The weekend is sacred for most of us. It’s the time of the week where we can sleep in, be as lazy as we want, or have a fun night out--which may or may not involve a drink or two (or three, or…well, way more than than three ?), and all without having to worry about being productive the next day. Well, except for Sunday night (when the dreaded phenomenon of Smonday kicks in).
And in the spirit of taking it easy and enjoying yourself, it’s easy to see why weekend brunch is such a popular staple for a lot of us. And Edmonton really steps up to the plate here, with a lot of its amazing restaurants offering a wonderful weekend brunch menu. So, the next time you’re craving an eggs benny, pancakes, etc., head out to any one of these restaurants, and start your Saturday/Sunday morning on a high note!
Note: As in the case with most of my lists, there is no particular order to these restaurants.
Note 2: I tried not to include big chain restaurants, to showcase our own local options.
