If you’re in the mood for breakfast, Red’s Diner is the place to go! Just on the shoulder of downtown this popular and trendy 4th Street Diner is sure to become one of your favorite spots.
Targeting the breakfast, brunch and lunch crowd, this bright and cheerful eatery, with exposed brick, modern art and rustic hardwood, exudes a comfortable feel. They offer all-day breakfast, with great food prepared in-house from scratch, friendly staff and “bottomless” cups of coffee.
On the traditional side of the menu, one of our favourites is the Prairie Breakfast Plate. Two eggs cooked to your liking with homemade potato cheddar perogies, Rocky’s Kielbasa and sour cream, sided with Red’s potatoes and toast. Now that’s a meal!
Red’s is also has quite a reputation for their Eggs Benedict, a best seller. With four selections to choose from we chose the 4th Street Benny, served on a toasted English muffin with spinach, artichoke, tomato and homemade hollandaise.
Hot off the griddle the Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes are a sure winner. Three huge cakes are served with whipped butter and a side of genuine Canadian Maple Syrup. We topped ours off with a side of the field berry compote. These were possibly some of the best pancakes we’ve had.
With lots of great lunch choices we descended on the Reuben sandwich. Grilled marble rye is loaded with lean Montreal smoked meat, sauerkraut, then smothered with melted Swiss cheese with your choice of mustard. Normally served with Red’s famous fries, but you might want to “poutine it” for a real treat.
The restaurant offers an almost timeless classic feel, serving farm fresh home made classics with a modern twist. It is a true local’s favourite, and lines are running out the door for breakfast—so get there early on weekends. Try the “Nowait” app and avoid the lineup.
