English breakfast in Calgary?

Does anyone know anywhere in Calgary that serves full English breakfast? (Bacon, eggs, grilled tomatoes, fried mushrooms, toast, sausages, beans and even blood pudding?)
Thanks!

    Yes, Calgary's best pubs (Limeriks, Joyce on 4th, Kilkenny, Seanachie, Donegal) does or at least used to serve this on the weekend.

      Nowhere in Calgary does a real 'full English'. With a bit of work though you can buy some of the essentials and do your own. Some decent free run eggs. Superstore just started selling a decent English style back bacon (it's packaged as Wiltshire Bacon). You can get the UK Heinz baked beans from any english store. You can pick up a good black pudding from a butchers. Throw a slice of fried bread into the mix with the mushrooms and toms and you're getting somewhere close. Still haven't sourced a good English-style sausage to go with this yet though. That's still the missing piece.

        I had something approximating full English at the Drum & Monkey two weeks ago; 1st St and 11th Ave SW. IIRC, everything but the blood pudding but adding a big heap of hash browns, $8.99.

        Pity the soccer game didn't exactly live up to the full English expectations.
