Breakfast in Bowness?

Will be heading west in the morning, and wondering if anyone can recommend a quick, short-order-style breakfast in Bowness? Eggs and bacon, corned beef hash, hot sauce, that type of thing.

  1. Not quite Bowness but what about The Lazy Loaf & Kettle in Parkdale?

      ahh, thanks for the suggestion! haven't been there for a couple of years, and kinda forgot it was there. this just might fit the bill!

    2. Cadence Coffee east of Bow Cycle is the only place I know of down there. I'd be interested to hear of any other spots in the area though.

        thanks! i googled it, but the site doesn't seem to be working. can you tell me what kind of breakfast they serve? thanks!

          Cadence isn't for a quick breakfast, it's a sit-down place, sort of a local hangout. They have the usual egg, bacon and breakfast sandwich combos, home-baked goods (the pies are grerat) and they have a lunch menu, they are closed at 3:00 pm. They have nice, juicy, massive cinnamon buns every Sunday, not sure about Saturday. Nice owners, they used to play in a rock band.

      2. Cadence is good though not exactly short order type. Not that it isn't fast but the food is better than basic diner food.

        I'm fed up with the lines at Lazy Loaf and Kettle but I had lunch at the Extreme Bean which is half a block from Lazy Loaf and Kettle on Bowness Rd and it was good. They might be a good bet for breakfast.

        There is a more diner style cafe on Bowness Rd and 79th st. The name escapes me but it is in the strip mall facing south on the north side of Bowness Rd. Someone on here said something about it being a greasy spoon but I've never eaten there.

        Finally, Angel Drive-In on 85 st and 47 ave NW serves breakfast. Their burgers are ok but I've only had lunch.

          oh, greasy spoon is kinda what we're looking for, haha. I looked on google maps and saw a place called "Dell Cafe." does that ring a bell?

            I have never been in Dell Cafe but we have had take out burgers from there a couple of times (fantastic burgers). My husband says if I go in I won't eat there again.....

              Dell Cafe is the place. Angel Drive-In would also be in that category. In spite of the name there are booths inside.
