I love food. I love breakfast food. I also love finding new local places to get both those things. Rockin’ Robyn’s Diner is a special little place that has the best eggs I’ve ever had. That’s not an exaggeration, either. It’s hard to make a perfect over-hard egg, and they have mastered it. Combine that with all-day breakfast, daily specials, and the perfect 50s theme and you have the perfect place for breakfast and lunch.
Lunch time is always busy, and you may have to wait for a place to sit, but trust me, it’s worth it. The hand-cut fries and ridiculously large pan-fries are done in-house, as are the pies, fried chicken, soups, fish and chips, beef chili, dinner buns and cinnamon buns. They also do a lot of their own sauces. It’s crazy! There’s a reason everything here tastes so good. They try to do as much as possible themselves.
Open from Wednesday to Monday (closed Tuesdays) from 700-400, this is one place you don’t want to pass up, especially if you’re in the west end. They’re located in the strip mall next to the Mayfield Hotel (16604 B 109 Ave), and it can be easy to miss. It’s a tiny place that big on flavour and on personality. If you have a chance to go, don’t pass it up. You won’t be disappointed.
I recommend the eggs, bacon, sausage (it’s amazing!) and hash browns, and Shawn is a big fan of the corned beef hash, but trust me, there is something on the menu for everyone.
