This Boozy All-Day-Brunch Spot In Calgary Will Make You Feel Like You're In The UK
Say what you will about day drinking but there is no denying that it can be a whole lot of fun if you're in the right place with the best people. This is why we're obsessed with Queens Breakfast and Cocktails in Calgary. They pair up an all-day breakfast menu with colourful craft cocktails and you need to check it out. This Calgary brunch spot has its decor designed around the Queen's England, so you can easily imagine yourself in a cozy English pub as you are sipping down the cocktails.
Queens just launched in the fall of 2019. Though they may not have a website, their Instagram reveals more than enough to give you a taste of what is offered at this swoon-worthy brunch destination.
The restaurant is operated by the same entrepreneurs who run Vero Bistro in Kensington, which has been rated as one of the best restaurants in the country by Open Table and Trip Advisor.
You can expect the same standard of elegance, modernity, and distinctive European cuisine from Queens as well.
For starters, they're not holding back from the spirit of their name by extensively featuring portraits of English queens throughout the space.
When you're sipping those smooth cocktails and diving into your delicious french toast, you are practically brunching with the best of English royalty, let's be honest.
According to the Calgary Herald, the "food is just as sophisticated as the room," so you can surely expect an appealing blend of the fancy, the boozy, and the tasty.
Bring on the cocktails.
The Calgary Herald goes on to describe the team of chefs who have designed the culinary experience at this classy establishment. Hailing from Calgary's own SAIT, Jenny Chan is a specialist at making Italian food from scratch.
Chan experiments with all types of food at Queens and clearly has fun doing it.
When you've got delicacies such as Spanish chorizo with bruschetta and crispy onion, or Hong Kong-style French Toast with peanut butter condensed milk and brûléed banana on the menu, we've been on board from day one.
Their Facebook page covers all the basic information you need to know before you step inside this amazing restaurant.
