Best brunches in Calgary
The Beltliner offers everything anyone could want at brunch. Cold pressed juices, fruit smoothies, fried pickles and hearty mains like chicken and waffles or biscuits and gravy are sure to keep bellies full and bodies warm. If you are fighting a hangover, order a shot or a Caesar.
Ten Foot Henry is best known for its vegetable-forward menu, which means a healthier start to the day than deep-fried everything. The light-filled, minimalist-chic setting offers a gentle start to the day until the first cup of coffee kicks in. Order the mushroom omelette.
This Calgary Mexican restaurant puts a brunch spin on their breakfast menu unlike any other. From chilaquiles to vegan-friendly tacos and sweets, this is one of the spiciest and best brunch spots in Calgary.
A local favorite, this Old School diner serves all-day breakfast classics with the retro charm you would expect. The traditional breakfast which includes eggs, hash browns and toast cannot be beat, but the kalamata scramble is a delicious Grecian spin on breakfast.
For a lighter start to the day, visit Sidewalk Citizen Bakery for freshly baked organic breads and artisanal pastries. Order a coffee and a bureka plate for a more filling meal or pair an espresso with a pastry.
Sit back and let breakfast come to you. Regency Palace opens at 10 a.m., making it an optimal stop for a brunch of dim sum. Choose from fried or steamed dumplings as the carts pass the table.
Though not much more needs to be said beyond breakfast poutine, Brasserie Kensington also mixed up cocktails inspired by The Breakfast Club. The duck fat-fried French fries are topped with cheese curds, gravy and an over-easy egg to tie the dish together.
Pair it with a Caesar for a truly Canadian experience.
