Taste the Kettle bread and you know the recipe for the nine-grain, homemade loaf was not developed overnight. Relying on recipes handed down through generations, and brave enough to invent a few of their own, Michel and Helen Labonté built the Lazy Loaf and Kettle to the thriving business it is today. Adding a natural air for hospitality to an old-fashioned work ethic, the Labontés began their baking venture as a home based business in 1989. By 1994, they were serving a regular, devoted customer base from their location on Parkdale Crescent. With so much goodness behind every cup of locally roasted coffee and fresh sandwiches served, it's easy to see why the Loaf is one of Calgarians' favourite eating spots. more...

All-day breakfast spots in Calgary

All-day breakfast spots in Calgary

A favourite of Montgomery residents, the Lazy Loaf and Kettle offers up a traditional Western-style breakfast menu. Home-baked toast and eggs with the usual, omelettes, eggs Benedict, French toast, granola and pancakes all are served in generous portions. The side-street restaurant is on the small side, seating less than 50 patrons, but turnover is quick.

This homey restaurant overflows with sticky buns and hearty soups just like mom used to make. Just a hop off Memorial Drive on the main floor of an unassuming brown commercial building, Lazy Loaf & Kettle also serves up fresh-roasted coffee, sandwiches made with fresh-baked bread, pancakes, and desserts – the massive ginger cookie sandwich with cream cheese icing is deadly. The warm atmosphere and handiness to the Bow River pathway make it perfect for a nosh for one.

Though the Lazy Loaf & Kettle is best known for its soup and sandwiches, the café and bakery also serves delectable desserts. Especially good is its chocolate-explosion cake. The double-layered chocolate cake is covered with cream-cheese icing and a chocolate ganache. Need we say more?
