Breakfast Club YEG

Breakfast Club YEG is a group of ladies in Edmonton, Alberta Canada who get together on a monthly basis to have breakfast and catch up. For three years we have been content to do just that, but now we’ve decided to chronicle our breakfast adventures. This blog is as much for us as it (hopefully) is for you.

Our May plan was to take a road trip to try an out of town restaurant, but plans fell through (I’m not going to disclose where we planned on going in case we end up making it there another time, you know, build some suspense). The 4 of us who could still meet chose to … Continue readi...

February found us at a family-run diner, across from Hazeldean Park – Red Goose.  I’m pretty sure this spot has been around forever and it’s just what you’d expect. My favourite part was the hand written receipt.  They have the short-hand nailed down.  This reads: bacon, h...

Meeting at Meat

January we headed to Whyte Ave to experience the smoked glory of Meat. Meat doesn’t take reservations, and since we had a group, we made sure we were there early to get a spot in line for opening time. We got a spot alright,  we were first through the door! I don’t know if this …...

The Local Omnivore
October Breakfast Club found us at a location that was a first time visit for everyone in our group.  I think that’s rare!  Six of us met Saturday at 10am – our usual time – and none of us had experienced The Local Omnivore.  I was surprised by how spacious the space was inside....

Readers of this blog will of course be familiar with the fantastic Edmonton spot Clementine, so it may come as a surprise to learn that there is an unrelated restaurant in Winnipeg going by the same sweet name.
