You can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner in this cozy eatery located at the south end of the High Level Bridge, just a few blocks from the university campus. A casual, relaxed atmosphere, funky murals on the walls, and a great selection of healthy, tasty food have made this one of Edmonton's busiest restaurants. International favourites include Souvlaki, Tabbouleh, Quesadillas and Jambalaya. If you are vegetarian, or an aspiring one, choose from a variety of dishes, like the Spinach Pie or the Black Bean Chili.
We have been visiting the Highlevel Diner for several years. The service and food are always consistent and excellent. Now with young kids at home we have used dial and dine to have food delivered and we order food to be picked up. It is fast and affordable.
With a unique atmosphere the High Level is one of my favourite restuarants in Edmonton. The low lights, classic hardwood tables and original art give the place a really cozy yet classy feel.
The menu ranges from the very simple fresh soups and quiches, to the classic restaurant burger, to more elaborate Meditteranian dishes. A better tabouhleh salad I have never tasted!
At least a couple times a year the High Level hosts my entire extended family - so the value is excellent as is the service. Finally, please don't forget to order the bread pudding for dessert. It's awesome!
The High-Level Diner had the reputation for years of being a break-fast institution, so when company was to be fed....company with a discerning palate and a desire for ambience was ready for breakfast, the High-level was our destination.
Arrival on a Sunday, post-church crowd, afforded us a 22 minute wait. The aromas coming out the kitchen promised us satifaction for our time. My companion had the breakfast burrito, pork sausages, sadly, were quite unremarkable and dessicated. My Florentine Benedict was lacking adequate hollandaise sauce (and don't we all know that bennies are mere vehicles for h-sauce?). The eggs although poached to my liking (hard), seemed vulcanized around the edges...
All in all, the meal was fair, but certainly not what I remember enjoying and expecting from this once unique and rewarding spot. Our city is lesser with the loss of this once sure and charming breakfast nook.
My first visit to the Diner was a great experience. I liked the friendliness of the people and staff, and the good service. I ordered the Spinach Pie with Tabouleh Salad and coffee. It was all just excellent. The only problem was parking! I guess you already know about that! Hope to dine there next time I'm in the city. I would certainly recommend The High Level Diner to friends. I thought the prices were excellent, the servings generous and the environment warm and cosy.
Everything about this place, from the incredible food to the quirky atmosphere make this a great eatery at any time of day. Highly recommended! Great for a nice lunch, but the breakfast is why I keep coming back. Love it!!!
The Highlevel Diner is a favorite of mine for reasons including atmosphere, location, and the good food. Rustic is a good word for the decor, and the food choices are interesting and reasonably priced, and they have everything from burgers to veggie curry.
It seems every third time I go something is wrong. Food is good, healthy tasting, decent value - but not amazing.
Was once served a soup which was not the one I ordered (did not match the description at all) but the waiter said it was the soup that we ordered rather than admitting the it was the only type of soup left...)
Last time had great evening service (waitress).
