Blondie’s continues longstanding food legacy under new management

New owner looking forward to seeing renovated space used for community gatherings

The long standing culture of brilliant breakfast and brunch continues at Blondie’s in Sylvan Lake following a change of ownership at the establishment in mid December.

The new owner of Blondie’s, Dale Plante said he is honoured and excited for the opportunity to continue offering Sylvan Lake and area residents the quality food the restaurant has come to be known for. Blondie’s is well known for their homemade breakfast options which include eggs benedict, Texas toast and thick cut bacon. Plante explained the menu will remain the same for the foreseeable future with only minor adjustments.

The family restaurant, which features a wide range of menu options for any time of the day, recently underwent renovations in hopes of addressing the lack of meeting spaces available for residents of Sylvan Lake.

Plante said he is looking forward to seeing the renovated meeting space be used by the community and has deemed the area of the restaurant ‘The Gathering Place’. The room is separated from the main Blondie’s restaurant by a removable sliding wall and is fully licensed with full food service.

“There is a real shortage of quality meeting rooms in Sylvan and I look forward to hosting every type of gathering from sports teams to celebration parties and corporate workshops,” said Plante. “The response has been amazing and reservations are now being taken. Sports teams of all ages are very welcome.”

Currently Blondie’s employs 12 full and part time staff members. The new owner explained he is looking forward to the summer months where a number of cross promotions are planned with other local businesses. Plante explained Blondie’s plans to enter into a Friday night ‘Nine & Dine’ promotion with Top of the Hill Golf Course, which is also under Plante’s management, where patrons are able to take in nine holes of golf followed by a steak dinner at Blondie’s.

“This is going to be a real favourite for couples, as well as for guys and gals nights out,” said Plante who added there will also be family golf and dinner days being offered throughout the season.

In addition to the new meeting room and the change of ownership the local restaurant is also offering catering services deliverable to any business, residence or school.

The restaurant’s current hours of operations are Monday to Thursday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Friday to Sunday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Plante explained the hours of operation will continue to lengthen into spring and summer.
