Kamloops Trip: Denny’s – Breakfast

While in Kamloops, we had breakfast at Denny’s. It was the only restaurant we could find nearby which is opened that early. Anyway, Arkensen loves any breakfasts which has hash browns. When we were there, the restaurant were practically empty.

Did you know that Denny’s is largest full service family restaurant in North America? In Canada British Columbia, you can find Denny’s in almost every city and town.


We sat down and ordered 2 coffees ($3.98 each) and 2 frothy hot chocolates ($2.80 each). There are free refills for the coffee.


Since 1977, when the Grand Slam Breakfast is introduced, it has been a very popular breakfast at Denny’s. I ordered the ultimate Grand Slam — the Extreme Grand Slam Breakfast. This consist of bacon, hash browns, sausages and a choice of eggs. The price, $8.59.


The Grand Slam also comes with pancakes, soft and fluffy. Made to perfection. Yummy.


Well, as long as there is hash browns, Arkensen will order that. So, he got the Sausage Slam Breakfast with sunny-side up eggs, sausages, and of course hash browns. Looks like a lot of food for a 12 year old, don’t you think? Anyway, Suanne who did not have an order for her own taxed everyone else’s plates. The Sausage Slam Breakfast costs $8.59.


Nanzaro ordered Jr French Toastix which costs $3.69. Wow, a piece of toast and a sausage for $3.69? Way over priced if you ask me.


The total bill came up to $34, including tips. We enjoyed the breakfast, no doubt about it. The restaurant was cozy and the service was great. Well, $34 is not something we would normally want to spend on breakfasts.

    Denny’s is expensive, I think I’ve only been there twice. But I go to IHOP regularly.

    I cant believe that a coffee at Denny’s costs more than a latte at Starbucks!! What is the world coming to!?

    My mother does the same thing that Suanne does. She’s been “taxing” all of our plates since we were little. Now that we’re all grown up, we kids have learned to order just a little more food than we plan to eat to make sure mom is well fed.

    I miss my family.

    I love Denny’s .. I used to go to the one in Orchard Road.. in Singapore.
    Unfortunately, this part of Canada.. i haven’t seen any Denny’s yet. Yarmouth.. nor in Halifax.. or New Bruswick. Sad eh..??

    Hi Stephanie: You gave me another idea for the blog. We’ll go to IHOP the next time we had breakfast out.

    Hi Chubbypanda: Yeah, Suanne is one of those mum who is “sensible”. She knows that the food ordered will be too much and so she’ll eat off the plates of everyone. The servings here in Vancouver are very large.

    Hi Cube: Just checked Village Inn over the net. Seems like they are only in the US. We’ll check that out the next time we’re in Washington.

    Hi Mamabok: What? No Denny’s in that part of Canada. This is sad alright! 🙁

    Hi Jenny: Wow, you noticed we did not blog for two days. Well, we had a death in the family and did not actually blog for a period of time. We just released those blogs we had accumulated for sometime. We are back in action now!

    I’m not sure if the deal is still on but usually at IHOP they have a $2 breakfast (not including coffee) before 9am. I tend to get the ‘International Passport’ breakfast, or ‘Vive la French Toast’. Yes, I go there regularly; it’s my comfort food. I’ve got several free meals too because I’ve stamped so many of the frequent diner cards 🙂

    This is Seven from Taiwan. I’m an editor of an English Learning magazine called EZ basic. I’m wondering if you can let us using your pics of Denny’s in our mag. EZ basic has a report about Denny’s. It will be great if you give us the permission to use your pics. Thanks a lot! I’ll mail you a copy after publishing of course. Thanks!
