If breakfast is a meal, brunch is a culture
It’s breakfast without the alarm clock. And it brings with it everyone’s favorite list of questions: Sweet or savory? Coffee or mimosa? Why not get it all?! Regardless of your preferences, there is a ‘brunch’ of spots in the Leduc Region you need to try.
After thorough research (years of indulging in eggs, waffles, & lattes – all in the name of science, of course), we’ve come up with a list of places that will fill that breakfast-less void in your stomach. Read on to discover the best brunch in the Leduc Region…
HALO Bar & Bistro
For a deluxe brunch experience, make your way to HALO Bar & Bistro. Found inside the Renaissance Edmonton Airport Hotel, it’s the perfect setting for a weekend brunch outing with friends. The space itself is classy and modern – imagine yourself sinking back into one of their stylish, comfy chairs with a mimosa in hand – you’ll look right in place. The chic décor was actually designed by the same team behind the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas! Late sleepers beware – the breakfast menu closes at 11 AM, so be sure to drag yourself out of bed early enough to get here.
Go-to Order: Eggs Benedict! Topped with Canadian back bacon and covered in Hollandaise sauce, HALO’s Eggs Benedict just cannot be replicated at home! If you’re feeling classy – upgrade to the Smoked BC Salmon version. Regardless of what you choose from their menu, make sure to pair it with one of HALO’s famous mimosas.
Local farm-to-fork comfort food and small-town service? Sounds like a winning combination to us. HomeRoom Diner is a must-try Sunday brunch spot in Devon – their cozy atmosphere and handmade food will make you feel at home (except you don’t have to cook, which makes it even better). With a seasonally rotating menu that features local producers, you’ll feel good after enjoying brunch here (and not just from a full stomach).
Go-to Order: You can’t go wrong with the ‘Alberta Plate’ – featuring two Morinville colony eggs, Meuwly’s brunch sausage, bacon, toast, fried breakfast potatoes, AND fruit salad. Craving something sweet? We recommend the warm sour cherry and chocolate croissant bread pudding.
Cora’s Breakfast & Lunch
This brunch spot has French-Canadian roots and was originally called ‘Chez Cora Dejeuners’. Our Leduc location has been piling extravagant amounts of fresh fruit onto breakfast lover’s plates since opening in 2012. Their menu is extensive – deciding on the perfect thing to eat is almost as difficult as finishing the huge portion sizes. Planning family brunch here on a weekend? Try to come a bit earlier in the morning to beat the lineup for this popular spot.
Go-to Order: Start your morning (or afternoon) off right with a fruit cocktail drink – it’s packed with Vitamin C and made from different fresh fruit each day. For your main entrée, the Sunshine Panini Crepe is a perfect choice. If you’re a French toast lover, you have to try Cora’s 1990’s Harvest. Pro tip: upgrade your breakfast potatoes to the cheesy version (trust us on this one).
There’s no better way to put it – this truck stop in Nisku serves a bangin’ brunch. Blackjacks Roadhouse is known for everything you want from a brunch spot – a genuine & unique diner style atmosphere, incredible flavors, and generous portion sizes. The best part? Their breakfast menu is served all day. So, yes, you can cure both your stomach and soul with bacon & eggs at 3 PM on a Sunday!
Go-to Order: The ultimate brunch classic: chicken & waffles! Homemade fried chicken piled high on a crispy Belgian waffle, topped with fresh whipped cream and drizzled with syrup – now that’s what brunch dreams are made of.
The Canadian Brewhouse
Calling all sports (and brunch) lovers! The Canadian Brewhouse in Leduc is must-visit spot. They bring our their brunch menu on Saturdays, Sundays, and Holidays from 11 AM to 4 PM, satisfying the grumbling stomachs of late-breakfast-goers with uniquely Canadian cuisine. Make sure to bring your cell phone with you – The Canadian Brewhouse has moved to a QR code menu to align with health & safety regulations.
Go-to Order: Brunch at The Canadian Brewhouse calls for a truly Canadian dish, and that’s why our recommendation is the Five Star Breakfast Poutine! Crispy, seasoned potato wedges topped with two sunny-side-up eggs, peppers, onions, cheese curds, bacon, and of course, creamy Hollandaise sauce. Pair it with a Caesar – those are on special on Saturdays & Sundays!
Eclipse Restaurant + Lounge
Last, but certainly not least, on our list of go-to brunch spots in the Leduc Region is Eclipse Restaurant + Lounge. Found inside the Holiday Inn & Suites Edmonton Airport & Conference Centre, this Nisku gem is a foodie’s dream destination. Using a variety of simple ingredients, expert chefs find a way to elevate each dish & make it unique. As for service, friendly staff make sure your food is served exactly to your liking, going out of their way to create an exceptional dining experience.
Go-to Order: Their breakfast menu is split into two: a specialties section (brunch items with a unique twist) and hotel favorites (tried and true classics). A recommended dish from the former category has to be the Avocado Toast with Eggs, while a go-to in the latter group is the Farmers Benedict Skillet
