The perfect way to spend a Sunday morning…

My answer? Food! There’s nothing better than going out for a bite to eat on a relaxing Sunday. Today, marks two weeks living in Calgary, Alberta and I’ve wasted no time trying out some of the favourite eateries here.

Nellie’s Cosmic Café – a neighbourhood favourite. So last Sunday I visited Nellie’s. A colourful, vintage diner. After being seated at a window booth, I was straight away greeted with a hot cup of coffee and a newspaper. Especially welcoming on a cold, winters day! I ordered the fresh blueberry pancakes.

When my brunch arrived, I couldn’t help but think, ‘such typical American/Canadian portions!’ as I stared at the huge stack of fluffy pancakes. I generously poured maple syrup all over them and tucked in. I certainly wasn’t disappointed, they were delicious. Surprisingly, I almost finished them! I enjoyed looking at the colourful vintage posters around the diner too.

This Sunday I went to Galaxie Diner for brunch. It was quite different to Nellie’s. It had that ‘grubby’ diner look that you see in some movies and was very loud. But I liked it, it was so unpretentious. It’s apparently a real neighbourhood favourite and has been here for years. It had a great, retro vibe…with bright red leather booths and a vintage-looking long counter for the ‘solo diners’. I ordered the ‘Huevos Rancheros’. Amazing!

Nellie’s had a bit more of a quiet, peaceful feel – I sat there for a good few hours reading. Galaxie on the other hand, felt hectic and loud. Not the kind of place to read a book but delicious food and friendly service. Both great diners that I’ll be revisiting but for different reasons!
