“It’s stuff your mom would have made, but how lucky would you have been if your mom made cassoulet?” says co-owner Brendan Bankowski with a chuckle, when he describes The Beltliner’s menu. “We want to elevate the diner game by using better techniques and quality products made by people who care and who went to school for it.”

By that, he means sourcing the food locally, buying fresh ingredients and knowing the local farmers who produce the meats and vegetables they serve rather than cooking with processed ingredients.

A look at the menu shows just how The Beltiner puts this spin on diner staples and takes the flavour up multiple notches. Bored with sausage and eggs? Then start the day with the zing of merguez lamb sausage, soft-boiled eggs and spicy tomato sauce served in a hot skillet. Or choose the sensory overload of French toast stuffed with fresh homemade, fruit “space jam” and ricotta. The diner's meatloaf sandwich features a mix of pork and bison produced in the Cremona, Alberta area. Keeping up with health-conscious customers, there are also many vegetarian and gluten-free entree options on the menu.

    Waffles of wonder in Calgary

    Waffles of wonder in Calgary

    Amped-up diner comfort food is the star attraction at The Beltliner. Try a simple waffle with syrup at breakfast or traditional Southern chicken and waffles in the evening. This Beltline hotspot is always bustling during the day, but is becoming known as a haven for cheap brown liquor drinks and quiet meals as the day gets late.

    Superior seafood: Lobster you'll love in Calgary

    Superior seafood: Lobster you'll love in Calgary

    Who says lobster can only be enjoyed at lunch and dinner? A diner-style restaurant open morning until night, visit The Beltliner to dive into some tasty lobster at breakfast time. The lobster eggs Benedict is served with two poached eggs on English muffins, lobster, cream cheese, tobiko and house-made hollandaise. The place also makes a mean lobster mac and cheese. Pair either dish with a glass of brunch punch on Saturdays and Sundays.

    Golden delicious: Whisky bars in Calgary

    Golden delicious: Whisky bars in Calgary

    Considering a Corona is $7 at the average pub, rare and high-quality whisky for $5 an ounce is a steal. Beltliner is a contemporary diner that’s as good for classic brunch as it is for a dinner of comfort dishes like meatloaf and chicken and waffles. Its whisky list focuses on quality over quantity. This selection includes about 30 carefully selected whiskies that are not your typical Jack Daniel’s or Jameson’s, plus more rare finds on the shelf.
