Brunch in Calgary?

Hi everyone
I have to organize a brunch for a diverse group of about 30 (15 couples aprox.)
to celebrate a baby shower for a friend, it can be saturday or sunday
but I know places like Carriage House Inn have a brunch only on sundays
can you give me any ideas?

    My favorite brunch/breakfast restaurant is now in Alberta. Chez Cora is from Quebec and fantastic.

    Calgary 4600, 130th Ave. S.E. Unit 402, Calgary, T2Z 0C2 Telephone: (403) 265-7545
    Okotoks 28 Southridge Dr. Unit 100, T1S 1V4 Telephone: (403) 938-1522
    Northland Village Mall # 360, 5111 Northland Dr, NW, Calgary, T2L 2J8 Telephone: (403) 288-0040

      I don't think Cora's could accommodate a group of thirty people (at least not at Northland).

        Thanks for the idea, I love the place, what other locations do they have?

          The other location in Calgary is just off 130th Av SE: http://www.chezcora.com/a/05-ou-dejeu... Cora's is a Quebec company, originally Chez Cora Dejeuner hence chezcora.com. I've had good consistent service there, others have mixed reviews (of the Northland location if I remember correctly) and fyi they don't typically take reservations so I'd call about a group booking.

            I actually went today and it took thirty-five minutes from the time we ordered until our food arrived. It was kind of awkward as it made us quite late getting back to work. However, my food was delicious as usual.

        For a more fun environment the Zoo's brunch isn't bad and you get entrance to the zoo as a part of the price.

          Looks like you're looking in the South, I think The Ranche would be a great place to celebrate. They have quite a few private rooms.

            We had brunch at the Ranche this past Sunday and it was very, very good. Though I will say that it has that "wild game-esque" feel and depending on your crowd might be too "weird". (I found it great & so did my extended family but if I had taken my dad there he would have found it "different". That's why we don't eat out when he visits.)

            I usually recommend that people check out some of the golf courses that are close by. Most are capable of hosting 30 people, have beautiful locations and views, and excellent chefs. Siricco GC, just south of Spruce Meadows is a Michael Nobel restaurant, for example.
            Theres also Deerfoot Inn, they serve a brunch on weekends.
