Eggs are among the most popular breakfast foods — fact. They’re rich in high-quality proteins that not only keep us feeling full, but also provide us with the energy needed to get through the day.

But if you think of eggs primarily as something to cover in hollandaise sauce or cook in an omelette, you’re missing out on the many creative ways to scarf down these tiny nutrition bombs!

Thanks to some inspiration from our friends at the Egg Farmers of Alberta, we’ve listed the top places where you can get your fill of this naturally nutrient-dense food in Edmonton.

This contemporary diner is a great place for brunch, but if you miss that you can always come back at night when they reopen for cocktails and dinner service. Diners have the option to add a delicious poached egg to Wilfred’s Chicken Caesar, making this already healthy dish even healthier with omega-3 fatty acids our bodies need (but are not able to produce naturally). Want to take it a sustainable step further? Just sub the chicken out for avocado.
