a Fraser Highway diner gem

The Prairie Cafe has been around since 1949 and was recently taken over by new owners. The menu mixes both traditional diner fare / comfort food (all-day breakfasts, soups, burgers, wraps) with noodle and Chinese dishes, and most everything seems to be very reasonably priced between $5 and $7. Seating is a mix of tables and booths; everything is spotlessly clean and ambiance is bright. On the morning I visited I had a Denver Omelette ($5.99), which came with two pieces of toast and your choice of shredded hash browns or pan fries. Coffee, with free refills, was $1.50. Everything was good, attractively presented on nice tableware, and given the classic concept of vintage diners as "greasy spoons" I can honestly say the food was not at all greasy. The kitchen was kept busy by a steady stream of patrons. Service was excellent - both prompt and friendly.
The new owners even introduced themselves, and very friendly people. They explained that they were long-time customers of the Prairie Cafe themselves, and working on updating the interior decor. The Cafe would seem to have a good rapport with its patrons, as regulars on a first-name basis with the staff were among those visiting the same morning as myself. I enjoyed my visit and will return, and for any fans of classic cafes / diners this 60 year old gem is definitely worth seeking out. Parking is out back, and payment is by cash or debit at this time.
