Best Brunch Spots
There’s a reason breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day- because it’s everything you could ever want all wrapped up in some delicious eats! It doesn’t matter whether you crave something sweet or savoury; brunch is here to save your grumbling stomach and fill that breakfast-less void in your day.
Old Country Inn (Formerly Barb and Ernies)
The Old Country Inn is down-right classic Edmonton. Any local can tell you this gem has stuck around through Edmonton’s good times and bad times, and there’s definitely a reason for it. If you’re an eggs benedict connoisseur, the next place you need to mosey your way down to is this one. Must-haves include any type of eggs benny you can get your hands on. Literally, any kind.
Get ready to venture over to Edmonton’s favourite Northside diner. Hathaway’s is teeming with endless character, fresh made pies and perfectly cooked eggs. You’ll be greeted at your table by the friendliest staff you can imagine, which will make your brunch taste that much better. Side note: if you’re into hot sauce, make sure to ask for a bottle out of their stash. And some milk for afterwards when your mouth is on fire (we speak from experience).
New York Bagel Café
What can one say about New York Bagel Café, except that until you’ve experienced it, you’ll never know its goodness. Picture your choice of homemade bagel (we highly recommend cheese) topped with a perfectly poached egg, buttery hollandaise, and some crazy cool ingredients. A few personal favourites include the Secondo, a classic topped with prosciutto and apples, and Bobby’s benedict, a full beef patty dressed up with pickles. As an added bonus (as if the cheese bagel wasn’t enough already!), each benedict comes plated with a bunch of neat little fancy fruits.
