Comfort Food

The Beltliner, named for the old streetcar that ran down 12th ave in the early part of the last century, is a modern and casual interpretation of the classic diner.

We offer a menu crafted with local, seasonal, artisanal and handmade ingredients.

Our goal is to continually offer the freshest, most innovative, playful takes on diner fare in a fun and approachable setting. We take those classic diner staples you would expect and elevate them with great produce and modern techniques. Serious cooking while not taking ourselves too seriously.


We also have a small to-go coffee counter featuring Fratello coffee, Fresh Pressed Juice and loads of housemade pastries and snacks.

    The soup was very salty, the salad dressing was very fishy and the server (although it was his first day and I have sympathy for that) forgot to come back to take our order.

    Delicious avocado toast, but strange to me that they charge extra for condiments like hot sauce? We had a reso booked for group of 3 but the 3rd person was about 20 minutes late, even after she arrived and the restaurant wasn't busy it took another 15 minutes to get any service. The waitress basically was avoiding eye contact, haha. This was for a birthday brunch - was very excited to visit but not too sure I'd go back after that experience...

    Everything was super delicious and our server was outstanding. The only off putting thing was when I arrived, I was told that they do not accept reservations on the weekend, even though Open Table had let me book one…and that I was very lucky to get a table!?!! Umm ok. If it hadn’t been for the great food and service after that I would not ever be returning.
