Weekend Breakfast/Brunch - YYC
It seems like a lot of places are offering brunch nowadays. Where are your favourite spot in Calgary for brunch, outside of the old standbys (ie: Diner Deluxe, Galaxy Diner, OEB, etc). One of my recent favourites was Borgo. Mmm...
Has anyone tried Mango Shiva or Carino for brunch yet?
With Mother's Day coming up I suggest Thomsons at the Hyatt. They do an over the top spread with several stations throughout the foyer. Last time we went there was a sushi station, crepe station and a long list of breakfast standards and desserts. Booking in advance is a must (DH learned that one the hard way lol).
Otherwise on a regular day I suggest Blue Star Diner since it hasn't been mentioned. The Albertan omelette was unexpectedly addictive. We're not in town as much as I'd like but I make a point of getting to Blue Star every chance I get.
I loved Borgo for brunch. There some really nice original dishes. Not the same old, same old eggs benny, ect. I recently enjoyed a baked egg “Purgatorio”.
I went to Mango Shiva for brunch in the winter. It seemed quite similar to the regular lunch buffet, with the addition of some pre-made eggs benedict in a warming tray and more fruit trays. Not that special. But I do enjoy their regular Indian dishes so I was happy. Strangely, there were only a handful of people there the entire time.
