    • The Corkscrew on 149th Street and Stoney Plain Road was an odd place. Always so dark inside that I couldn’t see what I was eating.

      Miss that weird style of restaurant decor though.

      • Anyone mention Dreger’s Kitchen Corner?

        (I never went to the business but long knew of it and went to the same school as one of the kids.)

        Found this. A wonderful obituary - fascinating read and history lesson (if only all obituaries were like this):

          • I still have a cutlery set I bought from Dreger's before I moved out on my own.

            • All Things Bright and Beautiful?

              I still have an Italian lamp and end-table thingy from there. I think their logo is still painted on a brick wall, downtown along 104 (?) Street.

                • I took those two photos of Sir Donut myself in 1975 with my 110 film camera at the age of 14. My mom worked at that location at that time.

                    I remember that location well. It was on the N/W side of the street I recall. I liked their salad bar.

                      • I was only in there a couple of times but I do remember the floors and the smell of tobacco. It was a neat place to walk into.
