Service was abismal, the whole cafe didn't look super clean considering it had just had a 'make over'. My husband ordered a breakfast, the hash browns didn't even looked cooked, I had 'homemade soup of the day' - which was supposed to be beef/vegetable, dishwater and canned tomatoes would have been a better description - terrible. Hot water tasted as... More

Love the new and improved Bluejay! The restaurant looks like a whole new diner, the new owner is very friendly, and the kitchen staff is really good at what they do.

for a long time this cafe was my favourite place to eat in Edson, even a quick lunch or breakfast on the way through.the gravy was made from a beef roast and was used for sandwich, poutine etc. so good. HOWEVER, the last time I was there, no gravy (they didn't know what I was talking about) and was told... More

Not the greatest place to eat in Edson, server didn't care too much to seat me, I guess when you eat here you're supposed to just know to seat yourself. Seems to be a place local seniors like to go, considering the other options Old timers afraid of new places or healthy food must love this place. Not very clean,... More

Perhaps not the cheapest place to eat breakfast but the portions are better then average. Expect to pay 8-10 bucks for a complete breakfast, the place is also pretty popular for lunch.

Ripped seats, dirty tables, the Reuben was lacking meat terribly. They used margarine on the toast, not butter. One waitress was so rude to a customer at the next table, telling them "You'll get what you're given" and " You talk too much" I could tell that the recipient of this verbal abuse was appalled. I won't go back.

I'm not sure I'd call this place a cafe. It's more like a diner that only serves breakfast and lunch. Here is where you go when you have the need for greasy food at a good price! The menu is very large with lots of choices. There are a few "healthier" options but they are not their forte. You leave... More

Was a great family restaurant but has become pricey and I think their prices should have stayed the same but the portions reduced. Not very accommodating for me and I have been their breakfast customer during the week for years now.
