Restaurant at the Lougheed House – Calgary, Alberta

We got some of our wedding pictures done at Lougheed House and we thought it would be fun to travel back and go through the Lougheed House as tourist, instead of a photo shoot. When we got in, we were surprised to see they have opened a restaurant here, so we decided to have a little brunch at their restaurant that was located near the back side.

Inside the dining room, it basically only fits a few tables, but it’s still very impressive as we’re inside a sandstone mansion that was built so long ago – it’s really a neat experience.

I actually knew what I wanted this time as the menu isn’t too large, it narrows my selection down. I opted to have their Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict which wasn’t bad, although pretty standard.

My husband who is always a tad more adventurous than I am ordered their Bison Meatball Hash Eggs Benedict as he loves hashbrowns, especially the shredded potato hash. This has was more mini potato pieces but was still nicely cooked. The bison meatballs were a little dry, but very flavourful. It was a neat combination and the hollandaise sauce was really well made.

Our overall experience was great. We were celebrating a special milestone in our lives and had decent food, and then we got to take a tour of this amazing historic house.

1886 Buffalo Cafe – Calgary, AB

I wanted to go somewhere special for breakfast this one morning and my husbands coworker really enjoys 1886 Buffalo Cafe and so we decided to give it a try. Located right at Eau Claire, its a neat vintage looking place!

The interior also is still antique looking and the space is just fun! There’s subtle things around the restaurant that makes you feel like you’ve been transported back into time.

I ordered the Ed’s Benedict which has 2 eggs that I enjoy soft, with tomatoes and cheese with toast and hashbrowns. This meal is very hearty and delicious and you can taste that it’s home made and made with love!

My husband ordered his Steak & Eggs which has always been something he truly loves. It was honestly an awesome breakfast and with large portions, it is very filling. The steak was grilled to perfection, and it was soft and tender.

Honestly, we really enjoyed this place. The atmosphere was cute and the food was soo good. The prices were a bit high, but due to the location, and the quality of food, it was justifiable! The restaurant is small, and very popular, so chances are, you’ll have to wait for a table and service!
