There’s no better way to start the day than to have a good, hearty breakfast.
Sometimes we don’t always feel like cooking during the early hours of the morning and would prefer to hit up a favourite breakfast restaurant close to home.
If you happen to live in the southwest, you probably already know a handful of the best breakfast spots to check out when it’s time to relax and have someone else do the cooking.
But just in case you don’t or are looking for a new spot, here are Calgaryism’s best breakfast restaurants in SW Calgary. Also check out these Best Breakfast Spots in NW Calgary today!
- Address – 827 10th Avenue SW
- Phone Number – 403-261-9759
- Cost – $9 to $15
There are few places in Calgary where you can still get a top-of-the-line breakfast for less than $10. Holy Grill… holy art thou for being one of them.
Try the Calgaryism omelette (seen in the picture above) – bacon, ham, avocado, banana peppers and a whole bunch of other lovely ingredients that will knock your socks off.

If you’re looking for a unique Euro-style breakfast experience, then a trip to Sweet Life Crepes & Coffee House should be a go.
I highly recommend one of their crepes, or, if you’re going for protein the Regular Joe, a Belgian waffle topped with two scrambled eggs and your choice of a beef breakfast sausage or smoked maple bacon. Comes with hot maple syrup, yummy!

MONKI Breakfastclub & Bistro is a newer southwest breakfast restaurant that has made a strong impression on the local foodie community, also making it one of the Top 5 Breakfast Restaurants in Connaught.
I highly recommend the 6oz angus steak & eggs, comes with mushrooms, goat cheese and hollandaise sauce… my mouth is just watering thinking about it!

Laurier Lounge’s heritage building isn’t only beautiful, but promotes a relaxing breakfast experience every time.
I would recommend the Laurier Brunch Plate; it comes with one egg benedict of your choice (smoked salmon, pancetta, traditional or mushroom forestiere), a strawberry crepe, hashbrowns and bacon.

Pfanntastic Pannenkoek Haus is the only authentic Dutch pancake house in Calgary. If you haven’t been, you must go and experience this place at least once!
Dutch pancakes kind of remind me of pizza in a way as they are both circular and are topped with ingredients. Try any Pannenkoek that has ingredients you’ll love, mine is the Rosti, ui, spek en kaas – shredded potato, onion, bacon and cheese.

Located in the base of Eighth Avenue Place, Cucina is a convenient breakfast pit-stop for downtown workers in the early hours of the morning.
Try the wild B.C. mushrooms & poached eggs on toast creation, a must try for benny lovers and those who enjoy an absolutely delicious and different kind of breakfast dish.

Reds Diner has long been a favourite for breakfast not only in Mission, but in the entire city. People come from all over the southwest head to the inner city neighbourhood for Red’s exceptional food time and time again.
I personally love the Classic 3 Egg Omelette: mushrooms, ham, green onions, tomato and cheddar cheese served with tasty hashbrowns. For something lighter try the Oatmeal Brulee, served with caramelized cinnamon sugar and your choice of toast.

Galaxie Diner is well known for both its savoury Montréal smoked meat sandwiches and yummy breakfast / brunch meals.
I usually get the breakfast burrito – scrambled eggs, bacon, beef sausage, cheese, onions, sautéed mushrooms and banana peppers rolled into a flour tortilla. If you’re on the road, call in 10 minutes before you arrive and it’ll be warm and ready to go!
