What you do get, however, are some of the best home-style breakfast favourites such as omelettes, hashes and eggs benedict which are cooked well and taste good every time.

Grumans Catering and Delicatessen – Victoria Park
The fast-paced, urban lifestyle of Victoria Park demands restaurants like Grumans Catering and Delicatessen where you can either choose to sit down and eat a gourmet breakfast / brunch / lunch or grab a quick-bite to go while on your way.
We’ve done both, although for breakfast we recommend sitting down and enjoying one of Grumans breakfast options, all of which are easy-to-order online for pick-up. This place also has an extensive list of other lunch and dinner options, but we will leave that one up to you!

Kane’s Harley Diner
Eating at Kane’s Harley Diner almost feels like you’ve transcended reality and into the movie Grease Lightning. Inside you’ll find a quaint ambiance equipped with unfashionable orange paint, antique jukeboxes and motorcycles that makes dining here as enjoyable as the food.
As with most other best breakfast diners in southeast Calgary, you’ll find simple home-style meals on the menu at a very affordable price. Kane’s signature is simplicity and affordability and has always been consistently good every time I’ve visited.

Sunday brunch buffet at Thomsons was so satisfying. From regular breakfast items, waffles, omeletes, pancakes, eggs Benedict, to dim sum, seafood, soup/salad, gourmet cheese, roast beef and dessert. Even the Greek yogurt parfait was so amazingly good. No wonder I had 7+ plates of food. I wished my stomach was bigger #sundaybrunch #bigbrunch #indulgenteats #breakfastandlunch #somuchfood
