May 11 2023, 8:00 pm

One might argue that brunch is the most important meal of the day — or at least the week — and we are here to help with the best brunch spots in Edmonton.

What makes brunch so special is that it’s FUN!

Breakfast happens every single day of the week, but brunch should be an event.

Thankfully, Edmonton is filled with incredible spots for Eggs Benny, omelettes, breakfast poutine, and more, and lots of those eateries are located right in the heart of the city.

Whether you want to go on a cute breakfast date with that special someone, have a boozy brunch with your squad, or kick off a day of birthday celebrations, you’re sure to find somewhere within walking distance in downtown YEG.

Under the High Wheel

Serving brunch every single day from 9 am to 3 pm, with a wonderful happy hour, this spot is one of the best brunch spots in Edmonton.

The menu is split between sweet and savoury. If you have a sweet tooth, the Belgian waffles and crepes can’t be beaten. If savoury is more your style, then we recommend the gluten-free bangers and mash, with organic chicken honey sausages, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, two sunny eggs, beef reduction, and caramelized onion.

Probably more well-known for its amazing lunch and dinner in a modern space, Ampersand 27 also has an amazing (and fun) brunch menu.

Most of the expected classics are made extremely well here, but it’s the Brunchuterie Board that always has heads turning here. This massive dish covers the table, with scrambled eggs, smoked bacon, pulled pork, smashed garlic baby potatoes, waffles with maple syrup, Nutella, berry compote, fruit and berries, lemon butter, whipped cream, and a side of toast.

There are also nine brunch-specific cocktails if you’re feeling like turning it into a boozy one.
