It’s Breakfast Week! We’re serving up a heaping plateful of delicious stories about the most important meal of the day–and where to get it in Calgary.

If finding baskets of fresh blueberries seems a sunny, distant memory from our usual blustery January, “cold” thinking isn’t such a bad thing.

Most of the blueberries you’ll find in the frozen section in Calgary come from the province next door to the west, says the BC Blueberry Council. But frozen blueberries are glorious additions to pancakes. If you’re feeling like having someone else do the cooking and you’re in the mood for these fruity flapjacks, here is where to find blueberry pancakes in Calgary.
