Great little diner with an excellent breakfast. Went on a Sunday, mid-morning, at it's clear the locals love it. Filled up fast. The only disappointment was the Flapper Pie (yes - friend ordered it because he'd never had it before) - the custard was way too sweet. Wonderful service and a great way to start the morning.

Went for the grilled chicken burger. Should have been called the butterfly regrilled chicken. The chicken breast was half warm half cold and looked lost on a tiny bread bun.

This is s perfect rendition of a 60s diner complete with uncomfortable lumpy vinyl booths and Formica tabletops. The food was ok but to be fair we just had a couple of simple sandwiches - tuna and blt. Fun experience!

Been wanting to go here for a long time but with one trip back to Regina a year I haven't had the time. Went for lunch on July 1st with a friend. No liquor license so no beer! We each had a Diet Coke in an old timey glass bottle. My pal had the club sandwich. It looked good but... More

This cafe is a lot of fun from its checkered decor to its tasty milkshakes. It's a great, inexpensive diner that even has Coke in a glass bottle and Double Bubble as an after-dinner treat.

My friends and I meet at The Mercury every couple of weeks for breakfast on the weekend. The menu is basic and that's a good thing first thing in the morning. If you're looking for bacon and eggs at a decent price and no frills, this is the place for you.

This is the kind of place that you kind of just wonder into one night when you walking around and figure what the H I have never been in here. I will be back again they make a pretty good burger

I brought a friend over for supper, as I thought the food was delicious, but we were not impressed. My friend's Mozzarella sticks were way overcooked, and they had no marinara sauce to go along, only ranch and honey dill. One of the stick was hollow! We both had the bacon cheese burger, and it was ok. The patty felt... More
