Service is always friendly and the place is always busy! It's quick as you order up front and then they bring you your meal. I always get the eggs benny and it is always consistent, fresh, and hot. Prices are excellent. You get what you pay for and I like the fact you can always order a half size. Definately... More

You walk in, and there's the menu on a large chalkboard, with one copy of the paper menu detailing the items up at the till. You line up, order, pay, then are seated, they will bring the food to you. I didn't really like this style of ordering. Sort of complicated and awkward. We had cinnamon swirl French toast, hashbrowns... More

This is a good place for breakfast. It's cheap and a decent portion. I don't however like the ordering and paying at the counter prior to getting the food. Sometimes the service is great, sometimes not so much yet I have to tip before I even experience it.

One of our favourite restaurants on our road trip. Really worth making the stop. Very friendly service, helpful and pleasant. Like most small restaurants the locals really appreciate this place and support it. Lots of choices on the menu, 1/2 orders available, home made hash brown. Come in and order at the counter which can be slow and get backed... More

You queue up to order your food. And pay. Wait for a table. Get seated. Awesome friendly staff keep you happy while waiting. Once seated, the food arrives promptly. Great meals. Good value. Happy staff. What more can one say. I note that this cafe appears on TripAdvisor as "Diner on 6th" which is a completely WRONG name. The correct... More

We are recent transplants to the Okanagan and have visited The Diner on 6th a number of times. It has been great every time. Friendly and efficient staff, and delicious breakfasts, especially the hash browns as others have mentioned. I like that they offer smaller portions of some of their menu items. Though we have not eaten a lunch here,... More

Always have great food and service. There is usually a line up if you go but the girls are really good at keeping the line moving and keeping your cup full with refills. You won't leave here disappointed.

This is a diner where you order at the counter as your arrive and everything is brought out. Thought the service was really good, friendly, prompt and attentive to our group of 6. Everyone ordered breakfast and all really enjoyed the meal. Big plates. Fantastic hash browns. Happy diners.
