spot – Red’s is a fan favourite when it comes to all-day breakfast. Try one of their four varieties of bennys or the blueberry, basil, and goat cheese-stuffed French toast. And it wouldn’t be Red’s unless you enjoyed this fare while sipping coffee from a mismatched mug.
