Well, hello there fellow brunchkins. It’s nearly the weekend, which means we’ve got two days to unapologetically binge as many shows as we can on Netflix, fall asleep on the couch at 3 am, then wake up for a mid-morning refresh at our favourite spot! However, because in-restaurant dining has been prohibited, our Funday feasts will look a little bit different. Cross your fingers for sunshiny weather, YYC, because the only way you’re allowed to take your eggs, is outside. Here are 10 awesome patio brunches to hit in Calgary.
Prefer to drink your brunch through a straw? Madison 1212 in Inglewood, not only has primo pre-lunch, post-breakfast food, and an adorable patio, they also have the cheapest mimosa’s in the city. This spring, check out the tasty inner-city spot, breathe in some fresh air and sip from flutes of champagne and juice for only $1.50.
