I had theirJust 30 minutes north of Calgary is the quaint Town of Crossfield. There you will find the Diner at Shorty's that is a must to check out! I had their Fish & Chips, it was delicious and l loved how light and crispy. the batter was. We totally enjoyed our meal, the casual atmosphere, friendly staff, and excellent service.
      The Diners owner came out with an i-pad and gave us a quick slideshow photo history of Shorty's as he walked us to each point of interest in the diner. It was a nice touch to do this and l appreciated it very much.
      I am looking forward to visiting Shorty's again soon.

    How cool is this find...a retro postcard from Eastern PEI! I have fond memories of the (now closed) Lobster Shanty. I found this in a small bookstore in Montreal for 25 cents...what a small world.
