I'll start with the disclaimer that I am not a brunch fan - but we hang with a brunch-y crew so...
Had brunch at the Delta Bow Valley yesterday - fairly delish, pretty consistent quality and worth the half price deal that we got. The mini waffles were great the meat quality was mediocre.
Cannot hold a candle to the amazing brunch we get at Banff Park Lodge (but that's a touch of a drive).
Nellies - too much food but their Maple BLT is yummy - never any concerns
Red's the newer place on 4th - fun and funky - prob a new favorite but stay away from the eggs benny with the smoked salmon unless you are comfortable with a strong fishy flavor - I often love smoked salmon and cannot quite put my finger on what was wrong but it was very overpowering
Big Fish on Edmonton Trail - fish in the morning freaks me out I won't lie I avoided it but everyone else was eating it and enjoyed, my meal was good the homemade ketchup was delish but that was the best part of my meal - but I freely admit I didn't partake in what is probably their strongest dishes
A place down in the deep south, not even worth remembering but I have a phobia of suburbia so that may have tainted my opinion
Gosh I'm sure there is more but I would have to say Red's is my current fav in YYC for Breakfast foods - love the atmosphere! And Banff Park Lodge for buffet style brunch (yes I know it's not YYC) and if I'm gonna include Banff I have to give a nod to Coyotes and their stuffed french toast - YUM. So Chowhounders where should we hit up next? I'm sure you will all mention Cora's - coming from the East I've had Cora's a million times, no problems with it but I'm NOT waiting in lineup for hours to eat it!! And I cannot get the fellow brunchers out of bed early enough to avoid the lineup
