When it comes to the most important meal of the day, sometimes you gotta go big, or go home. This is Alberta, after all!
Fewer breakfast items cross the threshold from genius hybrid to decadent mash-up quite like the breakfast burger. Sure, you can be cool and just “put an egg on it” anytime of day, but there is something so badass about ordering a burger for breakfast.
Hit up these five spots in Calgary where you can kick-start your day with a big ol’ beef-y breakfast burger.
Wake up and eat the sunshine when you encounter Diner Deluxe’s Good Morning Burger. They add an over easy egg, the groceries (aka lettuce, tomato, and onion), bacon, cheddar, and basil hollandaise piled on a seeded bun.
Address: 804 Edmonton Trail NE
