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.
