Lunch or ice cream, the choice is yours when you visit Katie’s Crossing, a train car restaurant outside of Ardrossan, with the kids. Located just fifteen minutes outside of Sherwood Park, it’s one of those hidden gems that the kids are going to talk about, again and again.
What’s on the menu at Katie’s Crossing?
Fish and chips, chicken fingers, and fries – typical diner fare, only it’s on a train! There are options like fries, onion rings and veggie burgers, and ice cream to finish up lunch. Prices are reasonable, for six of us to visit it was $75 – with ice cream.
When it comes to eating, you’ve got a couple of options. You can eat inside the train car, or on one of the picnic tables outside while the kids explore the area and the train.
Here’s what you need to know before you go
- Katie’s Crossing is cash only – no debit, no credit. Grab cash before you visit
- Check the hours! You can follow along with the ours on the Katie’s Crossing Facebook page, or call the train before you go to see if it’s open
- There are stairs to get into the train – if you’re bringing a stroller, we would suggest leaving it in the car and using a carrier.
- Staff will bring out the food when it’s ready, to you. It’s an easy eating experience with the kids and you don’t have to worry about them being quiet in a restaurant.
