) If you’re in the market for a traditional brunch menu with a twist, this is it. The banana bread French toast is pretty spectacular, with the banana bread dipped in Bailey’s Irish Cream egg wash. It gives it that je-ne-sais-quoi and puts a smile on your face. It’s served with brown sugar butter and it’s to die for - seriously.

Manor Casual Bistro

2
10109 125 Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5N 1S7

This restaurant is located in a lovely 1920s-era mansion and has a lot of great charm. They offer complimentary fresh fruit to begin, which is always a nice way to start off your brunch. Continue with their homemade banana bread and pecan maple butter. You’ll want to eat just that, but don’t. Try the steak and eggs if you’re extra hungry or the braised beef short rib Benedict - a nice twist on the old favourite.

Culina Café at the Muttart Conservatory

Though open daily, brunch is the time to visit. Using fresh greens and herbs grown right in the Muttart Conservatory greenhouse, this little slice of heaven rustles up some of the best brunch in town. To start, try grilled cornbread with berry-spiked butter. The eggs benny (ham or veggie option) is divine. But, if you prefer, try the classic French toast.

Canteen

10522 124 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5N 1R9

The “little sister” to the original Red Ox Inn, this small and cozy restaurant is a great place to be. The best thing ever? Their corn fritters with smoky maple syrup - order lots. And the Dutch baby pancake with rhubarb compote, back bacon and eggs is like nothing you’ve ever had before.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
