Atmosphere: 1950s style retro diner which transports you in time.
Price Range: Mid $10s
Food: After a quick peek at the menu I decided on the Pacific Omelet, which consists of BC Smoked salmon with fresh spinach, cream cheese stuffed inside the omelet and served with hash browns and toast. It was a good sized omelet with lots of hash and whole wheat toast on the side making for quite the portion. All the ingredients are classic and go well together, it combined the best of both worlds, fluffy eggs with lox and cream cheese. I enjoyed the addition of spinach and wouldn’t have minded a bit more just to get my greens in for the meal.
I had a couple bites of my husband’s Montreal Smoked Meat Hash and it was amazing! So flavourful! Loved how they crisped up the meat and sautéed the hash with onions, banana peppers and mushrooms. It was salty and spicy coupled with a nice crunch from the crispy smoked meat and the creamy yolks from the fried eggs. We really enjoyed the addition of banana peppers and will definitely be stealing that idea for home.
We couldn’t leave without trying one of their homemade milkshakes which comes in flavours apple pie, malt, classic vanilla. We opted for the coconut, which was super tasty. It came with lots of chunky coconut pieces but still nice and creamy.

My Pick: Montreal Smoked Meat Hash
Overall: I can see why there’s always a line up at Galaxie because the food here is worth the wait. I’m looking forward to trying their other signature dishes in the future and who knows maybe I’ll luck out again with the seating. If not, they do serve coffee for those that are waiting!
