You Can’t Miss These Brunch Spots

Looking for brunch in Downtown Edmonton? There’s something for everyone from wait-worthy eggs benedict to all-you-can-eat buffets

OEB Breakfast Co.

Breakfast is the only thing they do at OEB Breakfast Co., so you know they do it right. The menu covers eggs every-which-way (omelets, bennies, scrambled) but with a bit of twist. Tuck into generous portions of confit duck and egg, tuna crudo poutine or Nutella French toast. 10174 100A Street

District Café & Bakery

Start your weekend off right with brunch at District Café & Bakery. Serial restaurateur Nate Box is the genius behind a small approachable menu that includes classic sandwiches like BLT and tuna salad. 10011 109 Street


Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, no matter if you eat eggs and bacon in the morning or at 3am. Head to Denny’s for all your morning favourite meals, burgers, sandwiches and classic dinners. Open 24/7. 10803 104 Avenue

Central Social Hall

The weekend brunch at Central Social Hall covers the usual gamut of eggs and bacon, breakfast poutines, skillets and bennies. Wash it down with the best mimosas and Aperol spritzes Downtown. 10909 Jasper Avenue

Hotel MacDonald

Hotel MacDonald is the place to be on a Sunday. Afternoon tea is a decadent spread featuring finger sandwiches, pastries, including their signature Mac honey scones. Staff will guide you the selection of 12 loose leaf teas. 10065 100 Street


Time stands still at this classic diner that has been located at the same Jasper Avenue spot since 1942. The food at The Commodore isn’t fancy but it’s quality meals priced just right. Burgers of all sorts served with fries and salad cost under $10, and $7 breakfast dishes are served all day. Just keep in mind that they close by 4pm. Best of all, owner David Gee has the most impressive music collection on rotation all-day. 10712 Jasper Avenue


There’s plenty for carnivores to love at DOSC. You’ll feel better than satisfied with chicken and cruffles and an avocado benny, but don’t ignore heartier meaty dishes too such as oxtail poutine and steak sandwich. Booze? Try the spiked chai or matcha tonic. 10190 104 Street

Campio Brewing Co.

Capitalizing on the flexibility of eggs, Campio Brewing Co. offers several types of handhelds, including short rib and eggs, classic fried egg sandwich, bean and cheese breakfast burrito. Satisfy your sweet tooth with ‘dulce and banana’ French toast.  10257 105 Street


Start your weekend off right with brunch at Filistix, a restaurant specializing in Filipino and southeast Asian cuisine. A traditional Filipino breakfast consists of a sweet spicy longanisa sausage and garlic fried rice topped with a fried egg. 10621 100 Avenue

Say Uncle

If you could do brunch every day, Say Uncle is the kinda place where you’d keep coming back again and again for the simpler things. You’ll never tire of breakfast-as-dinner dishes like chicken and waffles, pulled pork sides and spice shakshuka. Pickle juice Caesars and mimosas pair well with classic eggs, bacon and hashbrown plates. 10184 104 Street

Rocky Mountain Icehouse

Deciding a brunch spot can be a hard choice for some, but Rocky Mountain Icehouse’s rotating brunch offerings on Saturday and Sunday makes it easy. Order the icehouse wings, mac & cheese hush puppies, and a pint of rotating beer on tap. 10516 Jasper Avenue

Kelly’s Pub

It’s 5 pm somewhere. With $6 Caesars and mimosas, Kelly’s Pub clearly knows boozy brunches. Pick your poison and then go for the Kelly’s Morning After, a heaping plate with a loaded omelette, sausages, bacon, hashbrowns, French toast and baked beans.  10156 104 Street


Downtown breakfast buffets have come a long way from cold scramble eggs and dried hashbrowns. At Maria, you can eat your fill of authentic Mexican dishes and North American favourites. Highlights include chorizo con papas (spicy chorizo sausage with potatoes), sincronizada (ham and cheese quesadillas) and, of course, all-you-can eat bacon. There’s also a small selection of fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal and granola. Served Saturdays and Sundays from 9 am to 1 pm for $25. 10220 103 Street

De Dutch

De Dutch doesn’t mess around when it comes to breakfast platters. This place exists to please even the pickiest brunchers. On the menu are different types of meals, ranging from French toast to hashbrowns and eggs. But the star of the menu are the Dutchman Style Breakfast Platters, Dutch benedicts, and Dutch omelettes. 10030 Jasper Avenue
